Significant Features of SNMP Simulation

An #SNMP or also called simple network management protocol is a protocol that is used for managing network devices. It is a standard protocol that is specifically designed for network management. There are several devices that work with or support SNMP. Some of the chief examples are switches, modems, servers, routers, printers as well as work stations. SNMP is chiefly used by network managers to monitor the status of devices that are connected to a specific network. The network managers generally monitor the situations that may need the attention of administration.


The SNMP Simulator was particularly built to help test network managers instead of using a large number of SNMP based devices just for testing. From manager's point of view, SNMP Simulator is a lab filled with a huge number of real physical devices.

The concept behind SNMP simulation is that SNMP MIBs could be replicated. The data supported on MIB objects could be changed as needed, therefore representing a device. The whole network can be simulated in a PC and the simulation can be available on the network, so users can easily connect to those over the network.

When faced with an option of a rock or a hard place, SNMP simulation can be used in numerous areas across device vendor companies. It is mainly effective in controlling expenses in network management software development while helping move hardware to the shipping/income phase rapidly.

SNMP agents:

The SNMP Agent Simulator is an application that runs on a device to provide its status and configurations. The agent collect the management info database from the device and makes it available to the manager, when its asked for. These agents could be exact or standard to a producer.

Main functions of SNMP agent:

Collects management info associated to its device
Stores and get back management info as defined in the Management Information Base (MIB)
Acts as an interface for several non-SNMP manageable network node
Send out events happening to the manager


With MIMIC SNMP Simulator ability to provide thousands of simulated devices, users can achieve real-life experience in working with various networks and completely understand the abilities and features of the management applications. Also MIMIC can be used to practice network management and examine techniques, troubleshooting the issues that customers are facing in the real world.

By using MIMIC SNMP simulation for employee training, organizations find out that their lab expenditures have significantly decreased. Prices of 3rd party products and also their support and repairs cost cut down to a least. Administration costs of the lab, comprising the whole set-up in addition to break down amid classes are reduced significantly. With its capability to cut-down hardware cost, to be able to plan the training before the device is available, and reduce training lab management, MIMIC SNMP Simulator is a well designed solution in nowadays worker training program.

Stimulating Network Devices Using SNMP Simulator

The explosive development of mobile data services has enforced greater demands around the wireless back-haul systems. Network Management has additionally become complex because of the character of packet-based transmission and also the resiliency and versatility options that come with packet systems.

A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Simulator is a kind of a networking device simulation used to produce a large virtual network. The simulator functions as an interface of the system for any Network Management Software. It differs from network emulators which models the behavior of the network.

The SNMP simulator works as interlink. Take one particular flight simulator which enables an airplane pilot to think he's flying an airplane the Simulator works exactly the same way. It fools network programs into thinking it's speaking with the SNMP protocol to real products. These kinds of simulators have a lot of uses including development, support, testing, and training.


If you are an IT personnel, and you're searching to construct a replica of the production network without purchasing additional hardware, SNMP Simulator is the solution. For individuals who're evaluating network management programs, SNMP simulation can help. You will find tools that can handle replicating multiple SNMP agents on one host. Simulator makes it easy to record the production network and duplicate it. That simulated network then could be modified or increased when needed.

When you're searching to simulate a network utilizing a Network Simulator, the initial step is to determine the system needs. SNMP Agent Simulator needs a 32 and 64 bit Windows or Linux distributions like Fedora, SuSE, RedHat and Debian etc. More Processor chips, memory and disk space you've better the performance you're going to get. Then stick to simple installation steps and you're prepared to get started.

Create a Virtual Lab on Your Own Using a Simulator

From past few years science has achieved new heights by many new inventions and discoveries. Not only science every sector has faced this technological advancements due to digitalization of everything. Computers have become an essential machine used for various purposes. Now-a-days almost everyone use computers for different works. Slowly everything is getting digitalized like money transfer, e-shopping, online payment, etc.


People have adopted these new technologies and use them in their day to day life. Communications systems have also developed and people can easily interact with each other. Social media sites like Facebook, twitter, Google+ are also used by most of the people. Facilities like video calling has made it easy for the people interact with the people.

Various simulators available for your use:

Today even different virtual equipments are available for you to use. There are certain things which aren’t meant to be used by everyone, instead there are some tools and virtual software called simulator by which you can run these equipments. A simulator is nothing but the imitation of the real operations or systems and it works as the original one. There are many companies which provide such types of tools and simulators and are available for the public and anyone can use these tools. Gambit Communications is one such company which helps you to create a large virtual lab of your own.

Gambit communications provides variety of tools and simulating software designed for various purposes. They provide various management software like MIMIC Simulator suite, MIMIC virtual lab, SNMP Simulator, NetFlow/sFlow simulation etc. Cisco IOS Simulator is also available here which can be used in different platforms Windows, Linux, Cloud, etc. It is mostly used to test your network app during the development process and you can find any major problems during your app’s testing

All about SNMP:

SNMP also known as simple network management protocol, is a protocol for management system. also It uses used to TCP/IP based networks. SNMP simulator is used for testing managers against a large number of agents that represent a potentially a very large network populated with different kind of SNMP capable devices. As SNMP is important tool for monitoring, it is essential to have a SNMP Test to check whether the SNMP system is working correctly or not. Testing software can be installed on your computers to test whether the NMS application is working correctly or not. Gambit communication provides you the complete solution to test all types of problems.

SNMP also provides ability to send alarms which are called SNMP Traps, to advise an administrator when one or more conditions have been met. These traps are the network packets that contain data relating to the device where the condition has occurred.. These traps are alerts generated by agents on managed device, there are 5 types of data generated by the traps.

The different software are available online in the company’s website from where you can download them and install on your computer and do your respective testing or training. If you face any kind of problem regarding these software then you can directly contact the company. They are know of their responsive technical support.
