How to monitor if Access Points are running - Monitor health of network
Posted on 2011-02-24
I would like to add multiple access points to a private network. I am not trying to hop from one point to another but thinking that I want to create a mesh type network so people can move around and have wide coverage. We will have cat6 ethernet cables ran to each location and the signals should be overlapping each other. We will have about 8-10 access points and I would like to remotely monitor the heath of the network and that all of the AP are up and running. Better yet, it would be great to be notified if there is a problem. I was thinking about using Open-Mesh. Does this sound like a good approach or heading the wrong direction. Suggestions.
