Tremors in your network

Afraid of tremors in your network? Just like earthquakes in the real world, network disruptions will have serious impact on your business. Test your network management for network earthquakes like in the real world.

The UCSD earthquake simulator has been in the news lately.  Just like an earthquake simulator lets you prepare for the worst earth tremors, MIMIC Simulator lets you prepare for the worst tremors in your network.

By allowing you to "shake" a simulation of your network elements, you can cost-effectively devise responses to outages. MIMIC SNMP Simulator can be quickly programmed to create disaster scenarios to gauge your management systems' response.

MIMIC Simulator verifies high frequency polling

High frequency polling matters for network performance management in financial services for SevOne.
Ensure that your management environment supports high frequency polling by testing against MIMIC Simulator.

MIMIC can simulate thousands of SNMP, NetFlow and sFlow based devices, and supports upwards of 25,000 requests per second on a common PC platform and thousands of flows per second. Cisco, SevOne, Lancope and many other NetFlow based management vendors use MIMIC for testing their applications.
