RE: NetView: AIX vs. NT
1) NV NT does have a web-interface. In V6.0 it comes with its own.
Its quite automatic. In V5.x you used IIS.
2) Paging built-in. Yes, I believe its the same as AIX.
3) Scripting language. I use Perl. If you have UNIX-types who might
have to use this... I'd also suggest MKS toolkit (a Unix toolkit
for NT). Not sure I'd survive without MKS.
MKS Shell = sh.exe I don't know if it supports ksh.
Check URL for details: http://www.mks.com/press/releases/981109a.htm
4) NetView NT will use the JET (aka Access) DB unless you have SQL
installed. JET is included with NT (you don't have to buy Access).

Subject: [NV-L] NetView: AIX vs. NT
We are considering purchasing NetView for NT for on of our smaller sites. We
already have NetView for AIX.
I was wondering if someone could clarify some of the differences between the
1. Does NetView for NT also have a Web Interface? If so, does it use the
Apache Web server like AIX does?
2. Does NetView for NT have a built-in paging ability, like NetView for AIX
3. What is the scripting language of choice for NT, i.e. I use Korn Shell
scripting with AIX. Would it be Pearl?
4. Does a SQL database come with NetView for NT? Nothing comes with AIX.
Any info appreciated.
