Getting ready to install a new B24 link, been working on monitoring side. So far I’ve not found any way to remotely poll the actual IP capacity up/down. I can pull the PHY up/down (either per-stream via SNMP or total via API) but not the actual expected max data throughput. What am I missing?
Web UI for example may give me:
PHY Tx/Rx (Mbps): 1040 / 1170
MAC Tx/Rx (Mbps): 624 / 234
But other than writing a script that will log into the webUI via HTTP(s) and scrape the MAC Tx/Rx I can’t find any way to monitor capacity. The API docs seem to indicate that TxRate and RxRate are what I want, but when actually retrieved from the radios they are always exactly the same as Tx_Phys_Rate and Rx_Phys_Rate.
An unequivocal pair of values (up/down) via SNMP representing the expected IP throughput capacities would really be welcome.
PS - it’s annoying that there’s no MIB for the B24. Took me a couple days to figure out that the B5 MIB was repurposed for these radios. (and many fields include ‘BFIVE’ in the name - not a problem, just personally annoying)
