HP has come into the messed up, half functional NNM 7.53 implementation we have and proposed some major changes to fix the issues which are plaguing us. The propose to move us to APA polling, but we need to also implement CDP consistently. I am already getting a lot of flack for wanting to implement CDP. Aside from this project knowing when we have duplex mismatches, which you can imagine we get a lot of would be nice for operations J
We saw some nice future direction regarding Opsware product, which we already use, but that's as far as I'm going to go! NNM 8 looks to be a very nice product; it's a matter of us waiting for some SPIs and a bit more maturity. I hope that it has it by late this year.
