Re: [nv-l] Generating Topology Map with MLMs
IS the discovery procedure of MLM is
same as of netview. if it is so then we can define routes on the router
etc. why do we need to put a seperate MLM for each network. and how will
they all send info to a netview which is in a different network?

NetView can display maps that contain nodes discovered
by an MLM.
However, the MLM itself gives you no display capability. An MLM can
also only discover nodes on it's own IP network so if your client has a
single network then the MLM discovery should work fine but if he has
more than one network then you will need an MLM per network.
If there are firewalls between you and your customer, you need both ping
and SNMP access through the firewall. Although MLM can discover
networks, NetView only "believes" info from MLM when he has got
one ping though to an MLM-discovered node.
I think people have tried putting more than one NIC card in an MLM to
monitor several networks but my impression is that no-one has got this
to work reliably - not tried it personally.
