We have just finished setting up a new wireless infrastructure out to 15 locations worldwide. All locations have AP-105’s and MAS 3500 24 port switches, our large offices have a 3200 controller and our smaller offices have 650 controllers. We have one master controller and we also have a Airwave. All the offices come to our main location via our MPLS network we have setup GRE tunnels for the wireless to come back to the main office. We do already have SNMP turned up.
What I would like to find out is what triggers should I setup in our Airwave to help us monitor our environment? What triggers would be best to alert on to help detect issues before they become major problems? Is there a best practice document? Also is there a document that explains all the triggers and what they do?
My apologies for not responding to this post, have been some issues with my account.
Most customers use the AP down trigger to notify of outages. You can set up different conditions so you can send alerts with varying levels of severrity based on the kind of outage like critical for controllers etc. The other trigger types that I have seen customers use are number of clients per radio (device client count), interface usage (radio bandwidth), client usage (busy clients). For RF troubleshooting and diagnostics I would recommend noise floor trigger, channel utilization.
Let me know if you would like to setup some time to discuss more.
Thanks for the responce...I was worried no one liked me :-)
I figured the up down for the AP's, switch, and controllers would obviously be moniotred. What I was hoping to find out was more information on the other triggers I could or should setup.
I would love to have you contact me on this, that would be great.
Here is the list I was talking about.

RADIUS Authentication Issues
Hi Burleyman (lol),I trigger on:Device Down (Device Type is Access Point) - with email altert.
I know that's not a lot. I do more with reporting.
I am looking on how to report when a certain mac address gets on the network. I keep looking... or it's a "feature" that I cannot get it to work.
There's a trigger for that scenario:
Go to System -> Triggers -> Add
Select trigger type = Connected Client
I have configured the same to monitor the client (MAC Address) but it's not working. The moment the defined MAC address should connect, I should recieve mail and same way while disconnected.
For the first time I recieved mails of connected and disconnected but it's not happening now.
Can you please suggest how to fix it
Make sure we have Suppress until Acknowledged is set to "No" in the trigger definition.
If this is set to yes, untill we manually acknowledge the first alert we wont receive the second one.
Will implement and see the effect...
Keep you posted...
Screenshot cut off the very last setting:
Suppress until Acknowledged -> if it's set to yes; then you're only going to see initial alert. Setting to no will result in an alert anytime the connected client MACs are seen.
I will do it and will see if it works...
Thanks Dude!!! It's working fine.
Can you please let me know if we can configure Radius authentication on CPPM for login and snmp string?
You can setup AMP to authenticate off of CPPM over RADIUS, but SNMP does not tunnel through CPPM.
In AMP configure CPPM as auth destination
AMP Setup -> Authentication -> RADIUS
In CPPM configure policy to assign role with Radius:Aruba Type:Aruba-Admin-Role (4)
SNMP communication between AMP and CPPM is solely for AMP to collect some CPPM server stats over SNMP. There's several feature requests for adding further integration in the ideas portal to upvote.
