Working with RMON in MAS

Aruba Employee

Introduction :

 

RMON, which provides standard information that a network administrator can use to monitor, analyze, and troubleshoot a group of distributed local area networks (LANs). Monitoring devices (commonly called "probes") contain RMON software agents that collect information and analyze packets. These probes act as servers and the Network Management applications that communicate with them act as clients. While both agent configuration and data collection use SNMP, RMON is designed to operate differently than other SNMP-based systems.

You can use the following command to enable RMON service on the Mobility Access Switch:

 

(host)(config)# service rmon

 

The service rmon command is disabled by default. When the service rmon command is disabled, the rmon data is not populated in the CLI display command but all the other configurations can be done. When the service rmon command is enabled, all the configurations done before would be applied.

 

 

You can use the following command to associate the alarm profile with the alarm entry:

 

(host)(config)#rmon alarm <alarm_index>

 

(host)(alarm_index)#alarm-profile <alarm-profile-name>

 

You can use the following command to monitor an interface or OID:

 

(host)(alarm_index)#monitor <oid>

 

You can use the following command to monitor OID on gigabitethernet interface:

 

(host)(alarm_index)#monitor gigabitethernet <slot/module/port> oid-type <oid_types>

 

You can use the following command to monitor OID on port-channel interface:

 

(host)(alarm_index)#monitor port-channel <port-channel id> oid-type <oid_types>
