MIB Smithy SDK

MIB Smithy SDK is a dynamic extension to Tcl/Tk (8.4+) that allows development of custom scripts for controlling SNMP agents, manipulating SMI definitions, doing conversions, and more. It is based on the core of Muonics' MIB Smithy, and the SDK supports SMIv1 and SMIv2, as well as SNMPv1/v2c/v3 with HMAC-SHA-96 and HMAC-MD5-96 authentication and DES/CBC and AES128/CFB privacy. It also provides complete read-write access to all elements of SMI/MIB Module definitions, unlike similar extensions that provide only read access to a limited subset. The SDK allows multiple discrete SMI databases and SNMP sessions, and provides all of the built-in validation and error recovery capabilites of the full product, without the visual MIB development environment.

            Moodss Integration
            MIB Smithy SDK is integrated with Moodss versions 17.3 and later (also listed here on freshmeat) as an alternative to the Scotty-based SNMP module. Using MIB Smithy SDK in place of Scotty provides full SNMPv3 support with authentication and privacy and compatibility with modern Tcl versions.
