Third-Party access to AP health-information over 5508 controller

Hello,

Situation:

Third-Party Tool (Whats up gold) has connectivity to a 5508 controller, only.

There is no connectivity to the remote LAP access-points from the third-party tool.

Is it possiply to get the health information (AP available or not) over a controller via SNMP?

Yes, there are MIBS that can be queried to get the AP status.

Just to elaborate on what Steve is saying:

The SNMP monitoring of APs is still through the WLC itself. You would be pulling this information out of the WLC not via reachability to the AP itself from your tool.

Or you could use Whatsup for just an IP reachability (ping) of the AP which would require interaction with the WLC.

Can Whatsup be a trap receiver? I believe the WLC will send TRAPs for AP up/down events which I would think you could query off of.....

Can Whatsup be a trap receiver?

I never work with Whatup Gold before so I don't know, too.

I'll start a discussion with our local Whatsup Gold Administrator and check this part.

Thanks for your answer
