  • 1.  Snmp on access point AP32

    Posted 02-13-2024 08:54

    Good morning everyone

    I'm dealing with the MIST issue with an AP32 model access point: I can't see if SNMP is present, from the documentation it

     seems not and not even from the "Juniper Mist" management system

    Greetings 

    Pascal

    You cant monitor the AP's via snmp, you need to use the mist api to monitor them.

    You can configure snmp monitoring for the app's in the mist portal.

    Ok thanks for the information that SNMP is not supported: but with the mist api I see some additional information that is not seen
    in Wi-Fi Assurance i.e. in the "Juniper Mist" management system?

    Greetings

    SNMP might work - there has aparently been an update since I worked with this. So might be worth looking into - the API isnt too stable at least based on our experience.

    To clarify a few points in this thread:

    My first comment is that every single thing that is done in Mist, is done via an API, it is 100% API native and rock solid.

    Mist uses a variety of ways to gather analytics and data that is sent to the Mist cloud.  The Mist cloud provides more modern and cloud-based technologies that you can use to pull data from the cloud instead of SNMP.  Specifically, Webhooks, Websockets and RESTful API's.

    The support for SNMP that was linked is for managed switches if you had a specific need to have a switch send SNMP data to a local managed NMS server.  Typically, not needed as the data present in the Mist cloud already can give insights into the health and happiness of the switched environment.

    Mist's built in alerting also addresses a lot of functionality that SNMP may have been used for as well.

    Yes, there is more data available using the API than what is displayed in the Mist Dashboard.  This is by design so that the information presented is typically what is needed to validate and configure your network.  If all the data points and settings available were displayed on the Mist dashboard, you would be scrolling for hours and it would be information overload.

    Is there something specific you are looking for?

    OK OK thanks, congratulations for the clear explanation: I'm not looking for anything in particular, it was just out of curiosity.
    however it is true in the Wi-Fi world there are a lot of technical terms/variables that no one can imagine and
    which in fact no one is interested in, mostly those who design know them, not us.
    greetings and good work
