Re: Netview on SUN Platform
Are you sure all the other apps you want to run are available on SUN?
I don't think they are. Even then there is NO ADVANTAGE from a NetView
perspective in getting off AIX and going to SUN. Sounds like a lot of work
for little advantage to me.

Subject: Netview on SUN Platform
A decision has been made at our location to switch from IBM/AIX to
for our network management system. We currently have AIX 4.2, Netview
CiscoWorks 4.0, CWSI 1.3 and Optivity 8.1. We also plan to run Cisco
Manager and Netsys. We may also want to run MRTG graphs for about 50
with multiple interfaces. We currently manage approximately 15,000 objects
expectations to grow moderately and to stay up to date with current
releases, such as moving to Netview 5.1.
My research on the appropriate or best server has been inconclusive. We
like a server attached graphics console which does not appear to be an
the Ultra Enterprise 450. It would be to my benefit to order a server to
short range future growth rather than go back to my manager a year from now
request an upgrade, therefore I'm not looking for a minimal configuration,
rather a robust solution.
SUN hardware recommendations and options, such as amount of memory, would
greatly appreciated, particularly from anyone in an environment similar to
one we anticipate in the near future.
