NPM 12.1 Sneak Peek – Meraki Wireless Monitoring

0
0

Now that you’ve seen how to use PerfStack for networks, it’s time to check out the improved MerakiⓇ wireless monitoring of NPM 12.1!

This feature was born from a simple customer request: to cover Meraki gear in the same way we do all the other wireless vendors, showing their hybrid infrastructure in a single pane of glass.  Additional research show a common need: don’t develop some different monitoring specific to Meraki, just cover all my wireless gear in one spot, in the same way.

Now NPM has been able to monitor Meraki wireless gear for quite some time.  Use the Add Node wizard to add APs with SNMP polling, and you’re off the races.  But there were a couple of problems:

  1. Each AP had to be added individually.  Discovery can speed this up, but many users prefer not to run comprehensive discovery often. This really clashes with the idea that Meraki APs can be deployed with near zero touch.
  2. Client information is not available via SNMP, so it is missing in NPM.  Turns out client information is kind of important if you want to know what’s going on with your wireless service.
