Cisco WLC monitoring

A wireless LAN controller (WLC) is a wireless architecture device that helps manage access points, facilitating the connection of all devices to a company's network.

With our tool, you can easily track the connected access points, analyze the radios, and check the number of access points connected to a single SSID. Plus, our WLC monitoring tool is designed to verify if any rogue access points are connected to the WLC. But that's not all! Our tool also provides instant alerts based on the thresholds that you set for each of these parameters.

Give our WLC monitoring tool a try now and see how it can simplify your monitoring process.

How does Site24x7 monitor Cisco WLCs?

Our Cisco WLC monitoring tool uses SNMP to collect data from your network through an On-Premise Poller, which is easy to set up. You can specify an IP range or use classless inter-domain routing to discover devices in your network. You can even create discovery rules and device and interface filters to fine-tune the discovery process.

Once you've added the On-Premise Poller, it will start collecting data such as the traffic, CPU utilization, memory utilization, number of connected clients, and other performance information from your devices. The SSIDs in your network will be categorized and listed under the SSID(s) section (if authorized) or the Rogue Access Points section (if unauthorized). The access points are listed by Type and Channel in the Radios section, making it easy for you to manage your network.

Additionally, you can also set thresholds for the Access Points, Radios, Rogue Access Points, and SSID(s) as required and receive alerts on threshold breaches. With our Cisco WLC monitoring tool, you can breathe easy knowing that your network is organized, secure, and under control.
