ZD 3050 - SNMP OID to pull disconnected APs

On the ZD web interface under the monitor tab, you can see the AP list, including the APs that are "disconnected". Is there a way to get the list, including the diconnected APs via SNMP? 

Alternatively, what is the best way to use SNMP to monitor for disconnected APs?

Found this one!
# snmptranslate -m ALL -Td SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.25053.
  SYNTAX        INTEGER {disconnected(0), connected(1), approvalPending(2), upgradingFirmware(3), provisioning(4)}
  MAX-ACCESS    read-only
  STATUS        current
  DESCRIPTION   "The connection status with ZD."
::= { iso(1) org(3) dod(6) internet(1) private(4) enterprises(1) ruckusRootMIB(25053) ruckusObjects(1) ruckusZD(2) ruckusZDWLANModule(2) ruckusZDWLANMIB(1) ruckusZDWLANObjects(1) ruckusZDWLANAPInfo(2) ruckusZDWLANAPTable(1) ruckusZDWLANAPEntry(1) ruckusZDWLANAPStatus(3) 6 240 62 144 17 39 0 }

By the way how is the trialing string defined for this AP 6 240 62 144 17 39 0? What does each number mean?

Did you find a way to implement it into a monitoring tool?If so, what?
Looking into adding it to Zabbix or something like it..

(OP: i dont think OID will do what you want)

from what i can see  , you need to snmp WALK:

when i walk that, i get 216 x OIDs , each with a 1 or 0 (ie status connected or disconnected).  this lines up w my ZD having 216 APs, and about 6x of them are curretnly disconnected.

however the issue becomes how do you monitor 216x OIDs via a snmp device (like PRTG or MRTG).   

what i do is monitor:

which is generated on/from the ZD and returns a # for current connected APs to the ZD  (so if you see a drop then you know some APs are missing/disconnected).

its the opposite of waht OP wants, but can accomplish the same thing.  (if you use PRTG you can use sensor factor to subtract this value from a static # you input, of your total active aps,  ie in my case,  216 - <this oid's value> = # of disconnected (or 0 if no disconnected aps)
