  • 1.  How to create a global Global Collection excluding WIFI APs

    Posted 02-07-2018 08:38 AM

    Hello,

     

    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?

     

    Created filter:

     

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hello,

     

    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.

    Hello Christophe,

     

    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?

     

    Thanks

    I confirm, you don't have to restart anything. You just have to wait (or force) a Global Collection refresh.
