Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

What is the status with these Devices. I was under the impression the poor performance was due to my configurations but that is not the case per JTAC. Any updates or updated firmware fixes?

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

No updates from Juniper yet (as far a I know)  !

All they can suggest is to switch to the (expensive) WLC platform! :smileysad:

 

Customers are not amused as you cn imagine.....

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

I'm running 11.something on an SRX 210, plus the latest AX411 firmware.

 

Everything seemed to get much better after I told the SRX to reset the AP every day at 0300.

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

Your comment is spot on. I don't reboot daily - just once once a week, but it is pretty obvious that regular reboots and a prerequisite to having a happy, functioning AX411 AP.

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

What is the script your using to reboot the AP's @ 3am? Could you post it?

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

Can I second that request?

I have to get someone to pull the plug on them once in a while.

Is there a command to reboot remotely the AX411 or a script for the SRX?

Thanks!

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

@Juniper support: is it normal behaviour ??? Wouldn't it be nice (not more then normal?) that some updates are released ?? is this product EOL ??

 

In the meantime, I would also like to get a copy of the script from any of you guys if possible ??

Re: AX411 - terrible response times - terrible connectivity

hi all, 

 

I don't have any experience with AX411, but  'request wlan access-point restart XXX' seems to be the way to restart AP.

If it works, simple event policy may be used to restart AP once a day:

 

event-options {
    generate-event {
        every-day-3am time-of-day "03:00:00 +0200";
    }
    policy restart-ap {
        events every-day-3am;
        then {
            execute-commands {
                commands {
                    "request wlan access-point restart AP-Name";
                }
                inactive: user-name admin;
                inactive: output-filename restart-ap-log;
                inactive: destination local-flash;
                inactive: output-format text;
            }
        }
    }
    inactive: destinations {
        local-flash {
            archive-sites {
                /var/tmp;
            }
        }
    }
}

 

Set time-of-day you like (UTC offset added automatically), activate/modify  the 'inactive' commands if you want to see request command(s) output (do you really need it ? I'd be careful with the number of files if using local flash !)

 

If one wants to restart APs once a XXX days, we need to write custom event-script. To make it once a week, the simple solution is to use the policy with day-event script from junoscriptorium:

Excellent. I knew it was something simple but honestly forgot all about the event-options.... Thanks!
