How long does it take to double a network of 5,000 devices?

With MIMIC SNMP Simulator it was very easy to double our 5,000
device demo network to 10,000 devices. Starting the devices took 25
minutes, discovery through EMC Smarts took several hours.

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.
