One of our clients have about 11 Cisco airnet Wireless Access points in the whole building. and periodically about 2 to 3 of them go down. I am able to html into them and find that the 2.4 radio is going down. the 5.0ghz radio allways stays on.

Im trying to figure out how to set the access points up to sent an email to us whenever it goes down.

Anyone know if this could be done?

Sounds like a power issue: Aironets disable radios if they decide (by CDP or LLDP-MED) they don't have enough power.

The standard Linux snmptrapd has a default trap2email command, which sends you raw traps in email. This can work if the AP's do send traps when the radio goes down (they should).

But I'd try to solve the root-cause on the long run.

is there a program that can be used to monitor all the Access points and send out emails to us whenever a radio goes down?
