Subject:  [NV-L] MLM questions


I am learning to use MLM, I read the MLM user guide and did some config,
I am quite confused about the following:

I have one MLM installed and monitored by a main Netview box.

- I took off the polling from Netview box to MLM, if something managed by
MLM is down, MLM will automatically send a trap to the main Netview box?

> Yes.

- In the main Netview box, I would not be able to see any nodes on maps
managed by MLM, am I right?

> No. Just the opposite.  All nodes managed by MLM will be shown on the
NetView map.
> That's what it is for -- to extend the range of Netview, not limit it.
> If you want nodes exlcuded, you need to exclude them via the seedfile.

- I clicked on the MLM on the NV box, Monitor -> MLM -> status monitoring
current status. I have a unknown status for one node. I don't understand

> You'll have to figure that one out by looking at the logs in

- what the hack is the Alias table for? Does it have to have NV.x.x.x.n

> Click on them to resolve them.  You will see that they are groups of
nodes/interfaces that Netview
> already knows about.  That's why they start with NV.

Thanks for your help.
