Hello, tivoli:

IBM does not support TDS any more as far as I know. But IBM provide another 
solution for business inteligence. It is Tivoli Data Warehouse. For Netview, 
there is a Netview Warehouse Enablement Pack, which will enable NV and TDW work 
together. But it doesn't work as well as they say on windows 2000 according to 
my experience. And really, You need to do a lot of research and find out how to 
moidify the sql script which is responsible for OLAP. I know it can be done, 
but unfortunately, I don't know how.

Even if you have accomplish all the modification and configuration, Tivoli Data 
Warehouse can only provide 8 or 9 reports about the avaiabitily for netwrok 
nodes. It is far away from enough. You know, for TIVOLI Mornitoring, there are 
more than 200 kinds of report or graphs avaiable, you don't really have to 
worry about this there. But, on windows 2000, for netview 7.1.3, things are 
totally on the other side of coin.

You are right, it is more like a vicious circle. For my case, the biggest 
problem is the data collected by netview on windows 2000. As you know, 
snmpcollect can not collect enough data to be grahped.

Have you tried snmpcollect on Linux? Does it work fine for data collecting? I 
am considering migrate my netview from Windows 2000 to Linux, because of Data 
collecting limitation on windows 2000.
