MIMIC Simulator integrated with Telegraf OSS monitoring application

What better way to quickly develop / test / prototype Telegraf deployments
than with simulated data? MIMIC Simulator delivers the dynamic,
customizable, scalable data for the variety of Telegraf input plugins.

To exercise SNMP interoperability, for this experiment we graph real-time
interface statistics from a simulated Cisco ASR 9000  router.

The graph in Grafana shows ifInOctets SNMP data collected from the MIMIC
simulated Cisco ASR 9000. The data is collected by the Telegraf application
using the SNMP plugin, and output to InfluxDB. Grafana is showing the data
using the InfluxDB as data source.

The Telegraf, InfluxDB and Grafana setup was done using this link:
