triggers in airwave

Hello,

 

I have two controllers 6000 with M3 and airwave, what type of trigger should I configure in airwave to get informed about problems like fans  or power supply fail?.

 

Those triggers are fire up based on snmp pooling from airwave to controllers or based on traps received from controllers?.

I ask it because I only have AP up or down traps active on controllers.

 

Thank you

Re: triggers in airwave

You can use the following snmp traps :

FAN:

POWER SUPPLY

2015-02-05 06_34_28-192.168.1.110_22 - Tera Term VT.png

 

You can enable these by using the following command:
(MASTER-CONTROLLER) (config) #snmp-server trap enable <trap name>

(MASTER-CONTROLLER) (config) #snmp-server host <airwave server> version 2c <community string> inform udp-port 162
(MASTER-CONTROLLER) (config) #snmp-server community <community string>

 

And you can use this guide to help setup the triggers:

Re: triggers in airwave

Hi,
The question is if airwave uses traps sent by controllers ( for example to let know if a fan fails) to activates the trigger (so we must enable sending traps in controllers) or airwave polls the controllers to know if fan unit fails then activates the trigger.

Thank you

Yes

Re: triggers in airwave

Do you know if all triggers from airwave are based on traps received or airwave polls in some case controllers to activates some type of trigger?

Thank you

Re: triggers in airwave

Not all triggers are based on traps , some are based on polls and some are based on what's available on the trap list from the controller perspective.

 

For the up and down APs , you could use this instead of the snmp pools :

Re: triggers in airwave

OK,

 

I would really appreciate if anyone can tell me what triggers are based on traps received and what others based on polls, in order to know what traps should I enable on controllers.

 

Thank you

Re: triggers in airwave

There's a very good guide that's attached to every AirWave installation

Check out the "Aruba and AirWave Best Practices Guide"

It's located under Home -> Documentation

There's an appendix that helps differentiate what can be gotten via polls vs traps

The end of Appendix A in particular has a list of traps that AirWave utilizes

Link to most current on support site.

 

Beyond that, any trap can be tracked using the System -> Triggers -> Device Event or Device IDS Event triggers.
