I've spent a lot of time trying to get number of working AP registered on Cisco WLC 4400 series. Since there is a problem to make SNMP walk sensor (and, what is more important, i do not want to waste licensed sensors for every AP i need to watch :) ), i've created simple .exe file, which return number of AP's, using snmpwalk utility.

This will work if you have Windows.

1) Install net-snmp from http://www.net-snmp.org/ on probe to default destination.

2) Download https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1209716/PRTG/PRTGTest.7z 7z archive contains .exe file and C sharp original files. Be sure you have .NET Framework installed.

3) Place .exe to PRTG custom sensors folder

4) Make new EXE/Script sensor with this .exe file

5) Enjoy.

Very nice, but I'm afraid the link you provided is returning a 404... :)

I can not edit my first post due to server error, so right sequence is -

1) Download https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1209716/PRTG/PRTGTest.7z

7z archive contains .exe file, .ini file and C sharp sources. Be sure you have .NET Framework installed.

2) Place .exe and .ini to PRTG custom sensors /EXE folder

3) Change settings in .ini

4) Make new EXE/Script sensor with .exe file

5) Enjoy.
