Setting up SNMP Simulator
The SNMP Simulator software is provided under terms and conditions of BSD-style
license, and can be freely downloaded from
Source Forge download servers or
Latest git snapshots can be downloaded from here.
To use Simulator on a Windows machine, simply download and run
to install pre-compiled binaries and demo data files.
The rest of instructions is mostly applicable to other platforms.
Keep in mind that SNMP Simulator is a
application so make sure you have Python 2.4 ot later (up to 3.3)
installed on your system:
Once you get Python running, you could use
Python package management system which would download and install snmpsim
and all required packages.
Alternatively, you could install Simulator right from the
$ tar zxf snmpsim-X.X.X.tar.gz
$ cd snmpsim-X.X.X
# python setup.py install
# cd ..
# rm -rf package-X.X.X
In the latter case you may need to also install all required Python
packages as well. These are:
Demo data files and stock variation modules will be installed in a
platform-dependent location. Watch installation log for exact location.
You could also put your own SNMP snapshots into your home directory
($HOME/.snmpsim/data) for Simulator to find them there. Watch Simulator
output for hints.
