Aruba Network Analytic Engine scripts introduction

An Aruba Network Analytics Engine script is a Python script that defines which switch resources to monitor and, optionally, rules that define what actions to take when certain conditions are true.

Examples of tasks a script can define include the following:

  • Monitoring average CPU usage and sending a system log message when the CPU usage is greater than 70% for 5 minutes.

  • Monitoring the connection state of a particular BGP neighbor and executing a CLI command when the connection state transitions from UP to DOWN.

A script is used to create an agent, which is a specifically-configured executable instance of a script on a switch. A single script can be the template for many different agents.
