How to know if Airwave using AMON or SNMP in front of 7210

Hi AirHeads,

I just deployend a new Airwave and i configure it to prefer AMON over SNMP..but when it's configure like that i dont see that the AIRWAVE getting client info at all (Clients = 0 ) even due i configure it under the AirWave profile and the 8211 is open (Can i check it from the Airwave CLI?)

When changing back to SNMP all the client / ap info is appering.


any advise? what do i missing here?


do i need to configure something else on the controller or on the AW itself?




AMP version 8.0.9



Anyone know's what the issue itself - i need a solution , i would like the client to see all the great APPRF capabilites on his AirWave.

Is there a firewall between Airwave and the controller?  UDP 8211 needs to flow from the controller to Airwave. Please see the knowledgebase article here: to troubleshoot Amon.

You'll also want to make sure that your controller has the configured profile to send AMON data to AirWave:


This is the main AMON setting showing which destination AMP server is using which AMON profile (you can have up to 4 destinations):

# show running-config | include mgmt

(ex) mgmt-server type amp primary-server profile default-amp


Then you want to look at what is enabled in the profile:

# show mgmt-server profile default-amp

Mgmt Config profile "default-amp" (Predefined (changed))

Parameter Value
--------- -----
Stats            Enabled
Tag              Enabled
Sessions      Enabled
Monitored Info Enabled
Misc             Enabled
Location       Enabled
UCC Monitoring Disabled
AirGroup Info Disabled


The above is determined by:

( (config) #mgmt-server profile default-amp
( (Mgmt Config profile "default-amp") #?
airgroupinfo-enable              AirGroup enable
clone                                    Copy data from another Mgmt Config profile
location-enable                    Station RSSI/AP Neighbours enable
misc-enable                         AP System Stats/Spec Dev/Station Steer Info enable
monitored-info-enable         Monitored AP/Station Info enable
no                                        Delete Command
sessions-enable                  Firewall DNA/App/Aggregate Sessions enable
stats-enable                         Radio/VAP/Station Stats enable
tag-enable                           Tag enable
uccmonitoring-enable          UCC Monitoring enable


For clients, you're mostly concerned with: location-enable (for VRF), stats-enable and monitored-info-enable (AP and client data), misc-enable (client match), sessions-enable (AppRF).  By default, there is no profile on the controller.
