Sorry I'm new in this, as all our Cisco AP are managed by our network vendor, how do I tell our network vendor what to do, as looked at the link above I do not have a clue what to do

For future reference, if you have SolarWinds NPM you can use the snmpwalk utility to see which OIDs respond, and then drill down to the values you want to monitor from there. If you have a typical installation, the utility is found in C:\program files(x86)\solarwinds\orion\snmpwalk.exe

You put in the IP of the device and the SNMP string and the utility will walk the whole device and save the output to a text file that you can dig through.

Solarwinds support provided me below instruction, and it works


Can you include the OID when you snmpwalk on the device? You can check the OID of Cisco AP here:

http://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/4037/Wireless+OIDs+Polled+in+Orion+NPM

Example: you want to monitor the SSID, the OID is 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.272.1.1.1.6.1.2 (based on the link I've provided)

$ snmpwalk -v1 -c Read 10.199.201.181 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.272.1.1.1.6.1.2

Check if the OID is supported. If not, NPM won't be able to display this information.
