We recently made an integration project with all WIFI APs from the IT parc in Spectrum.
Following this, we have some issue with monitoring because we get spammed a lot with all these APs alarms.
My goal is to replicate our general global collection (with all devices in our scope) but without APs and another one with.
I succesfully managed to create the only APs global collection but I have trouble to create the replicated one.
For information: all APs does not have SNMP support and are only added as IP device.
Here is some screenshot to explain:
World is the general one. Here is the topology:
I also would like to keep the topoly as it is done above.
The WIFI APs global collection is made with this search conditions:
Because we created a user attribute for APs, like this:
Therefore my idea was to create a Global Collection with all security strings needed and make a search options where attribute USER_Asset_Tag does not equal "LAP" and other values.
But it doesn't work, I have the same number of devices and the exact same traps displayed.
I also tried to create a new filer to not display AP related traps (which was the easier solution for me) but it is not working and as I saw on the forum it does not work in general.
Could someone confirm this to me please?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
You need to change your "OR" by a "AND" in your filter! (because with "not equal" you want devices which are not equal to MAP *AND* also not equal to LAP *AND* also...)
Hope that will help.
I understand your point but it is still not working.
The current configuration of the filter is:
But I still have APs traps.
For example one related to this device:
I even tried with another attribute: Device type but same result.
I don't remember but for me I don't need to refresh anything (like restart java console for example) after modifying filters, Could you confirm to me please?
I confirm, you don't have to restart anything. You just have to wait (or force) a Global Collection refresh.
