NetView Mid Level Manager.   It's a component of NetView that one can
use to improve the scalability of a single netview server.  MLM's can
be configured to be trap receivers/filterers  and then forward the
ones you want on to the NetView server.  You can also distribute the
job of pinging out to the MLM's.  

For instance if you have a central netview server and are monitoring a
bunch of remote sites, you could put MLM's in each remote site to
serve as trap receivers there, do some trap filtering and only send up
the stuff you care about to the main NetView server. 

There's a separate manual in the Tivoli netview set that discussed

A few things to check: 
Does anything show up in /usr/OV/log/trapd.log?  
Does anything show up in the OS's incoming trap log? (OS dependent)
Have you defined the SNMPv2 trap correctly using the addtrap command?  
Have you used a sniffer program like tcpdump to see if hte server is
actually receiving the trap?   (assuming UNIX).
