How beefy do you need it to be?
        1)  Ground Chuck
        2)  Surloin
        3)  T-Bone
        4)  Porter-House

I have a "surloin" development system  (P3 500 MHz, 384 Meg memory).
I can probably manage a couple of thousand interfaes (ping-status)... and
some perl routines for some correlation.  I don't typically do
and storage though, so I can't help you there.

Perl tends to run REAL fast on NT though.  Now if they'd just support all
the functions.

I once took a small T-Bone (2-processor 450 MHz, 512MB memory) system, and
managed 12000 nodes at one of our sites  (20 minute ping interval).  It
was starting to head out to pasture though... at about 10,000 nodes.
Haven't done much benchmarking lately though.

Hope this helps.

Have a nice weekend.

I just wanted to verify (as I have only run NetView on AIX) that a server

Netfinity 8500
2 700 zeon processors
2.5gig memory

would be a nice and beefy box to run NetView on.  My guess is yes and then
some, but this is NT, so you never know...
