We have the need to develop some certifications (both vendor certifications and metric families).
Is there any visual MIB tool that can help speed up the development?
If you are looking for a freeware mib browser, I have used ireasoning in the past. It works pretty well:
Network Management / Network Monitoring / SNMP Monitoring / MIB Browser
If you are attempting to do a complex certification, my advice would be to note the following knowledge article and log a certification request: https://comm.support.ca.com/kb/requirements-for-performance-management-certification-request/KB000035801
The information and methods that we have for Self-Certification are all contained within the documented steps and methods:
Self-Certification - CA Performance Management - 3.6 - CA Technologies Documentation
That being said, what sort of tool are you looking for? Something to assist with the XML formatting or something specific to the MIB side of things?
Also, instead of self-certification, did you know that you can open a support case and get the Performance Management certification team to design a certification for inclusion within the product itself? These certifications are also generally released to the On-Demand Certification Portal as well:
Requirements for Performance Management Certificat - CA Knowledge
CA Performance Management On-Demand Certifications - CA Technologies
Thank you for the reply and the links.
I was looking something more to the MIB side of things (that helped join multiple SNMP tables in one vendor certification for example)
I am not exactly sure what you mean. Something to visually look at a device's mibs or navigate a mib tree? There is nothing like that within Performance Management but Spectrum does have some MIB Tools that allow you to see what is there and available more visually.
