Hi, Reggie.
For about half a year I was fighting exactly the same netmon-symptoms with 
exactly your environment.
>From my experiences you are right:
1) There seems to be a problem (netmon is software and no software is without 
2) Be sure to fine-tune your /usr/OV/conf/ovsnmp.conf (Options - SNMP 
3) Do not "overload" netmon
But there's still hope!
Since installing patch 5.1.1 about 6 weeks ago netmon behaves just fine...
Regards, Ralph.

Betreff:        netmon failing frequently

Hello All

My environment is as follows :- RS6000/F50 , AIX & TME10 NV 5.1.  My
problem is that netmon dies whenever I execute a few demand polls
simultaneously on a few routers. The error message logged into the
netmon.trace file is "Node /Iface or memory allocation error in
allocSnmpState - exiting."

Is this a known problem/bug or is it a case of fine tuning netmon or is it
that the information being received from the routers is too much for netmon
to process.

All assiatnce will be highly appreciated.
