Monitoring the uplink bandwidth for the RAP-5

Hi all,

Anyone knows how to monitor the uplink bandwidth on the RAP-5 using the controller?

Thanks.

Re: Monitoring the uplink bandwidth for the RAP-5

Honestly, besides using Airwave we never found a ways to do it on the controller. We even spoke with TAC about SNMP or MIB settings and they had nothing to provide. We wanted our Orion system to track that information but ended up using Airwave to track the uplink utilization on the RAPs.

With different uplink speeds, we are not able to do any threshold alerting but are able to see if sites have "maxed out" their connections if they complain about performance.

Not perfect but functional

You cannot do this via the controller.

You can use the remotePortTxBytes and the remotePortRxBytes OID to monitor the traffic using an external system via SNMP. If you were doing this from linux, I would try this:

s2w remotePortRxBytes -OnTxBytes -On

Re: Monitoring the uplink bandwidth for the RAP-5

I don't typically use MIB walkers, not a fan of the interfaces they typically provide.  But you can if you find it easier to read.  I typically output to a text or CSV file and then open in notepad or Excel.

 

Keep in mind that the SNMP commands Colin provided were mashed by the forum.

Here's a rewrite:

# s2w 10.10.10.10 community_string remotePortRxBytes -On

# s2w 10.10.10.10 community_string remotePortTxBytes -On
