MIMIC SNMP Agent Simulator creates a network of up to100,000 SNMP manageable devices. You can create any SNMP based device with any number of public or private MIBs to run a large variety of device configurations with your SNMP management application. It lets you generate thousands of traps to simulate disaster scenarios.

MIMIC Features

1. Multiple Agents in One Box

  • Family of SNMP simulators with a variety of sizes geared to any budget.
  • Simulate up to 100,000 SNMP agent instances on one computer.
  • Each agent instance has its own IP (or IPv6) addresses on any subnet.
  • Each SNMPv1 agent has independent read and write SNMP community strings.
  • Each SNMPv3 agent has independent USM and VACM parameters. (MD5, SHA, SHA-2 / RFC 7860 Authentication, DES, AES, AES-192, AES-256 Privacy).
  • Each agent instance has its own notion of uptime, eg. one can be running for 100 days, while another has just started.

2. Customized SNMP Simulation

  • Select any subset of supported MIBs for each agent instance.
  • Use any of the 2000+ pre-compiled MIBs for devices from the leading networking companies.
  • Run any mix of the supplied actual device simulations from the device library, among them are Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, HP, Marconi, 3Com and many more.
  • Build your own SNMP simulation with the topologies and devices you need.

3. SNMP Agent Instance Configuration

  • Configure each SNMP agent instance individually or collectively.
  • Control each MIB object instance of each SNMP agent instance independently or as relationships.

4. Extensible Environment

  • Add any MIB to the SNMP simulation by compiling it with the MIMIC Compiler
  • Create basic simulations of actual devices with the MIMIC Recorder
  • Extend the simulation with standard scripting languages.
  • Customize the simulations with a powerful simulation language.

5. Real-time Modifiable Simulations

  • Use the MIB browser to manipulate each MIB object simulation independently at run-time.
  • Configure the simulation via batch scripts for automated regression testing or hands-off product demonstration.
  • Pause simulations to investigate a particular problem and resume at any point in time.

6. Configurable SNMP Trap Generation

  • Configure arrival rate, cutoff time, variable values, etc. on a per Trap basis in real-time and generate Trap storms.
  • Take snapshots with the Trap Wizard to replicate exact Trap sequences.

7. Recording Environment

  • Take snapshots of real world scenarios and simulate them almost immediately.
  • Discover large networks with Discovery Wizard.
  • Create dynamic simulations over time with Snapshot Wizard.
