Supported IAP Events

Aruba Central provides an Events dashboard for viewing the events triggered from Instant Access Points (IAPs), clients, switches, and gateways.

The following table lists the AP events that are supported in Aruba Central:

Table 1: AP Events

Radio Radar Detected

802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. RadarRadio Detection and Ranging. Radar is an object-detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. detected on channel [Channel].

Radio Radar Cleared

802.11 Radar cleared on channel [Channel].

Radio Tx Hang

802.11 Radio Tx hanged on channel [Channel].

Radio Tx Clear

802.11 Radio Tx cleared on channel [Channel].

Radio 40MHz Intolerance

40MHz Intolerance observed on channel [Channel].

Radio Cancel 40MHz Intolerance

40MHz Intolerance cleared on channel [Channel].

Radio 40MHz Align

40MHz aligned on channel [Channel].

Radio ARM Interference

ARMAdaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. Interference detected on channel [Channel].

Radio ARM Invalid Channel

ARM invalid channel [Channel].

Radio ARM Error Threshold Exceeded

Radio errors threshold exceeded on channel [Channel].

Radio ARM Noise Threshold Exceeded

Radio noise threshold exceeded.

Radio ARM Empty Channel

ARM empty channel.

Radio ARM Rogue Containment Triggered

Rogue containment triggered.

Radio ARM Decreased Power

Radio output power decreased to [EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna.] dBmDecibel-Milliwatts. dBm is a logarithmic measurement (integer) that is typically used in place of mW to represent receive-power level. AMP normalizes all signals to dBm, so that it is easy to evaluate performance between various vendors..

Radio ARM Increased Power

Radio output power increased to [EIRP] dBm.

Radio RADAR Turn Off Radio

Radar detected radio up.

Radio ARM Turn On Radio

Radar detected radio down.

Radio ARM Channel Quality Threshold Exceeded

Radio channel quality threshold exceeded

Radio ARM Dynamic BW

Channel width set to channel [Channel].

Radio ARM Interference CCA

Channel width set to channel [Channel].

Radio Freeze

Radio stopped service.

Radio Un-Freeze

Radio resumed service.

Mesh Link Up

Mesh link established to Portal [Portal Device MAC].

Mesh Link Down

Mesh link to Portal [Portal Device MAC] is down.

VPN IPSec Tunnel Up

VPNVirtual Private Network. VPN enables secure access to a corporate network when located remotely. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security, and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two. IPSec Tunnel to Gateway peer [Peer Device Hostname] ([Peer Device IP]) is up.

VPN IPSec Tunnel Down

VPN IPSec Tunnel to Gateway peer [Peer Device Hostname] ([Peer Device IP]) is down.

VPN GRE Tunnel Up

VPN L3 GREGeneric Routing Encapsulation. GRE is an IP encapsulation protocol that is used to transport packets over a network. Tunnel to Gateway peer [Peer Device Hostname] ([Peer Device IP]) is up.

VPN GRE Tunnel Down

VPN L3 GRE Tunnel to Gateway peer [Peer Device Hostname] ([Peer Device IP]) is down.

WLAN SSID Scheduled Active

SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. [SSID] scheduled activation.

WLAN SSID Scheduled De-active

SSID [SSID] scheduled deactivation.
