Hi Sudha,
You know - you are now covering the NetView for Unix for Administrators
class - unit 5 topics.  I know this course is offered in India and I
really would recommend that you try and attend it as it will answer so
many of your questions, as well as giving you lots of practical
exercises where you can make mistakes on someone else's kit!!

Failing that, you need to read up on the netmon seedfile and about
location.conf - by default you will find examples in /usr/OV/conf and
they both have lots of commented lines at the top that document their
functionality.

Cheers,
Jane
