I very often use two Ruckus Unleashed APs (meshed) as wireless bridges. Multiple other devices are connected (via a switch) to each one of those wireless bridges.
Currently my monitoring system pings each device from the router on site. I would like to ping each Ruckus AP from the device that serves as its uplink. If the Ruckus AP is plugged into the router, I'm already set. However, I am trying to figure out a way to monitor the Ruckus APs that use another Ruckus AP as the uplink. To do this I would need to run a command on that AP.
I've seen the ping command via the CLI, and I am sure I could get that working with a script. I have two questions:
Thanks for reading!
Please refer my response below.
If this is super critical for you, try Raspberry pi zero W with a USB to Ethernet adaptor and configure it to connect to mesh AP directly on AP's free eth port. With some scripting on Pi, you can automate the ping.
Note: Using Raspberry Pi for this task is just a suggestion, not a officially supported method.
