Hi Scott,

You buy the SNMP Security Pack for NetView from SNMP Research.

No vendor today - aside possibly from Microsoft - would claim to have products to meet all of its customers' requirements. Hence the major vendors have Partner Developer Programs under which they encourage Independent Software Vendors - like SNMP Research and us - to develop and market complementary products to fill gaps.   

As I said, I am only addressing  one point in your posting - support for SNMPv3.

That SNMPv3 support is via a purchased product? Or is that add-on free? I'm not sure I consider that part of NetView. I was aware of that package.

Hi Scott,

Just on one of your points....

If it takes 18 months to get a fairly simple change (from a feature point of view) to the "review" stage, then how long will it take for support for SNMPv3?
I believe SNMPv3 is provided for NetView by the SNMP Security Pack add-on from SNMP Research.

And, while I don't speak for IBM, this may be related to what you said later......
Look, we all understand that IBM generally gives software away at very reasonable prices and earns their revenues based on service contracts.
