SimpleMIBBrowser for NTCIP™
An Intuitive SNMP MIB Browser, Plotter and Trap Receiver
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used extensively in
managing today's heterogeneous networks. Networking equipment from most
vendors include an SNMP Agent that allows remote retrieval and configuration
of its management data. This management data is defined in Management
Information Base (MIB) files.
SimpleMIBBrowser is an easy-to-use application that supports all versions
of SNMP (v1, v2c, v3) and can be used to communicate with any SNMP enabled device. It can
load device specific MIB files and display the management data contained within it as a
graphical tree for easy navigation. SimpleMIBBrowser can then send SNMP requests of all
types to retrieve and configure the management data of interest from the SNMP enabled
SimpleMIBBrowser for NTCIP provides the same features as the standard
version of the application with the added capability of communicating over a
serial connection using PMPP as specified by the National
Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP).
Performance management data can also be retrieved and plotted by conducting
periodic polling. Fault management information can be received using the
SNMP Trap/inform mechanisms. Configuration data retrieved from one device,
or manually created, can be stored and propogated on to other devices that
need to be set up in a similar manner. Debug tracing of requests and responses
also make it useful for trouble shooting and resolving communication problems.
The ITS Protocol support gives the user the flexibility of communicating
over either ethernet or a serial connection. The serial
parameters and the PMPP parameters are fully configurable.
SimpleMIBBrowser is an intuitive, graphical tool that can be used to query
and configure management information from any SNMP enabled device. Its various
