Alvarion Wireless Gear Templates [Updated 6-22-2011]

#1 Post by fuzzbawl » Wed Dec 06, 2006 3:54 pm

Greetings to one and all.

The following are Alvarion Templates for the following gear:
- B14/28/54/100 Base Unit
- B14/28/54/100 Remote Bridge
- BreezeAccess 900Mhz and 2.4Ghz Access Units
- BreezeAccess 900Mhz and 2.4Ghz Subscriber Unit
- VL Access Unit
- VL Subscriber Unit

These have been working for us. The BreezeAccess stuff includes the CDEF's to calculate proper RSSI in dBm and Error Rate percentages.

If you have any additions, suggestions, corrections, etc. please let me know! I will update the files if I add anything on my end.

6-22-2011:
Updated the templates for Alvarion firmware 4.5 and up . RSSI for BU, RB and SU units is now displayed along with Noise Floor. Some formatting on graph names and legends has been fixed.

Here are the files for the Alvarion VL gear. I hit the attachment limit on the previous post.

Edited to attach BreezeAccess bash script to show RSSI correctly.

UPDATE 6-22-2011:
See first post in thread for the .zip file which contains all files.

I seem to be missing the shell script to calculate the rssi/dbm. Can you attach that?

Hello fuzzbawl.

Great work!

I've attached the bash script necessary for BreezeAccess RSSI display. I will be working on graph templates for old DS.5800 gear very soon as I need it for some of our older gear. I may also do some graphs for WiMAX gear as well as requested. I'll keep you all posted.

very new to cacti, and I seem to be doing something wrong when trying to import these...

Error: XML: Hash version does not exist.

Can anyone help?

What version of cacti did you use to create those templates?

According to my rpm output I'm running j, however I get this nasty error: Error: XML: Generated with a newer version of Cacti, which makes no sense to me.

I got my problem fixed by upgrading cacti, if anyone has the same issue.

I can't seem to get Signal Strength graph to work, anyone have any idea?

Determined the issue. Upgraded rpms were installed, but I had to go through and run the upgrade scripts to finalize everything. Once I did that everything worked like a charm.

You have to use the bash script on your server to make the BreezeAccess II signal graphs work.

At that, it is expecting the signal strength in dbm, not SNR

I`m trying to make a template for the wimax ubst.

It`s easy getting out single oid data, like base odu temperature, base working transmit power etc.

But then there are the connected subscriber units, how do you get details on these?

I want to graph up/down snr and up/down speed, and monitor uptime on each subscriber unit.

I can`t figure out how to do this, please help :(

Is the Bash script something useable under Windows Server '03/IIS 6? If so, what do I need to install to make it work? If not, is there another method to allow my environment to read RSSI (or dBm) signal strengths out of Alvarion 900 MHz SUs?

Edit: Erm... guess this is related to cygwin, isn't it? Where inside the cygwin directory should the script go? Do I need to make reference to it somewhere, or does cacti find and execute it as needed automatically?

The way to talk to SU's is like this:

[email protected] ([email protected]) and then send the request to the ip of the uBST.

This was a real pain in the ... when I was trying to figure this out, had to sniff the traffic of BreezeLite in the end.
