Connectivity Alerts

Following are the connectivity alerts that you can configure for notification over Webhooks. Click on an alert to see its description and JSON payload:

DNS Delay Detected

Generates an alert when clients experience significant delays in response from the DNS server. Set the severity values to generate an alert if the percentage of delay from the DNS server exceeds the threshold value. The Duration field displays the duration after which the alert is generated. The default value is 30 minutes. You can add additional rule(s) for this alert.

DNS Failure Detected

Generates an alert when wireless APs experience a high number of connection failures with the DNS server. Set the severity values to generate an alert if the DNS failure percentage exceeds the threshold value. The Duration field displays the duration after which the alert is generated. The default value is 30 minutes. You can add additional rule(s) for this alert.

Authentication Delay Detected

Generates an alert when there is excessive delay in the client authentication process with the AP in the network. Authentication failures include the following:

  • Wi-Fi security key-exchange failures
