Take a look at Appendix A in the Linux / Unix Netview Installation guide.

A trap rate of 5/sec falls in the category of Very Large Network. With
an MLM doing some trap supression/throttling your network might be
manageable with the sizing for a Medium sized network.

From Appendix A:
===============================================
A two or four-processor system with 2 GB of memory, one or two disk
drives, 100 MB Ethernet connection, and an appropriate video card.

Example systems:

   * For AIX(R) environments: IBM(R) pSeries(R) 7028 or pSeries 550
with four processors at 1.45 - 1.6 GHz.
   * For Windows(R) and Linux(R) environments: IBM xSeries(R) 365
with four processors at 3.0 GHz or xSeries 366 with four processors at
3.6 GHz.
===============================================

As for Linux/Unix vs Windows, it is my opinion that Linux and Unix are
the only way to go if you want to have any sort of life outside of the
Network Operations Center.

For the experts on this list, FP01 for 7.1.5 is out so are the early
teething problems sorted out?

Hi List,

We have a 2000 node network, spanning nation-wide, media is a mix of ISDN
BRI, Lease Cuircits & VSAT. Approx events/traps per sec would not be more
than 5 per second. Which platform for Netview would you recommend i.e Unix
or Windows and which version 7.1.4 or 7.1.5.

Is there a need of using MLM's in this scenario or can NetView server handle
these traps.


Regards,
Usman
