Re: status polling
SNMP requests are not done in response to failing polls. SNMP requests are
done for new node discovery and config check.
Polling is done at the interface level. When a poll for an interface times
out, and all retries are exhausted without a response, you should see an
Interface down trap for that interface. If the box still has other
interfaces which are up, you should see a Node Marginal trap. When all
interfaces on the box are down, you should see a Node Down trap.

Subject: status polling
When netview polls a device for status and does not get a response what
Does netview then generate a trap or
does it send an snmp request to the device?
I guess what I'm trying find out is let's say there is a router that is
completely out and netview does a status poll but receives no response, is
netview going to generate an interface down trap or something more
