Need OID for number of clients connected to one AP

I am using a third party software application which provides a way for SNMP polling to return the number of clients associated with each Autonomous Ruckus AP (Zoneflex indoor 7352's and 7372's).  On the home screen, all the AP's are listed with the number of current connections next to it.  This is accomplished by entering the custom OID in the software's setup for each AP along with the community string. This works fine for the Cisco AP's using the OID of 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.273.1.2.1.1.18 .  So far, I have tried these OID's for the Ruckus AP's:

.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.273.1.1.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.1.1.1.15.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.2.1.1.2.1.1.15
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.2.1.1.1.1.1.30
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.21
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2

None of these OID's work for me.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.  I am using SNMP v2c on the Ruckus AP's without the inclusion of a Zone Director, only the third party software running on its router/controller.

Extract the MIBs for Solo AP image from this link:
https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software/837-standalone-ap-mibs-for-release-100-1-0-0-432

I don't know which OID is AP connected clients however.

In RUCKUS-RADIO-MIB.txt the ruckusRadioStatsNumAuthSta  (number of Authorized, not just Associated Stations), is 1.3.6.1.4.1.2503.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.3

Thank you.  I don't see any numerical OID's in this file.  My software is only looking for an OID such as those listed in the OP.

What is the definition of an Authorized Station?

Successfully passed Authentication (ie PSK, or 802.1x uid/pw, Webauth guest pass, etc).  Associated stations don't get network access until successfully Authenticated.

Associated Stations = ruckusRadioStatsNumSta = 1.3.6.1.4.1.2503.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2
if you want to see total wireless clients associated, and how many are successfully authenticated.

Try this?
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3

You could also use a tool like snmpwalk.exe to hit your AP and see what OID's are returned.  https://www.snmpsoft.com/cmd-tools/snmp-walk/

The combination of info above might help you find it.

Good luck

1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2.1 is 2.4 GHz clients
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2.2 is 5 GHz clients

Using PRTG's factory sensor I just add them together to get the total.

Thanks, Matt, I appreciate your persistence.  I forgot to mention: all of my AP's are set for 2.4GHz only.  So far I have tried all of the following without success:

1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2.1
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.21
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.1.1.1.15.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.2.1.1.1.1.1.30
1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.2.2.1.1.2.1.1.15

So I did an SNMP Walk against my single ZF7982 and the resulting OID's that came back were:
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.6
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.7
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.8
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.9
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.10
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.11
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.12
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.13
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.14
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.15
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.16
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.17
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.18
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.19
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.20
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.21
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.22
.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.23

By running SNMP Walk against your AP, and logging into your AP to see the total number of stations (STA) you'll be able compare the counter results and find the correct OID.

PRTG also has a tool called SNMP Tester that lets you plug in the OID and test against your device.  https://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester

I belived your OID will vary by model?  Not sure on this.

Thanks, Todd.  I'm going to try out those two programs next week when I go back into the field.

Todd and Matt,
Do you think I should include the first dot as in:

.1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.6

or leave it out as in:

1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.6.1.1.1.4.1.3.6

or does it matter?

So I did an snmp walk today on my stubborn Ruckus ZF7352.  The walk returned a long list of OID's (the total at end of list indicated 2878 but, actually, there were only 295 listed).  Interestingly, the list started with .1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.11.1 , which is very close to the OID sent by Todd, 1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.1.1.12.1.1.1.3.1.2.1 .  None of the OID's returned by the walk had a value that was within 1 of the actual number of associated clients on the AP in question.  I am not sure why Todd's OID wasn't included in the list.  The walk command I used was "snmpwalk.exe -r:192.168.0.55 -v:2c"  Did I do something wrong?

Sorry was on vacation last week.   Just when I think I'm getting a grasp on this SNMP stuff, something like this happens and makes me think I know nothing.  Your command is exactly the same as mine so I don't think you did anything wrong.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.... I would have thought that "walk" would have returned the info you needed.

Jerry,
You could also use the Paessler MIB Importer to try to find your OID.  It provides a a description for each MIB.
