SilverCreek SNMP Tester

Demand realistic testing of network-based applications and devices.

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a management protocol used on IP networks for managing and monitoring network devices.

Engineers use the SilverCreek SNMP Test Suite to find and fix bugs and security vulnerabilities in apps and devices before production deployment.

Find more bugs in your SNMP implementation

SilverCreek finds more bugs in your SNMP implementation compared to other testing methods. With SilverCreek, you'll get a complete report on the quality of your SNMP agent implementation. You can then rank, order, and prioritize bug fixing. Devote more time to bug-fixing rather than bug-finding. Assure a higher quality, on-time, confident product deployment.

Software Development Manager, Juniper Networks

"We chose the SilverCreek SNMP tester because the quality of the SNMPv3 tests, the test coverage, and the customer support were far superior to all the other products we evaluated. It was also easily extensible to provide proprietary test coverage. The SilverCreek SNMP test tools allowed us to move from a manual testing process to full SNMP test automation."

Fully automated, fully integrated test suites

Use either a command line interface or graphical user interface for testing. New users begin with the graphical interface; they point and click to run a test and become familiar with SilverCreek, SNMP and test results. All users eventually want to automatically execute the 1000+ tests, recording results, without operator intervention.

SilverCreek supports full automation via the command line interface, as well as integration with other test tools and test harnesses.

  • Developer's Guide with complete documentation on SNMP Libraries, APIs, and sample automation scripts
  • Automatically test multiple SNMP agents concurrently

Easy and extensible SNMP testing

Modify SilverCreek's tests or add more tests for your specific implementation. SilverCreek offers a variety of methods for creating your own tests.

For software engineers and experienced testers, SilverCreek provides the test script source code. You can add, update or modify SilverCreek's test scripts according to your precise needs. For testers unfamiliar with scripting languages and a preference for a graphical tool, SilverCreek offers both a Wizard and Script Generator to create tests. Programming skills are not necessary to get the full benefit from the SilverCreek Test Suite.

The powerful Test Suite Manager simplifies test customization, organization and management.

  • Point & click to automatically run all SilverCreek tests & save results
  • Click on any leaf to launch the SNMP Command tool & view the contents of the agent's object identifier (OID) tree & issue GETs and SETs
  • Combining SNMP GET & NEXT requests on modified object identifiers, the MIB browser quickly & accurately discovers MIB branches more thoroughly than the average MIB walk

Comprehensive SNMP Conformance, Compliance, and Vulnerability Testing

Getting your implementation to conform to the IETF RFCs (standards documents) is one thing, but verifying that the SNMP packet encapsulation is not vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks is equally important. Our vulnerability tests exhaustively test all the ways that SNMP packet encapsulation can be exploited.

SilverCreek's exhaustive and extensive capabilities include test coverage for:

  • Conformance and compliance tests for SNMPv1, v2c, v3, all private and standard MIBs
  • Syntactic tests
  • Semantic (functionality) tests
  • Vulnerability (robustness) tests
  • Load tests (by simulating multiple managers)
  • Performance measurement tests

Functionality Tests include:

  • RMON I and RMON II (RFC-2819 and RFC-2021)
  • SNMPv3 USM-MIB (RFC-3414)
  • SNMPv3 VACM-MIB (RFC-3415)
  • SNMPv3 Apps (RFC-3413)
  • SNMPv3 MPD-MIB (RFC-3412)
  • MIB-II Tests (RFC 1213/2011/2012/2013/2196)
  • IPv6 IP MIB Tests (RFC 4293)
  • IPv6 ipForward MIB Tests (RFC 4292)
  • IPv6 TCP-MIB Tests (RFC 4022)
  • IPv6 UDP-MIB Tests (RFC 4113)
  • DOCSIS Tests (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) (Includes Diffie-Helman SNMPv3 key ignition and keyChange)
