Subject: RE: [NV-L] snmpCollect vs nvcollectord


You cannot integrate (out-of-the-box) NetView SNMP performance data with the Tivoli Data Warehouse if you choose to use the new SNMP collector functionality. So for those wanting to move NetView SNMP  collected data into the TDW, you need to stick with the orginal snmpCollect function.

Please don't mistake the use of a DB2 database by snmpCollect for integration with TDW and the use of a DB2 database for the new SNMP data collection functions. You need a DB2 based RDBMS for both solutions.

Let me also add, there is currently a requirement that the DB2 Server hosting the database that the new SNMP collector functionality uses must reside on the same box as the NetView server. In other words, you cannot use a DB2 Server/Client arrangement with the new SNMP data collector  (its database must be local to NetView).

You do not want to install the DB2 product. If you are not forwarding data to Tivoli Data Warehouse, then you do not need the DB2 product to use the SNMPv1 MIB Collector. <--- snmpCollect only needs a DB2 database if you want to be able to use the NetView "ANM" ETL1 to move SNMP performance data into the TDW

The SNMPv1 MIB Collector (snmpCollect) can forward data to Tivoli Data Warehouse. <--- would need a DB2 based database in this case. Would need to use snmpCollect and not the new SNMP data collector if you wanted to forward data into the TDW.

Does that help ?
