Thanks for the info!  The reason I asked the question to the NetView list is because I know the experience of the members.  I was hoping that someone had previously compared these products.  I'm a big NetView supporter and I'm looking for a way to set it apart from Spectrum.  However, both products seem very similar.  It is making my task a little bit more difficult (especially when it comes to SNMP V3!!!)
Thanks again,

Hi, Scott
Your question is very interesting in a Netview list !!
In a simple manner, Spectrum is a tool with many functions ready out-of-the-box. I would say that if you don´t have necessity of customization this is the tool. It allows hierarchicle structrure with many servers. The only negative point, in my opinion, is the proprietary database. Some years ago there was a integration between it and T/EC, now you will have to ask. Spectrum has the Event Manager, something that is light-years ahead ControlDesk, but Netview has RuleSets that allows you to treat all kind of snmp traps and automatize some rotines. Netview can be managed by scripts, Spectrum no.
I think Spectrum has a weak integration with anothers management tools and the web interface was provided by third part software.
Actually, I don´t know how it´s comercialized. I think it´s good to contact the vendors and ask them.
I hope this information was usefull.

Hi listers,


Has anyone out there compared NetView with Spectrum?  I'm wondering what the major differences are between the two products.  (i.e., What does Spectrum provide that NetView doesn't, etc...)
