MIB Smithy

MIB Smithy is an application for SNMP and COPS developers, MIB and PIB designers, and Internet-draft authors. It provides a GUI-based environment for designing, editing, and compiling MIB and PIB modules according to the SMIv1, SMIv2, and COPS-PR-SPPI standards. It accelerates the development process by providing an easy-to-use GUI-based environment for developing the specifications without the syntax and formatting concerns of editing the modules by hand. It includes a number of built-in basic SNMP management tools, XML support, and (with MIB Smithy Professional) support for custom compiler output formats.

    Release Notes: Storage for user preferences was changed from an INI file format or Windows Registry to XML, with more properties saved (such as SNMPv3 trap listener configuration). The Project File format was also changed to XML to support future enhancements. Support for MIB Views saved agent configurations and for specifying SNMPv3 auth/priv keys (localized or unlocalized) instead of passwords was added to built-in SNMP tools. Support for editing MODULE-CONFORMANCE (RFC 1303) and converting to AGENT-CAPABILITIES was added. Minor bugs were fixed.

        Release Notes: Changes in MIB Smithy SDK 4.0 were incorporated into this release, including IPv6 support, a username-based licensing option, Linux x86_64 support, and many MIB validation improvements.

            Getting support for additional platforms.
            Muonics welcomes inquiries from parties interested in support for additional platforms. We have our eyes on Mac OS X in particular. Our code is highly portable, so implementation is not generally an issue: only sufficient interest to recouperate new equipment costs (or trade arrangements).
