I cannot address your question about NetView/NT, but MLMs are good for
distributing network discovery, status polling, and data
collection/thresholding to a regional site. All of these functions are
tightly integrated between the MLM and the NetView server utilizing the
NetView collection facility and APM.  For example, you can define a policy
in APM to threshold on CPU utilization on all of your routers (you need a
NetView collection that defines all of the routers).  NetView will
automatically determine which routers are managed by which MLM and
distribute the policy to the appropriate MLM.

        Hi all ,
        I'd like to know the difference between implementing a distributed
        management using Netview/AIX at the central site with Netview/NT
        at the regional sites that reports to the Server , and using
        a Client/Server implementation for the Netview with NV/AIX as the
        server and NV/NT as clients. What's the type of information that
        is reported to the central management in each case ?
        Another question is for the MLM , When do I use MLM or Netview
        in the regional site ?
        Appreciate any help.
