Network Monitoring


Can experts in this forum help me understand/confirm, if Nagios can monitor Wireless Access Points (WAP) / WLAN devices from Aruba. Also is there a list of products (LAN/WAP) that it currently supports?

Appreciate your help.

The answer is yes. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I think snmp is the most useful protocal for that kind of products. (I am an application guy myself).

I not sure if there is a list. If you want to use snmp you need to check the device spec if it is supported.

I guess the best approach is to compile a list of what protocols most of the device support and then go from there.
