You may want to closely check the values that MLM is returning for the MIB
objects. Years ago we attempted to do MLM data collection and thresholding,
but found that MLM does not apply the same delta calculations to COUNTER
MIBs that NetView does. I would recommend setting up a simple collection on
a MIB object (instead of an expression) from both NetView and MLM and
compare the results.

I have NetView server 5.1.2 running on Solaris 2.6 O/S. Here
I am trying to do using Agent Policy Manager.
Using threshold and Collection policy, obtain bandwidth
on CISCO 8540 switch/router. Following is the formula
((.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.10.*) *8 *100)/.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.1.5.*
This is the router with full duplex configuration. I am
strange utilization results ( like 325%, 137% ), which is not true.
If I use xnmcollect from NetView, results are OK. I have
@delta function eventhough by default all counter MIB variables are
converted into integer and when query these variables it should give
