This KB article is meant to distribute the Cisco Meraki monitoring template and services, and documents all required deployment steps. Once you’ve completed all the steps in the document, your N-central® server will be optimally configured for Meraki, to help you minimize the steps to onboard new Meraki environments, and standardize how monitoring and alerting is deployed within your N-central environment. This document is intended for a technical audience familiar with administering both N-central and Cisco Meraki devices. Your N-central server must be running at least N-central version 2020.1.

This package includes the following items:

  • A filter that finds Meraki devices. This filter can be imported into your N-central server and will be used to automatically assign monitoring to your customer’s Meraki cloud environments.
  • 11 Custom Services. The Services including the word “Device” focus on device-level monitoring, and services including the word “Organization” focus on organization-level monitoring:
    • Meraki – Device Cumulative Bandwidth
