Trends, Statistics, and Top 5 Stations

This section of the Stations Group dashboard graphically represents the Stations statistics and trends that belong to a selected Stations Group. By default, the trend graphs display data for the last two hours. Depending upon the threshold settings configurations and filters, and the panels selected to be displayed, the Stations are graphically charted as follows:

Channel Utilization

Provides the top five stations in the network that have an average channel utilization greater than the Average Channel Utilization (%) setting as configured. The chart displays the name and the corresponding average channel utilization in percentages of stations in the groups of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Click on a station name to navigate to the Stations dashboard with the same filter applied.

Applications and Stations

This panel provides the summary of highly used applications and the associated stations within the selected Stations Group, and also the top five stations with the highest average throughput within the Stations Group.

Stations by SNR

This panel groups stations based on the Average SNR setting as configured in the filter criteria and lists the top five stations within the group with the lowest average SNR. The stations are classified into Excellent, Good, Fair, and Bad categories based on their SNR.

Hover over the bars to view the number of stations in each of the categories. Click on a station name to navigate to the Stations dashboard.

Stations by Retries

This panel groups the stations based on the Average Retries (%) setting as configured in the filter criteria and lists the top five stations within the group with the highest average retries. The chart displays the name and the corresponding maximum average retries in percentages of stations in the groups of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Low Signal Stations

This panel is a trend graph that displays the total number of stations in the selected Stations Group having low SNR. SNR is defined as the signal strength relative to the background noise.

Hover over each of the intervals on the bar graph to see a summary of the maximum number of stations connected and the total number of low signal stations as per the average SNR as configured. You can configure the threshold for Average SNR from the available filter options. The graph is plotted based on the configurations.

High Loss Stations

This panel is a trend graph that displays the total number of stations in the selected Stations Group having a High Loss. High Loss is defined as the percentage of the number 802.11 unicast packets transmitted for which no 802.11 acknowledgment is received, which is greater than 40%.

Hover over each of the intervals on the bar graph to see a summary of the maximum number of stations connected and the total number of high loss stations as per the average loss percentage as configured. You can configure the threshold for Average Loss (%) from the available filter options. The graph is plotted based on the configurations.

Stations Tx and Rx

This panel is a trend graph that displays the average Tx and Rx utilization (Mbps) of all the stations in the selected Stations Group.

Stations

This panel displays the details of all the stations in the selected Stations Group that satisfy the threshold configuration settings and the applied filters. Click on the station name to navigate to the Stations dashboard.
