Question
  • What MIBs can I poll to find the number of users per AP?
Environment
  • IdentiFi wireless
  • SNMP
  • MIB
  • Polling
  • AP Name 
  • Number of users per AP
  • NetSight Console
  • FlexView
Answer
Direct MIB Poll: 
The user count is at: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.2.2.1.14
 
snmpwalk -v3 -u identifi -a SHA -A extreme123456789 -l authpriv -x AES -X extreme123456789 aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.2.2.1.14

iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.2.2.1.14.3 = Gauge32: 2
iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.2.2.1.14.4 = Gauge32: 1

The AP name is at: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.1.2.1.2

Note these OID's return active as well as inactive AP's.
 
snmpwalk -v3 -u identifi -a SHA -A extreme123456789 -l authpriv -x AES -X extreme123456789 aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.1.2.1.2
iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.1.2.1.2.3 = STRING: "AP3825i-test"
iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.5.1.2.1.2.4 = STRING: "AP3805i-test"

The AP name is also at: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12

This data returns an AP entry per user.
snmpwalk -v3 -u identifi -a SHA -A extreme123456789 -l authpriv -x AES -X extreme123456789 aaa.bbb.cccc 1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12

iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12.6.0.34.176.109.77.255 = STRING: "AP3805i-test"
iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12.6.64.176.250.100.72.94 = STRING: "AP3825i-test"
iso.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.3.6.2.1.12.6.252.194.222.201.188.174 = STRING: "AP3825i-test"

NetSight Console also has this information available in predefined FlexViews that are available with any NetSight Console installation:

The Wireless Cleints.tpl can be polled and updated in intervals of 10,20,30 seconds. It will display the following:
