Recognizing WAN status

Hive Manager displays connection status of associated devices. Status quality is measured with the capwap delay value. Altough Aerohive devices continue to run without a WAN connection this monitoring functionality could also be used to determine wheter a branch is disconnected from the internet or not. An alerting would need to be defined that is triggered when a device or a devicegroup is not connected for at least 5 min. That would help our teams to determine WAN connectivity problems more quickly. Also this could be used for further SLA reporting. Currently only with capwap the alerting cannot be turned on as it would go on - off - on - off even in small events where just the delay is to big.

Hi Sbx,

This is useful input. CAPWAP delay alarms are not end-user configurable currently.

But we could look into ways for addressing the need you have to monitor WAN connectivity.

Thanks

any news? since 6.1r6 we can disable alarms per device, but originally the idea was to have the delay value configurable`?

Configurable delay turned out to be a bigger issue than originally thought. We have not abandoned that idea, but we felt that half a loaf sooner was preferred over a full loaf later.

Just a quick question: Hive Manager knows if the device is connected or not and how long it actually has been so, why not do alarming from there?

Say there would be a configurable option so that hivemanager sends out an alert if the device had no connection for x seconds/minutes?
