Overview
Tivoli Netcool/Proviso supports the following two types of technology packs, based on the type of data that they
collect:
SNMP
SNMP packs are MIB-based, and their configuration is relatively straightforward.
Bulk (or UBA)
Bulk technology packs collect data against non-SNMP devices, and rely on the UBA of the Tivoli
Netcool/Proviso DataChannel to process the data. Prior to Tivoli Netcool/Proviso version 4.4.3, bulk packs
could be very difficult to configure, and in many cases required extensive Tivoli Netcool/Proviso domain
knowledge.
Tivoli Netcool/Proviso version 4.4.3 introduces a GUI to configure Tivoli Netcool/Proviso UBA
technology packs on supported Tivoli Netcool/Proviso platforms.
The Cisco IP Telephony Technology Pack is an SNMP and UBA technology pack.
Before you begin

Have the following software and documentation for your version of Tivoli Netcool/Proviso:
