Check_MK, standalone or as part of OMD (The Open Monitoring Distribution), has built-in support for monitoring AeroHive wireless infrastructure through a Hive Manager. It uses the on-premise Hive Manager in order to collect information from devices registered to the Hive Manager.
Note for HMOL users
Because the agent uses the Hive Manager API, HMOL environments are not supported, as they do not allow the HM API to be enabled.
By default, HM API is turned off. Log on to the Hive Manager using an admin account. Go to:
