Yup - MLM is now a no-charge feature of NV V5 - you get the code for all
supported MLM platforms (and I hear that the NT MLM is now LOTS better).

I believe so - as ever, it depends on how much work you are going to
have your MLM doing, as to whether it performs....

According to the installation guide, for NetView Server you need an
RS/6000 43P, E20 or better, 128Mb minimum RAM, 160Mb in /usr/OV minimum
and 256Mb swap. AIX seems to be OK anywhere from 3.2.5 upto 4.2.1 - I
know there was a problem with AIX 4.3 (not sure whether it is fixed
yet). NetView 5.1 s not currently out but is expected as a refresh in
the next couple of weeks.
