There are two ways to do this.   One uses "smconfig", the other uses "APM
- Agent Policy Manager" which is a part of NetView.   Both of these only
exist on NetView running on Unix.    From where you run smconfig, you will
need SNMP access to your MLM.

If you only have a few devices to collect on, then "smconfig" may be the
easiest path for you.   Especially if that group of devices is stable.   In
smconfig you would need to define an "alias" in the "alias table"  (or more
than one) of a group of IP addresses you want to collect from.    Then you
would want to build your collection settings definition and choose that
"alias" as where the collections will get the information..

APM can do similar things and actually configure multiple MLMs at the same
time from NetView.   I recommend that you use smconfig at this time.
