SNMP Monitoring

I am having problems locating the correct MIBs to monitor using SNMP. I would like to monitor the counters displayed on the Radio interface's detailed status page when using the web browser.

I have found the CISCO-DOT11-ASSOCIATION-MIB stats, but that seems to count only workstations that are active. I would like to monitor all the stats and keep the running totals.

I looked in the (Aironet) MIB but it seems to not be supported in the IOS only VXWorks.

Any insight would be most helpful also if there are any CLI commands I could use to collect the data I could create a expect script and parse the data also.

Thanks in advance.


Re: SNMP Monitoring

Are you running the APs in autonomous mode or lwapp mode? Also with model & sw version?

If you are using lwapp mode, you may have to glean the info from the controllers.

There are several good sources for doing so

Re: SNMP Monitoring


Maybe these can help you:

snmputil walk public . ' IP-addresses of the clients (as HEXes)

snmputil walk public . ' MAC-addresses of the clients (as HEXes)

snmputil walk public . ' Signal Strength (dBm)

snmputil walk public . ' how many seconds the client has been connected

for example:

C:\>snmputil walk public .

Variable =


Value = Integer32 -55

-55 would be the correct result for desibels

The snmputil.exe can be downloaded for example here:

"" would be the IP-address of the access point and "public" is the SNMP-communicty name

The IP-addresses and MAC-addresses come HEX-coded, so you must implement a simple HEX->ASCII conversion before you can really use them...
