I've faced a little annyoing situation: I'm preparing a couple of switches for later deployment. Basically, I'm applying a baseline config, update to the latest firmware (which is annyoing too, will open another thread about this) and put the switch in a shelve for later deployment (for example I'm deploying ES-8-150W when they are actually needed).
Anyway, UNMS will report an outage for those switches, so I would really like to see a feature to put them in some kind of a maintenance or offline mode. This should also influence the site state, which is "disconnected" right now. Should be "Online".
It would be really nice if UNMS gave me a topology view of the network, where I can graphically see what routers and switches are connected to what others, which connections are active (e.g. when STP is used), stats about each connection, LLDP information, etc.
This will of course be most important when EdgeSwitch is also supported, and there's a hundred different ways to build/discover that topology (especially in non-pure-Ubiquiti environments). It's also possible to show different types of topologies - e.g. the pure physical topology, the L2 topology, L3 topology (with OSPF/BGP info), etc. Of course, I'd love to have all of them available
Worst case, if you all can't prioritize building the automatic topology discovery, being able to manually specify the physical topology and just see its drawing and stats about the links would still be nice.
Ability to store data is invaluable in resolving client issues, (and for planning purposes). I have a suggestion to simplify the data presentation.
1) Default view to be as currently is (hourly)
2) Instead of Day, Week, Month and year which have pre defined group, have a start (date selector) and end (date selector) to define range. (drop down can have pre selected week, month, etc)
3) have a "group by" filter, so presented graph picks weekly averages, monthly averages, etc etc.
4: Export data (either pdf or xml)
This fine grained filter covers a lot more use cases than the default filters.
In a situation where a customer radio has been monitored by UNMS for a period of time, then has a radio changed, a new device is now tracked and the historical data from the other device is no longer synced.
If you leave the old device attached to the client (to keep historical data) - the customer will show as "inactive" in the map and when you click into the client you can see the inactive and active device.
Is there a way to migrate historical data to the new device, or to leave the old device attached for historical data but no longer have it shown as inactive because it technically no longer exists?
I'm okay with the following suggestion FROM @UBNT-Radek
We would probably create a status Archived which can be added to a device, and it would cause the device to be ignored when determining the health of a site/client. Would that be helpful for your purposes?
It would be great if DPI information from the EdgeRouter could be sent to the UNMS controller, kind of like UniFi. Since this is supposed to be a carrier-grade platform, it would be great for ISPs to see how people are hogging up their bandwidth.
We have installed about 50 Amplifi routers and remote management of these via the Amplifi App is a bit ridiculous. And the Amplifi Controller is designed for an end user.
So, are there plans to manage Amplifi routers via UNMS?
I want to be able to manage and rotate out secure device passwords to all my managed devices from the centralized UNMS console. Ideally this would be a Role Based Access level that an admin has to grant someone/maybe require MFA.
UNMS could also offer a "security checkup" that helps automate and enforce best practices for device confgiruation, and gives you a nice Green/Yellow/Red score meter of how you are doing based on best practices.
Would be perfect to configure email alerts like aircontrol
For e.x. if download rate > 100 Mbit/s create email alert
Or if Lan speed = 10Mbit/s create email alert
It would help us CATCH problems before they arise.
Also a 6 hour or 12 hour statistics would show more on what's going on. For e.x. a 30 minutes saturation of bandwidth is not visible on the 24 hour graph thus you cannot check the peak times.
I would welcome the option to add more structured info to sites, for examle
- enclosure (type/size)
- power source type / capacity + age
- battery type, count, age
I guess it could be called inventory. I just need to know what non-UBNT stuff we have on site ..
I'd suggest to introduct two areas to save a specific version of a firmware: a different area different from automatic and manual areas.
1) area to save manually a fw without auto upgrade, with function "move fw to ...." or "save fw to favourites..." (for ex. in case of tests)
2) an automatic area to save FWs already used in existing devices (for ex. in case to fw restore)
both areas must work with official and beta relases.
Would like to see some feature to deploy VLANs (and probably other config elements like MSTP) to a group of switches. Get's a little boring to create VLANs on 20+ switches
I'd like to see a .deb install and maybe someday a repo just like Unifi and Unifi-Video have.
I am not an expert on Docker and its pros and cons but there seems to be a lot of call for this type of install, the forum thread had 51 replies before it was locked, and there is some activity on github as well. With all the activity I am surprised it isn't in Feature Requests so I thought I would add it.
For my personal feelings, part of it is just resistance to change, I am used to using .debs and the repos for Unifi and Unifi-Video and just don't want to change. I also don't understand Docker well enough to feel comfortable deploying it. I spent some time reading up on it and it is really simple in a lot of ways but some of the concerns people have are quite complicated.
Under settings, UNMS, and firmware settings, it would be extremely useful to have two more toggles, one to download (or not download) CS versions for firmware and a second to download beta versions of firmware.
It would be great if there would be an option to easily perform a speed test between any of the devices and UNMS. Especially when the UNMS instance is located somewhere away from the network this is great to measure "real" internet speeds.
Even nicer would be if it a bunch (or all) devices could be selected for a speedtest and they would run in serial. Maybe the dashboard for each device can show the last speedtest result/date-time.
Ideally a speedtest would be ran for each devices between 3am and 6am, in such way that every client is tested at least once/week.
Add management and monitoring of NVR's and cameras to UNMS
- The ability to update the NVR to latest version UniFi-Video software
- Status of cameras (connected or disconnected)
- Ability to update and assign static IP's to cameras
- Status of NVR (up/down, full hard drive, etc.)
