Hello!

As part of Wi-Fi network monitoring, customer monitor "connectivity" to access points. If people use Wi-Fi - it means everything is ok. If not, send a warning to the manager.

On the EWC controller there are these numbers (how many people connected to the AP, how many people are active on the AP).

How can we take this data from the controller? Is there some kind of API or there is possibility to export? Periodic automatic export. Or it can be only manually?

Thank you!

You'd get such data via SNMP.

Could you show OIDs?
Is there other way?

Thank you!

wlanStatsID=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.3.4.5.1.1
wlanStatsAssociatedClients=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.3.4.5.1.2

You'd use the EMC build in MIB browser to find more OIDs that are helpful for you.

Ronald!

Some questions.
Main - how to identify AP by OID?

We need to understand two parameters in access points activities:
1. how many people are connected to a specific AP to the specific SSID (those who authorized the hotspot + those who have not yet been authorized)
2. How many people are actively using Wi-Fi (those who are authorized on the hotspot)

Thank you!

I've created a new post for some help on the XMC MIB tool....
https://community.extremenetworks.com/extreme/topics/xmc-mib-tool

It includes the OID for the AP and here for the MUs.....

muState=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.4 = True if the client is authenticated.
muWLANID=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.18 = ID of the WLAN that the MU is associated with.
muAPName=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12 = Name of the Access Point the client is associated with.

Thank you a lot, Ronald!

Could you, please, tell me where I can find standalone MIB file?

MIBs are all here: https://www.extremenetworks.com/support/policies/mibs/ or extracted https://github.com/librenms/librenms/tree/master/mibs/ewc which I added when adding EWC support to LibreNMS (that post has a few comments about the data returned from SNMP too). It supports alarms so you could alarm on AP clients (and mute the alarm outside of certain times too if there's nobody overnight).

Hi, James!

There is no MIBs for IdentiFi - https://www.extremenetworks.com/support/policies/mibs/

Here is https://github.com/librenms/librenms/tree/master/mibs/ewc all MIBs?

Thank you!
