Controller Based WLANs

Which MIBs can give information about APs?

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS versions.

 

To show the total number of APs that are connected to an Aruba controller:

 

snmpwalk -v 2c -c <snmp community name> <controller IP addr>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.3.1.7 | grep 'INTEGER: 1' | wc -l

 

The CLI equivalent of this command is "show wlan ap type access-point". (In ArubaOS 3.x, it is "show ap active type access-point".) The result of this command shows how many BSSIDs are configured for an AP.

 

To show the total number of physical AP that are connected to an Aruba controller:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c <snmp community name> <controller IP addr>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.1.0 | grep 'INTEGER: 1' | wc -l

The CLI equivalent of this command is "show wlan ap table". (In ArubaOS 3.x, it is "show ap active type access-point"). This output shows AP and AM.

 

To show the total number of APs that are up:

 

snmpwalk -v 2c -m ALL -c <snmp community name> <Master controller IP
addr> .1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.4.1.6 | grep 'INTEGER: 1' |wc -l

The CLI equivalent of this command is "show ap global-list location 0.0.0". (In ArubaOS 3.x, it is "show ap database".) This SNMP poll must be run against the Aruba Master Controller.

 

To show the total number of APs that are down:

 

snmpwalk -v 2c -m ALL -c <snmp community name> <Master controller IP
addr> .1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.4.1.6 | grep 'INTEGER: 2' |wc -l

The CLI equivalent of this command is "show ap global-list location 0.0.0". (In ArubaOS 3.x, it is "show ap database inactive".) This SNMP poll must be run against the Aruba Master Controller.

 

To show the total number of air monitors that are connected to an Aruba controller:

 

snmpwalk -v 2c -m ALL -c <snmp community name> <controller IP addr>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.3.1.7 | grep 'INTEGER: ap' | wc -l

The CLI equivalent of this command is "show wlan ap type air-monitor". (In ArubaOS 3.x, it is "show ap active type access-point".)
