Some time ago, we developed a set of simple SNMP tools. The utilities have a command line interface and are free for non-commercial use. They quickly became popular and are still actively downloaded from our website. Due to the low priority, we do not give enough time to their development, but those software tools require fixes, new features, and detailed documentation.
At the same time, some users have difficulty with the command-line interface. We often get questions about how to use the tools. As a solution, we are considering the possibility of creating Visual SNMP Tools with a straightforward and intuitive graphical interface.
Please answer the question to help us to determine the future of SNMP Tools:
The most popular utility is SnmpWalk.exe. We also consider the option to turn it into a full-fledged software product with a visual interface: SNMP Walker, which would allow you to:
- setup SNMP connection profiles and perform network discovery
- use information from MIB files to describe SNMP variables and values
- generate an interactive HTML file with the walk results
Another idea is SNMP Scripter: a software solution that allows you to create simple scripts containing SNMP GET, SNMP SET, SNMP CREATE ROW, etc. functions. Modern devices support multiple MIB files that contain a lot of modifiable variables. These variables allow configuring equipment or performing some actions. However, a single run of SnmpSet.exe is not enough in many cases. It is often necessary to set several variables or even do multiple read-write operations to perform some action, for example, to back up a device configuration file and check the result code. SNMP Scripter will simplify the creation of such scripts for complex action and execute them on a schedule.
