Hello guys.

Is there anyone, who have the solution to monitor status of 30 access points in our customers Aruba 3200 mobility controller?

We have configured SNMP, and i tried to download the MIB file from Arubas support site, but no entries with status of AP's, how many is up/down..

I have checked Google, Aruba forums and so on, and didn't find a solution.

I would like to be a little payment for a solution to this.

Best regards Alexander Fabech Kortermann-IT ApS

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no way to get the status of all the AP's in one shot, at least not through SNMP. You have to get the status for all the AP's:

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.3.3.1.2.1.1.11 aiapstatus
1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.4.1.6  globalAPState (wslx-switch) ** Not always available **
1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.1.0 = "275" [ASN_UNSIGNED]  -- wlsxSwitchTotalNumAccessPoints
1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.2.0 = "1719" [ASN_UNSIGNED] -- wlsxSwitchTotalNumStationsAssociated

In addition, there are two separate MIB tracks, one set is in the Aruba AIAP and WLSX. Which make it a bit difficult to cover all.

Hi, JR!

Tell me please, your template works just fine with my 7205 except one problem it create a one sensor for each AP in each SSID. So if I has 10 APs with 3 SSID on them then I get 30 sensors. All the sensor of one AP is the same. They just multiply. Can you make a fix or somehow help me to overcome this. It is very annoying to delete unneeded senosors especially when I has 80 of them with 5 SSID on each.. Poor me ((((((

Thank you very much!

The templates for the Aruba Wireless controllers are designed to create

  • Table: wlsxSysXProcessorTable
  • wlsxSysXMemoryTable
  • AP Stat: [tablename] / [rowidentifier]
  • aiRadioTable (AP Name)
  • wlsxWlanStationStatsTable
  • Aruba AP(AP Name) Status
  • Aruba AP(AP Name) WLan Traffic(WL index : SSID)
  • wlsxWlanAPStats

Some of these are detailed, like the "wLAN traffic" (wlsxWlanAPStats), which are one sensor per SSID /per AP...
If you have the template set for auto-discovery, it will add the sensors you delete back again...

I have moved the detail templates to a separate file to reduce the number of sensors it creates. by default. (Like the "User Table").

Please download latest from GitLab Aruba Template
