I noticed a few changes in the MLM behaviour when moving my monitoring
functions to the MLM that comes with Netview 5.1.1

Most of these changes I've worked around, but this one seems to have me.

I have been in the habit of setting a threshold so that if sysUptime is less
than the polling interval of the MLM, page me, as it means that the SNMP agent

it is not an object of type integer, guage or counter, and wont do the

Anyway around this, or is it a case for support?
