MIMIC simulates 5000 devices managed by EMC Smarts

This post demonstrates how EMC Smarts discovered a large network
simulated by MIMIC SNMP Simulator.

The network consists of 1 Cisco router that connects to 11 other Cisco routers,
each one of them is surrounded with 30 Cisco switches. Then each switch
is connected to Windows 2008 hosts for a total of 4646.

This was a hand created network by Gambit's engineers in MIMIC which took
about 10 minutes to add and start.

Then, in SMARTS, the first router was provided as a seed address with
appropriate discovery filter. It found almost all of the devices in the network
in a little more than one hour.
