Sometimes you may wish to test the implementation of one particular MIB.

There are two methods for doing this.

Method 1 is the simplest, and allows us to test the entire MIB. Let’s use the UDP MIB as an example.

In the left column, switch to the MIB testing tab. SilverCreek will display a list of MIBs.

Make sure the standard MIB’s radio button and UDP checkbox are filled.

Click the green running man icon to run all the tests that apply to the UDP MIB.

A prompt will display the starting and stopping points for the UDP MIB.

Click “okay” to run the tests.

Some of the tests will pass very quickly.

Some of them, involving set varbinds will remain untested. This is because a set writes a value into a variable, but read-write variables contained in this MIB, so these tests were not used.

The second method allows you to test only a portion of the objects within the target MIB.

This approach can save a lot of time in the testing process, particularly when just one area of a MIB has changed.

Open the test menu, and open “select MIBs to test and protocol test suites,” then “Walk MIBs in range”

This opens a new window called “ENTRY for Scoped Variables” with more settings for the MIB we would like to test.

To define a subset of the UDP MIB, click “add scope.”

Click to browse for the “Scoped Start” field.

In this video example, we’ll be testing the tables contained in the UDP MIB, so we select the first UDP MIB table and click “add.”

Next, click to browse for the “Scoped Stop” field.

Continuing with this example, we select the last entry in the MIB.

In this case, “UDP HCO out diagrams” and click “add.”

Click apply then, “okay.”

Now that we’ve set our range within the UDP MIB, we can click “okay” to close this window.

Click the green run icon, then click okay to run the tests on the UDP MIBs tables.

Thanks for watching.
