We are currently having issues related to power delivery to our APs and it would assist us in finding problem APs if we could see a log (or make an API call?) of which APs have restarted and when. Currently, we have to contact support over phone and have them look at it for us.
ap's are connected to a meraki switch?
your ap's connect the first few ports from the switch?
is it not possible to check the switch port status?
It would need to be an SNMP trap that the device sends when it reboots. Polling wouldn't catch the reboot 99% of the time. It is a brief blip in power that causes the device to restart. I don't see capability for that kind of SNMP trap.
@MacElster usually if I want to see if an AP has rebooted, I search for the event 'Ethernet port carrier change' in the event log. Would that work for you?
I just tried a dashboard reboot. @EClap5 "Ethernet port carrier change'" does not get logged for access points. The graph also does not show any disruption to service.
I don't think there is any way to trap this using only an access point.
Yes, I think there should be a feature to log all devices "booting up".
@PhilipDAththat's interesting. I usually use the event to track when my old boss gets into Dashboard and reboots the AP that he is connected to because it's 'slow'. Just before my first post I searched for the event and it brought up everyone one of my APs in a particular network that had firmware updated/reboot this past weekend.
