  • AP Status
  • Active, Down or missing, up for over 24 hours, rebooted in past 24 hours

  • Client Count Over Time
  • Viewable for past hour, day, or 30 days

  • Top Client Count Per-AP
  • Separate widgets for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands

  • Top Wireless Interference
  • Separate widgets for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, requires spectrum analysis to be enabled on the radios

  • Login Failures
  • The time, SSID, host name, and username for failed login attempts. The widget also displays the AP name and AP group of FortiAP units with failed login attempts.

  • WiFi Channel Utilization
  • Three views allowing users to view top 10-20 most and least utilized channels for each AP radio and a third histogram view showing counts for utilization

The list of active clients also shows MAC address entries (similar to the WiFi Client Monitor page), making client information easy to view when opening the Active Client widget.
