I used to use Getif for poking around inside SNMP results from servers and devices. However it no longer works with Windows 7 and 64-bit.

I am looking for hopefully an open source bit of software that will allow me add MIB's as required and allow me to browse the MIB tree and send a request/walk off to a server to get results.

What do you all use?

    Why community wiki? This seams like a perfectly valid question to me and that view appears to be supported by the upvotes. Jun 7, 2010 at 0:27

    I have seen similar questions shot down in flames. Dont really need the Rep, just a useful SNMP Browser :-)

You may give a try at MIB Browser from iReasoning, the free version is only limited to the number of loaded MIBs (10 at once).

Hope this helps.

At the moment, Getif works for me on windows 7. Just try starting it in "XP compatibility mode" :)

  • so, so true... I have yet to find a "good" MIB browser. I would pay for one that made the layout of the MIB trees easier to understand, and easier to walk a device and find out what values are available. Like maybe after you walk a device, give the ability filter out all the OIDs that are not available on that device and only see the relevant ones.

In my experience, SolarWinds has by far the best SNMP tools on Windows. I've also recently used NetTools Pro by Axence, and it seems reasonable. My windows machine is still XP though, so I can't vouch from them working on newer versions.

  • NetTools Pro and ManageEngine have the best MIB Browsers I've used, but they are all pretty bad really...
