NetView/PC™ is an IBM program offering that provides the first implementation of a Systems Network Architecture (SNA) service point on an IBM Personal Computer. It allows integration of non-SNA devices such as computerized branch exchanges or Token Ring local-area networks into a central SNA network management facility by forwarding Alert information from these devices to a host-based network management product such as NetView™. It also provides some focal point services, including logging and display of Alerts and problem creation and tracking. Non-IBM products may use NetView/PC services via a vendor application programming interface (API).
