I want to add hivemanager (on prem) to our management system. I do not want to add the aps themselves.

I just want to know if hivemanager is up, responding and any other system alarms, how is this possible? If I enable snmp in the traffic policy I have to choose which devices to apply the policy to and only the ap's are available to select Is this possible and how do you do it?

The SNMP Settings for HiveManager, such as they are, can be found under Home->Administration->HiveManager Services.

As far as I know, there are only two traps which are sent by HiveManager itself, one on a "warm" start (i.e. services restarting) and one on a "cold" start (i.e. after a full reboot).

The SNMP agent does not respond to SNMP GET requests however, so this is no good for "polling" to determine if the system is still up.

You could poll on TCP port 443 or 22 to check whether the GUI/SSH server is up or obviously with a basic PING.
