Re: HP Openview Slowness.

I use our own monitoring system, and the only complain I just have from 
the 24x7 staff is the absence of the graphic map.

To solve this, I need some package (like 'xfig') allowing me to dray 
graphic map in the vector style, and define some attributes (color, 
blinking, etc) dynamically (defined by the external or embedded script). 
THat's enougph for the middle-size networks.

What's about HPOV and other mosters - good tools for the static networks 
having good resources to execute such big programs. I do not know an 
examples when NOC people are satisfied from this tools (usially they are 
used to draw the map, and mgrt or 'snmpstatd' to build reports and 
graphs).

Btw, see http://noc.bn.ru/~alex/MON/ for an example of 'snmpstatd' output.

Alex.
