NetView documentation specifically recommends against  putting other
heavily used applications on the same box as NetView.  A web server and an
SQL server on the same box as NetView?  You must be joking.  You are just
asking for
unsolvable performance problems.  80 - 100K objects would put you in the
top 1% of NetView customers as far as size goes.  I think you are already
pushing the performance envelope with that.

Perhaps other large users could respond.

We have installed NV V5 and the full Nways suite a couple of times now
on 43P 240's, with 768 Mb of RAM and 4.5Gb of disk.  So far we have
small NetView databases - <1000 nodes.  We have cut down the AIX install
and have ~ 1Gb of disk free but for your size database, I would put in
more than 4.5Gb.  With 768Mb of RAM we are not seeing any significant
paging but again, you have a much bigger database.  The usual planning
info on NetView sizing should apply - the Install Guide formula sez:
 Server mem in Mb = (42 + 5.6 * Kobjects) + GUIOps * (12 + 2.5 *
 for 80K objects and 1 GUI, I make that 702Mb just for NetView (whereas
our value for, say 1000 nodes or 3K IP objects would be 78.3Mb).  That
would give you a huge memory requirement!  Don't forget to allow double
RAM for your pagespace disk.

I believe ReMon has it's own database structure .
