Event info on email
« on: January 04, 2014, 06:17:16 PM »
Does somebody set up on wing 5.4.4 (RFS6000) to receive e-mail notification when access point is down (not connected to controller any more)?

I believe WiNG 5.x supports email notification... the problem is you'll get a notification (or SNMP trap) when the AP un-adopts, not necessarily when it's down... what usually ends up happening is that an AP will occasionally bounce up and down and your inbox will get flooded with messages. So many that you stop paying attention.

I wrote a custom script/application that verifies the configured APs are online and running. If they are down for more than 5 minutes (configurable) it trips an alarm via email. This eliminates the email barrage when an AP bounces or reboots, it also eliminates all possibility of false positives.

I have yet to find a management system that will do this simple task.

Unfortunately I'm not quite ready to release the script... perhaps in a few months.

Cheers!

Hi,

they've added the feature into 5.5.1, check Release Notes. I haven't tried this yet, but looks promising.

"Ability to track devices that are un-adopted for a specified duration of time
(user configurable) and raise an event or snmp trap. This feature allows
monitoring systems to subscribe to this event instead of device un-adoption
event to track devices going offline."

Cheers
