The CMIP Agent Simulator is a generic Java-based CMIP agent simulator for use in the development and verification of CMIP manager applications. During application development and testing, it is often very difficult to obtain access to an actual CMIP device or 3rd party agent test system for extended periods of time. This can greatly impact delivery and deployment schedules. The CMIP Agent Simulator can help you alleviate this problem by providing a dedicated simulation environment for use by your development and verification teams.


Key Features

Some of the key features of the CMIP Agent Simulator are:

  • 100% Java (JRE 1.2 or greater)
  • supports M-GET, M-SET, M-CREATE and M-DELETE
  • built-in MIT/MIB support for CMIS scoping and filtering
  • built-in support for standard X.721 notification types
  • built-in Event Forwarding Discriminator (EFD) support
  • Management Information Tree (MIT) support
  • default resolution of NAME-BINDINGs for M-CREATE operations
  • supports RFC1006 (CMIP/OSI over TCP/IP)
  • XML configurable agent framework
  • XML based MIB persistence (MOs stored as XML)
  • XML based MIB population
  • extensible to add custom behaviors/M-ACTION support

For examples of configuring and running the agent simulator, please download the DynamicTMN® CMIP Suite evaluation package.
