Monitoring Access Points on Aruba 72xx

Hi,

We are currently monitoring access points for some devices using the Aruba Instant MIBs using information from the following tables:

  • aiAccessPointEntry
  • aiClientEntry
  • aiRadioEntry
  • aiWlanEntry

This has worked well for us, however we now need to integrate with the Aruba 7205 - and the MIB is not present.


What integration options are there to get the same (or similar) information about the access points (name, MAC, congestion, CPU), their channels (SSID, Channel, Utilization), and connected clients (name, bytes sent and received, SNR, MAC, IP)

Are there alternative MIBs (if so, where should I be looking),  or is there a REST interface for the 72xx series (in which case where can I find offline documentation for this)

Many thanks

In General the MIBs for ArubaOS 6.x and 8.x for the controller is located in the same folder as the controller software.  It is self-documenting and does not have any separate documentation for it. 

 

ArubaOS 8.x does have an api.  Please see a video about this here:  https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Video/ArubaOS-8-x-REST-API-with-Python/ta-p/550619

Webinar slides about the same is here:  https://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/unified-wired-wireless-access/75399/1/Configuring%20different%20APIs%20in%20Aruba%208.x%20.pdf

Re: Monitoring Access Points on Aruba 72xx

Unfortunately, this is not really solved for me.

 

I am currently determining the feasibility of integrating with the 72xx series. I do not have HTTP access to a device, so browsing to the controller to look at the swagger documentation is not possible. While a general 'getting started' guide is useful, I really need complete offline documentation of the endpoints. Is there any available?

 

We generally prefer integrating through SNMP if available. I tried hunting for MIBs at https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation
(the search does not work!). I can't find them there. Do you have a direct link to the relevant ones? There are a lot of Aruba specific MIBs so some clue as to where I should be looking for AP information would be gratefully received!

The MIBs are in the same folder as the software downloads.  Try here:  https://support.arubanetworks.com/DownloadSoftware/tabid/75/DMXModule/510/EntryId/35599/Default.aspx

Again, the Mibs do not have accompanying documentation..  The comments are in the Mibs themself.

 

I am not aware of offline documentation of the API.  Unfortunately, much of the documentation and the swagger port is located at https://<ip address of controller>/api  I am asking around.

Re: Monitoring Access Points on Aruba 72xx

Try this link. Might give you some information as to what MIBS (and where to find them in the MIB Tree) to use.

 

http://www.oidview.com/mibs/14823/WLSX-SWITCH-MIB.html

 

Also some useful MIBS,

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.3.1.11.1.2.1041 - Access point is down

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.3.1.11.1.2.1040 - Access point is Up

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.5.2.2.1.15 – Associated clients details

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.5.3.1.1.1.2 – Number of clients of an Ap

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.5.1.2 - Total Current Channel Bandwidth (kbps) per AP

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.5.1.12 - Total Bandwidth per AP BSSID (kbps)

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.1.11.1.4 - Free Memory , CPU utilization

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.1 - Number of Current APs per Controller

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.14823.2.2.1.1.3.4.1.6 - Number of Down APs per Controller

 

I have not tried them with the 8.5 version but it should be more or less the same.

Re: Monitoring Access Points on Aruba 72xx

I am unable to download the software because we do not have a 'service contract'. Are the MIBs not available publically?

Why dont you open a support ticket requesting for the MIBs for your version.
