SNMP agent simulator
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.
Typical use case for this software starts with recording a snapshot of SNMP objects of donor agents into text files. Once you have your snapshots at hand, a simulator script could be run over the snapshots responding to SNMP queries in the same way as donor SNMP agents did at the time of recording.
Technically, SNMP Simulator is a multi-context SNMP agent. That means that it handles multiple sets of managed object all at once. Each device is simulated within a dedicated SNMP context.
