Ah, the holy grail of network management. No, it is not built in to the
the tools to do it are there, with the ruleset editor. Since rulesets now
this has become easier to administer and is doable for small to medium
that are fairly static.
For larger networks, there are a number of add-on options on the market. I
have not used
them, but others here may be able to give you some feedback:
Usually when this question comes up, we hear from http://www.tavve.com.
Also, Tivoli has recently acquired and now offers Tivoli Manager for
Connectivity, which sits between Netview and the T/EC and handles
info on that is at http://www.tivoli.com/o_products/html/netcon.html.
I like eye-ball correlation best. It's free and no work.

Subject: Down Stream Event Suppression
I haven't been using the last couple versions of Netview. Has suppression
of events from downstream devices been addressed in the later versions? I
know there was an example in the Redbook for version 4 of Netview, but I
wondering if such functionality has been added to the base product.
