Hello Everyone,

I am about to install and set up Netview for NT.  We will have <> 2,000
nodes throughout the WAN.
I have one state (and maybe others to come later) where the local
Administrator wants their own copy of Netview for NT and
wants to give me (the Home Office) READ ONLY for their devices.  This has
the potential of having several copies of Netview for NT running
on the WAN.  I see a tremendous amount of uncontrolled SNMP traffic in

I prefer to use MLM with seed files at the state locations and attempt to
manage the SNMP network traffic and nodes through a central set of
configuration files for those states.  I can not see how we can benefit from
threshold, analysis, .etc if we do not use the top-level manager features of

Does anyone see any benefits of using separate copies of Netview running on
the WAN over using MLM?
Has anyone had experience with this same setup?
