We need to implement SNMP polling & SNMP traps for Cisco Wireless Access Point (Model: Aironet).
NOTE: In our case, WAP’s are managed through WLC’s (Wireless Controller).
If WAP’s are managed through WLC’s, we don’t have access to configuration mode on WAP’s.
Whatever has to be done for WAP’s configuration, it will be done on WLC’s.
% Invalid input detected at ‘^’ marker.
We need to enable any configuration for WAP’s through WLC.
But, To enable SNMP polling for WAP’s, even on WLC, we don’t have any option.
We can only enable ping monitoring on WAP’s, managed through WLC’s. Ping monitoring means, we can only check if WAP is up or not, nothing else or any specific parameter.
To configure SNMP traps, we don’t have the specific option like High CPU utilization; we have the generalized or broad categories mentioned below.
WLC-5760(config)#snmp-server enable traps wireless ?
bsn80211Security Security related trap
bsnAccessPoint Access Point traps
bsnAutoRF RF related traps
bsnGeneral General Controller traps
bsnMobileStation Controls wireless client traps
bsnRogue Rogue related traps
We have broad categories of SNMP traps, in every category, there are set of SMNP traps which will be enabled.
If we want to enable few SNMP traps out of broad category, we need to enable SNMP pruning at SNMP server end.
