Ruckus AP Monitoring

Hello All,

Anyone find a reliable method for monitoring a Ruckus access point? The ZoneDirector will sometimes move a SSID to another wlanID in an access point, breaking the sensor and the sensor will think the SSID is down. No way I am aware to have the sensor follow the SSID to the newly assigned wlanID.

Here is a sample from the command line of an AP. "test" is currently assigned to wlan0, but for some reason it could be assigned to another wlanID in the future. The PRTG sensor monitors the wlanID, not the SSID. If the SSID is reassinged, wlan00 will no longer be listed and an alarm is posted in PRTG.

rkscli: get wlanlist
name          status   type   wlanID   radioID  bssid             ssid
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
wlan0         up       AP     wlan0    0        74:3e:2b:3e:d8:c8 test

Have Fun, Sean

Sean,

Can you confirm which sensors you are using? Where did you get them from? I'll see if I can modify them to look at the SSID instead of the wlanID.

Do you have an update on this? I have 28 AP's that I need to monitor too, but I keep getting these alerts as well.

Hi Sean,

What firmware is your controller running? I saw some detail in the MIBs from the ruckus site for similar counters, but these were for 10.0 firmware and my test ZD1200 is running 9.0. It does show up when adding after importing using the Paessler MIB Importer, but sensors dont get created, and if they do they don't show any clear data. Was looking for a way to monitor the associated client numbers too as I had deployed it and 4 R500s in a high movement location.

Regards,

Toy
