We are making sort of self-provisioning Portal for our SP that will offer the customers Cisco APs. Our Portal will use CPI API and customers will be able to do some actions for their own APs and SSIDs - change psk, create new ssid, change bandwidth...this we do through deploy_template_through_job and it works fine and fast.
But for some real*time data that we have on WLC (eg connected clients), we have some latency in CPI. For example, if we manually disable client from CPI it is immmediatelly blocked, but in gui it stays for a while - guess it takes some time untill CPI learns from WLC that client is dissaccoss.
Now, my question is which protocol CPI uses for getting this sort of data from WLC - is it https or ssh show ouput? Is there an option to increase the frequency of getting data?
Much of the data reported by the Prime Infrastructure API and GUI is cached network data. The frequency that the data is updated is determined by the configuration of background jobs in the system, so yes, you can increase the frequency. You can consult the Admin Guide for more on the list of jobs, and what their defaults are.
Most of the data collected from WLCs is via SNMP, but it really depends on the implementation of the device package, which varies with each version of the device package, version of device software, and device model. So while I can't say conclusively, it most likely is being collected via SNMP.

What is Network Emulation?
Network emulation is one of the key elements of effective network testing, helping you find problems in-house instead of customer environments. To create such test environments, it would require either physical hardware or ...
If you are a cisco employee, u can test the code using ASR9K devices in lab. I did test on 172.18.87.36 (be connected to cisco vpn).
The use case of the code is that, customer has to everytime manually upload logs and files in SR which are shared by TAC o...
Today there are about six billion things connected to the internet. This number will triple by the year 2020, putting an even greater demand on the network. Thus, companies will need solutions that come from its very foundation – the network.
