MG-SOFT MIB Browser Professional Edition

SNMP browser for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris


MG-SOFT MIB Browser Professional Edition with MIB Compiler is an extremely flexible, technically superb, powerful and user-friendly SNMP browser. All that makes MG-SOFT MIB Browser the most widely used SNMP browser running on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X or Solaris operating systems.

MIB Browser lets you monitor and manage any SNMP device on the network (i.e., file or database servers, modems, printers, routers, switches,...) by using the standard SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 protocols over IPv4 or IPv6 networks. Along the standard SNMPv3 USM security model, MIB Browser also supports the Diffie-Hellman key exchange model, so that DOCSIS-based SNMPv3 agents (i.e., cable modems, cable modem termination systems, set-top boxes etc.) can be seamlessly contacted and managed.

MIB Browser allows you to perform SNMP Get, SNMP GetNext, SNMP GetBulk and SNMP Set operations. Besides, the software lets you capture the SNMP Trap and SNMP Inform packets that were sent from arbitrary SNMP devices or applications on the network.

MIB Browser can monitor several SNMP devices simultaneously and includes features like SNMP Table viewer, SNMP Table 'editor', logging capabilities, real-time graphical presentation of queried numerical values, scan for implemented MIBs in agents, comparison of SNMP agent snapshots, management of SNMPv3 USM users on remote SNMP agents, etc.

Generic SNMP Trace window displays SNMP messages exchanged between MIB Browser and SNMP agents. SNMP messages are displayed in raw hexadecimal dump format as well as in the decoded, human-readable format. Therefore, the Generic SNMP Trace window is particularly useful for debugging when developing a SNMP agent and for resolving problems when SNMP agents do not properly respond to MIB Browser's queries. The enclosed MIB Compiler lets you compile any vendor specific MIB file. The compiled MIB file can then be loaded and utilized by MIB Browser. Typically, MIB files are supplied by vendors of SNMP manageable devices, and contain description of the manageable object hierarchy and object attributes in the SNMP device. In other words, MIB files serve as a roadmap for managing that device.

MG-SOFT MIB Browser Professional Edition is available for MS Windows operating systems (Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8), for Linux operating systems running on Intel x86 architectures (Red Hat, SuSE, Debian, Ubuntu, Mandriva...), as well as for Apple Mac OS X (universal binaries for both, Intel x86 and PowerPC platforms) and Sun Solaris (binaries available for both, Sun Sparc and Intel x86 platforms).

A customer testimonial
"I am fairly new to SNMP, and I purchased your MIB Browser at the recommendation of other engineers in my company that implement SNMP in our products. I have found the MIB Browser VERY intuitive and easy to use, and it has greatly aided my understanding of SNMP as a whole. I have mainly used it as a self-training tool to learn about SNMP in general, but also how our own products use SNMP.

You guys are geniuses! I deleted the registry key for the MIB Compiler, and tried it again. This time it worked great. It now stores my settings when I shut the program down. Don't know why it didn't work before, unless there was something "left over" in the registry from when I ran the evaluation copy of the MIB Compiler (before I purchased the product).

Thanks again for your help. I have to say that I am highly impressed with the level and quality of support I am receiving from MG-SOFT. It is unfortunate that you don't see much of those qualities any more... but you guys are the exception!"
