SNMP v1,v2c,v3 Forwarder Utility
This utility is designed to resolve real time issues when multiple SNMP requests
are sent from the command generator(s) (managers) to an SNMP command responder (agent)
and the responses are sent back accordingly. The SNMP Forwarder utility acts as a proxy agent
by receiving request from manager application(s) and forwarding them to the
specified SNMP agent. The replies from that agent are also forwarder back to
the command generator (manager).
Neither command generator's nor command responder's behaviour changes by introducing
the SNMP Forwarder utility sitting in between the entities. Therefore, debugging using the
SNMP Forwarder utility does not disturb communicatoins between command generators and
Typical examples where the SNMP Forwarder utility would be extremely useful are:
- debugging sparse table retrieval,
- debugging SNMPv3 engine ID discovery,
- debugging MIB traversing etc.
SNMP Forwarder utility supports SNMP v1,v2c and V3. The SNMPv3 messages can be
authenticated and decoded on the fly using SNMPv3 security parameters. The SNMP message
trace can be saved to disk and subsequently loaded for off-line viewing. The SNMP
message trace can be also exported to a text file.
