Angelo,


Thanks for submitting your thoughts on an Alert Table management
algorithm with the group.  It's very much appreciated.  Rather
than submit my comments on it now, I'd like to wait to see if
any other PWG participant has some comments to share.


One thing that you wrote, though, is worthy of a (repeated) request
to the PWG at large:


>  The only real issue with this method is

>  since the alert table is usually close to empty.


A related question I had recently posted to the list (but have yet to
receive any replies) is:


  Which vendors are putting entries in the Alert Table that are
  neither Critical nor Non-critical?  And, what are the types and
  volume of such entries?


This follows on a concern raised by Bob Pentecost (HP) in a previous
message along these lines.


Any vendors out there that can respond to this question?  (Please?)


	...jay
