with 900 nodes in a local hosts file it is likely you are experiencing high CPU? You have a dual CPU box, do you have tools that will show how the CPU usage is on each? If you are total at 50%, could that mean that netmon is pegged one of the CPUs? In the past I did this on a NetView server on a 4-way. When I switched from a large hosts file to a caching DNS configuration my netmon CPU usage went from 100% (of a single CPU) down to 6%.

I suggest you build a DNS on your Windows machine or one on the same subnet and get rid of your hosts file. Having DNS co-exist on your NetView server is the best.
