Subject: Netview versus TEC and paging
     Hi everybody,

     At first I want to thank James for his answer on my question about
     UM-link traps. IPtrace pointed that The problem was not netview.
     Technical Support is looking into it.

     The situation is as follows:
     I'm using Netview (4) as enterprise console for all kinds of failures
     in the network. The helpdesk has a visualised view of the services
     that we provide as department (they don't have to understand technical
     netview stuff). Netview generates daily services-reports with the CPU,
     networkload, filesystem-sizes and SNMP-events of every service.

     A couple of things are in place and some not.
     The signals (SNMP-traps) I'm receiving in Netview ar coming from:
     Tivoli Distributed Monitoring, AIX errorlogs, NT errors and of course
     the usual Netview network traps from nodes (until now only in Europe)

     Almost working and planned are:
     ControlM (OS390, SAP R3), UPS (UM-link), Tivoli modules (SAP R3,
     Databases, OS390), Command MQ, SAS for more reporting possibilities,
     and maybe more.

     Also almost working is paging outside office-hours initiated by
     SNMP-traps. Planned is an upgrade to Netview 5, because of the
     browsing facilities.

     Our monitoring environment becomes more and more complex. So far
     nobody can tell me why I should better be off with TEC instead of
     Netview as enterprise console, besides the better ruler possibilities
     which I don't need. Not even the people of IBM and Tivoli I spoke.

     I wan't to ask you Netview experts if you have experienced in an
     environment with many different trap-resources if I should consider
     TEC (besides netview) or better stay with Netview and why.

     Reading all the mail in the high quality subscriberslist gives me good
     hope on some reactions.

     Thanks in advance,

     Greetings Cornelis Jacobi
