I've been a Meraki MX user since Nov '14 and I think it's a great product but it lacked a community for it's users to collaborate on the direction we want the product to go in with new features. I want this to get the attention of Meraki and hopefully they'll join us in implementing these features.


1/4/16 Update: Meraki has begun responding to various posts!



Right now this site running on the free version of UserEcho so it doesn't have some features I'd like it to have (such as tagging).

Improved event log filtering (some results not even logged)

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
You can't sort or filter the logs very much.  You can only download the 30 results or so to a csv file.  A temporary solution would be to export the entire log file to a csv but the filtering options via the web should be improved.
I've had two cases where the traffic was being blocked by content filtering and a layer 7 rule that weren't even logged.  I figured out the problem but enabling/disabling the features slowly to narrow down the problematic rule.

Primary uplink status alert for Z1

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
I wish the Z1 would alert on primary uplink status change (failover to cellular). All the MX devices have this feature.

Offer configurable WAN failover timers and settings

couch83 12 months ago 0

Right now the meraki devices failover after a 300s waiting period while testing is being done prior to the device switching from WAN1 to WAN2. IN this soft failure situation the customer is having all kinds of issues connecting externally. There should be configurable settings in the device. IN an RDP environment any latency or loss above 3 - 5 seconds and end users start to freeze and get disconnected from sessions. IF soft wan failures due to latency and loss were configurable so you didnt have to wait the full 300 seconds this would be ideal. Fail after 3 missed pings. This way connection based items such as RDP are limited in the outage time they have to take.

Firewall log filtering

Ability to use boolean expressions to search firewall logs for drops based on srcIP, dstIP, or port. Similar to Checkpoint or Palo Alto dashboards.

Show resource usage of MR devices in Dashboard

Owen Pragel 2 years ago 0

Meraki MR APs don't provide any information on how much RAM, CPU, etc are being consumed, which is important for troubleshooting and sizing your deployment.


I know that if you call support, Meraki support reps can see and will provide average CPU load readouts over the last 1, 3, and 15 minutes.

Statistics on site to site VPNs

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago • updated 2 years ago 3
There is only a live view of the VPN latency.  This view should be improved to show historical latency, bandwidth traversing the VPN, up times, etc.

Ability to label specific traffic

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
I use Veeam for my backup and replication.  My bandwidth charts attribute that data as non-web tcp.  I'd like to break that up by port and label the subset of that traffic as Veeam traffic.

Allow users to request access to a blocked URL

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
When reaching a blocked page there should be a link to request the user to access the URL.  This link could ideally trigger an email to a low level admin who could check the site and then click a link in the email to approve it and then notify the user.

Date KB articles

This is a simple/minor request, please date your KB articles so we have a rough idea if they are up to date and relate to the latest firmware. It's weird that they aren't dated.
