Hi , just wanted to know if anyone has successfully used PRTG and SNMP to get ruckus AP status down ?

i am using vSCG 3.4.1 and all my AP connect via different internet subnets and locations. my company has not invested in SCI yet and i am tasked to manage and maintain the up time and status of all AP. we use PRTG and wanted to know if it is possible to collect this trap from the Controller ? 

Thank you

Hi Frikkie,

we also use PRTG, you can use SNMP Sensors to monitor APs and also the Controlloer. Also just enter PRTG Server in vSCG as Syslog-Server and put a Syslog Sensor in PRTG for your Controller. e.g. I dont know how many APs you got, but you also can add each AP to PRTG using the SNMP Uptime Sensor or also PING Sensor.

Regards

Peter

you are welcome, just add your controller or AP and use auto discovery. except syslog sensor must be added manually

I am using PTRG and Cacti both,No issues till date,But what I have to do is add Individual AP SNMP to PTRG .Is there any way to pull the AP status from the vSZ SNMP itself?

By default, a lot of sensors are easy to setup with the vSZ. However, I've been trying to get the SNMP trap working correctly. It receives the warnings, but doesn't process them. When using the MIB importer, it seems that (for example .1.3.6.1.4.1.25053.2.10.1.23) OIDs are missing from the MIBs.
So I dont get alerted to AP disconnects, where as the vSZ does set the alarm to Major.
Any idea how to fix this? Either it's not in the MIBs or the MIB importer doesn't process everything correctly.
