How to enable/cofigure AMON on Aruba IAP135s

I have several IAPs running OS 6.3.1.2-4.0.0.4. I've configured AMON on the 3400 Series Mobility Controller. However, I'm not certain if it's possible to enable on the IAP-135s.

 

Is it possible to enable AMON on the IAP-135s? Are the steps for enabling on a wireless controller the same for IAP135s?

AMON is not supported on IAP.

Thanks for the input Marcus. I just received a call from Aruba Support. They confirmed your statement.

 

I submitted the request for consideration/ideas for the next OS IAP release. Hopefully, the feature will get added in the next OS version.

What functionality are you looking to gain with AMON support?

Hi

 

i know is an old thread but better ask here than create a similar thread

 

The Functionality i want to gain from AMON is from this post http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Community-Tribal-Knowledge-Base/Why-you-should-always-enable-AMON-on-your-Aruba-Controller-when/ta-p/72104

 

I want to be able to see the same information a controller gives but with an IAP deployment

Re: How to enable/cofigure AMON on Aruba IAP135s

I totally understand that AMON is currently not supported/enabled yet. So I have one other question about the setting 'Prefer AMON vs SNMP Polling'.

 

If I select this option ' Yes', will that impact my polling/monitoring of the IAPs in Airwave?  I use Airwave to monitor activity on both my controllers and IAPs. If I select 'Yes', how will this impact my ability to manage/monitor my IAPs?

For now, please do not enable "prefer amon".  There is an open bug when prefer is on.  You should be just fine without it being set.

AirWave does not poll IAP nor does it use SNMP to talk to IAP.   Instead, IAP collects either 60 or 120 seconds of data, .zip's that info into a package, then pushes that package to AirWave who then unpacks it and adds the data.  This is not configurable.
