About MIB Smithy

MIB Smithy is Windows and Unix software product for SNMP developers, MIB designers and internet-draft authors. The tool accelerates the development process by providing an easy to use GUI-based environment for designing and describing an SNMP MIB specification without worrying about particular SMI syntax and formatting concerns in the process. It includes various document conversion capabilities for compiling MIBs according to a preferred specification, with native support for some of the more popular file formats, as well as for converting between SMI versions.

What's New

MIB Smithy 4.0 is a major release with significant improvements in GUI look and feel, new features in the SNMP Tools, and usability improvements. The new feature we're most excited about is the new compiler log. In this release, MIB Smithy breaks away from the traditional text-only log with a more task-oriented tabular design that's more concise, has better visual cues to distinguish errors from warnings and between record types, and can be sorted to help you fix problems in the order that's right for you. We look forward to even more workflow improvements under development for a future release.
