Just run an new emulator instance for each simulated snmp device.

A number of years ago I did something similar with many instances of a
simple tcp server.  I want to say I had 700 nodes running, but my memory is
a bit fuzzy on that.  A ps listing showed pages and pages of beams, the
computer was sluggish, but it worked. :)
