SNMP Simulator is a software that would act like a multitude of real physical devices from SNMP Manager's point of view. Simulator builds and uses a database of physical devices' SNMP footprints to respond like their real counterparts do.

Project moved to GitHub:


  • Pure-Python, easy to deploy and highly portable
  • SNMPv1/v2c/v3 support
  • USM supports MD5/SHA auth and DES/AES/3DES/AES256 privacy
  • Runs over IPv4 and/or IPv6 transports
  • Simulates many EngineID's, each with its own set of simulated objects
  • Varies response based on SNMP Community, Context, source/destination addresses and ports
  • Can gather and store snapshots of SNMP Agents for later simulation
  • Can run simulation based on MIB files, snmpwalk and sapwalk output
  • Can gather simulation data from network traffic or tcpdump snoops
  • Can gather simulation data from external program invocation or a SQL database
  • Can trigger SNMP TRAP/INFORMs on SET operations
  • Capable to simultaneously simulate tens of thousands of Agents
  • Easy to extend by Python scripting
  • Also shipped as a stand-alone Windows executable
