Over the last twelve months, service providers, as well as most global 2000 organizations, have accelerated their adoption rate of IPv6.
The IPv6 MIBs (management information base) define and organize the information required to manage, troubleshoot and diagnose IPv6 network operation:
RFC 4293 Management Information Base for the Internet Protocol (IP)
RFC 4022 Management Information Base for the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
RFC 4113 Management Information Base for the User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
New network devices incorporating the IPv6 MIBs require test and verification of their counters.
The new version of SilverCreek has more than 140 new tests to verify if an IPv6 – aware counter is correctly counting valid packets as well as invalid packets, and incrementing the counter appropriately.
Integrated Software Packet Generator
Scapy is a freely available Python packet manipulation program, available for Windows and Linux. Scapy provides SilverCreek users with a software-based packet generator, able to forge normal and malformed SNMP packets, and send them on the wire to the device under test.
InterWorking Labs has integrated Scapy with SilverCreek, so that engineers can use a complete solution, for immediate test results. No time consuming integration of the two products is required.
With the Scapy integration, InterWorking Labs has created "the universal remote" of SNMP counter testing; clients can avoid the headaches of learning the ins and outs of multiple products and just concentrate on making sure that the IPv6 – aware counters are working properly. Service providers will have more confidence that the traffic consumption and utilization statistics are accurate.
