[How-To] Getting Clarity Live up and running in 5 minutes!

[ Edited ]

Here's a quick How-To on setting up Clarity Live!

 

PREREQUISITES

  • AirWave 8.2.x
  • AOS 6.4.3+

 

CONTROLLER SETUP

 

Clarity may already be enabled on the controller side. Let's take a look.

 

First, let's verify that the controller is already sending AMON data to AirWave.

  • From the CLI, type:

    show mgmt-servers

    If you've set up AMON in the past, you should see your server listed as type "AirWave".

    (controller) #show mgmt-servers
    
    List of Management Servers
    --------------------------
    Type     Primary Server  Profile
    ----     --------------  -------
    AirWave  1.2.3.4    default-amp
    

    If your AirWave server is not listed, add it by running the command:

    mgmt-server type amp primary-server <airwave-ip> profile default-amp

 

Now that we know AMON is configured, let's take a look at the AirWave profile and ensure that we're sending Clarity data.

 

In the last step, you saw a Profile attached to the AirWave server. By default we have "default-amp", but you may have created your own.

  • At the CLI, run:

    show mgmt-server profile <profile-name>
    
    //example:
    show mgmt-server profile default-amp

    You should see something similar to this:

    Mgmt Config profile "default-amp" (Predefined (editable))
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Parameter          Value
    ---------          -----
    Stats              Enabled
    Tag                Enabled
    Sessions           Enabled
    Monitored Info     Disabled
    Misc               Enabled
    Location           Enabled
    UCC Monitoring     Disabled
    AirGroup Info      Disabled
    Inline DHCP stats  Enabled
    Inline AP stats    Enabled
    Inline Auth stats  Enabled
    Inline DNS stats   Enabled
    

    If the parameters beginning with "Inline" are not enabled, start by entering the mgmt-profile config mode:

    mgmt-server profile <profile-name>

    Next, enable the Inline stats options using the commands below:

    no inline-ap-stats-disable
    no inline-auth-disable
    no inline-dhcp-disable
    no inline-dns-disable
    That's it! Be sure to save your config.

 

AIRWAVE

 

Clarity Live is enabled by default, but we can verify by going to AMP Setup > General > Additional AMP Services > Enable Clarity Data Collection. This should be set to Yes.

 

After a few minutes, you should begin seeing Clarity Live data!

Any suggestions on what to check when Clarity still isn't showing data when the settings are configured as above?

Re: [How-To] Getting Clarity Live up and running in 5 minutes!

Any ideas on why I would see these results when enabling the DHCP & DNS monitoring?

 

(SEN-A650) (Mgmt Config profile "default-amp") #no inline-dhcp-disable
DHCP monitoring configuration not supported on this platform


(SEN-A650) (Mgmt Config profile "default-amp") #no inline-dns-disable
DNS monitoring configuration not supported on this platform

 

I am running 6.4.3.7 on a 650 controller.

Spoke to engineering. The 6xx controllers unfortunately cannot support Clarity Live due to memory requirements.

Does the clarity collect and display live data OR it polls at certain intervals?

The controller "pushes" the clarity data to Airwave using Amon.

We have Clarity running, and it looks good with 1 exception: 

It shows the resultes from various DNS servers, but not the 2 actually being used! Clients get DNS addresses through DHCP. 

Any idea why this happens?
