1. Monitoring Applications Using UniFi Network AI for Traffic Analysis.


    To monitor applications using UniFi Network AI for traffic analysis, you'll first need a UniFi controller set up and an application to monitor the network traffic. With Pulumi, we can use the unifi provider to configure network-related objects within a UniFi Controller.

    Please note that setting up and managing a UniFi controller with Pulumi assumes you have access to a controller and appropriate credentials. Pulumi can manage resources within UniFi, but it doesn't install the UniFi software itself.

    The setup process would generally involve creating a new network within your UniFi Controller, which will allow you to monitor the traffic that goes through that network using UniFi's built-in tools and display it through UniFi Network AI's dashboard.

    Here's a program that creates a network in UniFi using Pulumi:

    import pulumi import pulumi_unifi as unifi # Initialize a new UniFi Network. You need to replace 'your_site' with the actual site name you are using in your UniFi Controller. # The purpose of the network (e.g., 'corporate', 'guest', etc.) can be specified based on your use case. network = unifi.Network("example-network", site="your_site", purpose="corporate", subnet="", domain_name="example.com", dhcpd_enabled=True) # Export the network ID so that it can be easily retrieved and referenced. pulumi.export("network_id", network.id)

    This Pulumi program sets up a new network in your UniFi environment. You will need to replace 'your_site' with your actual site identifier from the UniFi Controller and modify the purpose, subnet, and domain_name with the values that suit your organization's needs.

    Additional parameters, such as dhcpd_enabled, are set to True, assuming you want DHCP enabled on this network. In a real-world scenario, you might need to configure many more properties such as VLAN IDs, WAN settings, etc., according to your organizational policies and the network design you are implementing.

    After creating this network, traffic going through it will start to be monitored automatically by UniFi, and the data can be analyzed with UniFi Network AI's capabilities.

    Please ensure that your Pulumi program is running under an environment that has access to the UniFi controller and appropriate permissions to create and manage resources. You generally run this Pulumi program using the Pulumi CLI after you have installed it, authenticated with your chosen cloud provider, and set up the Pulumi unifi provider configuration with access details for your UniFi controller.

    You can run Pulumi programs with the following steps (after installing Pulumi and configuring it):

    1. Navigate to the directory where you have your __main__.py file saved.
    2. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy your resources.

    The Pulumi CLI takes care of applying your program to create the resources in your environment. After running the command, follow the prompts from the Pulumi CLI to complete the deployment. Once deployed, you can head over to your UniFi Controller UI to see the newly created network and begin monitoring its traffic with UniFi Network AI.
