REST-API-based Cisco Meraki monitoring

Monitoring the health and performance of Cisco Meraki devices helps ensure proper network operations. Acquire real-time availability monitoring for your Cisco Meraki devices from the cloud using REST APIs. Eliminate the need to install an On-Premise Poller, directly query from your Meraki APIs, and stay on top of your Meraki devices.

Note: You can still monitor your Cisco Meraki devices via SNMP using the Site24x7 On-Premise Poller.

Cisco Meraki availability monitoring

  • Monitor the availability of your Cisco Meraki switches, wireless devices, cameras, and security appliances.
  • Track the response time and packet loss of your security appliances.

Cisco Meraki alerts

  • Obtain better control over your Cisco Meraki devices by receiving alerts when your devices go down.
  • Configure thresholds for key performance metrics.
  • Receive alerts through email, SMS, and voice calls.
  • You can also receive alerts through third-party ITSM and collaboration tools your organization uses.

Re: REST-API-based Cisco Meraki monitoring

Has anyone reported frequent flapping of the Meraki API root service? It has become almost unusable over the last 3 months and we have been unable to edit the thresholds to keep the notification stream accurate and relevant.

Other than the root service, the remainder of the stock Meraki API defaults work great and endpoints (devices within the Meraki tenancy) are unaffected by this.

Re: Re: REST-API-based Cisco Meraki monitoring

Hi there,

This intermittent reachability issue could be due to the unavailability of the Meraki API endpoint. You can ignore these alerts, as this isn't critical or related to the status of your actual devices.

Currently, there is no option to discern why the Meraki Organization monitor is down. We are working on an update where you can set a threshold to reduce the severity of alerts or skip it altogether when the Meraki Organization API is not reachable.

Till then, you can configure your preferences in Meraki Organization monitor's Notification Profile and opt to receive alerts if the monitor is down after two or more consecutive polls.

Note: We recommend adding a new notification profile instead of editing an existing one. Editing a notification profile will apply the changes to all the monitors using the same profile.

To add a new notification profile:
1. Log in to Site24x7.
2. Navigate to Admin> Configuration Profiles> Notification Profile.
3. Under the Notification Delay section, select an option to delay the notification after a few failures instead of receiving immediate alerts.

Hope this helps. Do let us know if you wish to add any other features. If feasible, we'll include it in our future releases.

Feel free to add your feedback as comments below.

Best,
Rama
