MIMIC SNMP Simulator 14.00

Tab navigation

MIMIC simulated devices respond to SNMPv1, SNMPv2C, SNMPv3, NetFlow/sFlow/IPFIX protocols. MIMIC includes a large number of pre-compiled MIBs, networks and devices from the leading networking companies. Along with that a suite of predefined scenarios is provided to investigate all the possibilities you can face in your mission-critical environment.

For example, realistic behavior can be modeled for a range of traffic conditions over a shorter period of time. Or, a constant simulation can be used for automated regression testing.

The MIMIC Recorder can be used to record any existing production or lab network and simulate it. It then can be duplicated many times.

The most common uses of this versatile suite are:

  • Evaluation: Enterprises can evaluate the new version of IBM Tivoli with anticipated failure and growth scenarios or qualify purchases before deployment.
  • Training Environments: Enterprises can train new staff on Tivoli on routine and disastrous conditions without disturbing the production network.
  • Development and Testing: Configuration and additional development on Tivoli can be done quickly and test reliably by network engineers.
  • Trade Shows: Marketing can setup powerful "live" demonstrations at trade shows.
  • Sales Demos: Sales can tailor presentations to the individual customer's environment.

    • Evaluation: Enterprises can evaluate the suitability of applications with anticipated failure and growth scenarios or qualify purchases before deployment
    • Training: Realistic training scenarios can explore all possible routine and disastrous cases. Also create a portable labs.
    • Development and Testing: Management application developers can implement their products quickly & test reliably
    • Trade Shows: Marketing can setup powerful "live" demos at trade shows
    • Sales Demos: Sales can tailor presentations to the individual customer's environment

  • + Business problem

    It provides the cost savings a factor of up to 1,000.

  • + Business opportunity

    Immediate Cost Savings: * No need to buy extra laboratory equipment (hardware, agents, software). The cost factor of lab equipment is reduced by a factor of up to 1,000. * Leverage existing laboratory equipment by running MIMIC alongside the real device. Instead of buying ten of the same devices, buy one real device and simulate the remaining nine. * Reduced support costs for test equipment. Rather than supporting different types of devices, it is only necessary to support MIMIC on industry-standard hardware (Intel-based PCs or Sun Sparc). * Time savings dramatically impact labor costs, especially early in the development cycle. MIMIC can be employed in the prototyping and design stages. It only took us minutes to setup the simulations used to demo the Applications on this site. * Allows instantaneous hypothetical growth scenarios with minimal additional expense. Time can be fast-forwarded in MIMIC with a few mouse-clicks and keystrokes. Agents can easily be cloned. This helps in realistic future resource planning * Reduced Setups and Maintenance: * No need for multiple network connections, power supplies, etc. Physical lab space and infrastructure requirements are reduced 100-fold. * No need to set up WAN links. MIMIC simulates network delay and runs with most network interface cards. It even runs over PPP on a serial line. * Complete Evaluation & Testing: * Test management applications with a wide variety of agents instead of just one. * Test multiple versions of each device simultaneously. * Configure pathological conditions easily in order to investigate even the trickiest configurations. * Reliable Test Environment

  • + Competitive advantage

    The real test labs are very expensive. They need a smaller replica of the production network with various vendor devices. Those need a large space, power and colling. Those can make it very costly. Labs need network engineers for setup and maintenance. These labs are shared most of the time which means that they need to be managed for sharing conflicts.

    Simulation is a better alternative. You can get MIMIC Simulator at a fraction of the price, there is no need to worry about connections or wrong setup and can save multiple test configurations so it's easy to test all scenarios for every new change or release.
