NetView proper does not install anything into /var by default, so you'll
have to tell us what you have done.  MLM, however, does install into
/var/adm and he does keep data and logs there.   Are you running out of
filesystem space?  Then allocate more, or keep less data.  You might also
examine your ovwdb cache size (the -n parameter you can see with "ps -ef |
grep ovwdb" )   and verify that it is at least 20 per cent greater than the
count of objects in your database.  You can check that count with
"ovobjprint -S".  It's the first thing it tells you.

NV 7.1.4 AIX 5.2

Via support calls I picked up on the idea that when /var increases in size
to about 80%, netview starts having problems.  This seems to be true as I
have seen netview have miscelaneous problems and sure enough /var has grown
to over 80%, the magic number.  When the AIX admins add and/or clear space
netview immediately and noticeabley functions better, faster (we're running
off the server via Hummingbird Exceed X-windows).  Does anyone have an
understanding of what's going on with this? Or do you know of some docs on
this subject?

Thank you!
