Overall Network Statistics

The network statistics section of the dashboard provides the overall statistical details of Controllers, Access Points, Stations, and Alarms within the wireless network. The details are displayed in the form of colorful widgets. The available widgets are as follows:

Widgets

Description

Alarms Provides the total count of alarms raised. Click on the number of critical alarms to view the detailed summary of alarms raised, displayed in a pop-up modal window. Information like Date/Time, Alarm Name, Category, Fdn, Controller ID, Message, and so on is displayed.
Stations Provides the total count of stations connected to an AP. Click on the number of wireless/wired stations to view the detailed summary of stations, displayed in a pop-up modal window. Information like Station MAC Address, Station IP Address, Station IPv6 Address, Essid, Channel, SNR, RF band, OS type, RX rate, TX rate, Controller ID, AP ID, Interface Index, and so on is displayed.
Controllers Provides the total count of offline/inactive controllers. Click on the number of offline/inactive controllers to view the detailed summary of controllers, displayed in a pop-up modal window. Information like Controller, Description, Model, Software Version, Management State, Last Time, and so on is displayed.
Access Points Provides the total count of offline/unknown APs in the network. Click on the number of offline/unknown APs to view the detailed summary of APs, displayed in a pop-up modal window. Information like AP Name, IP Address, MAC Address, Model, Connectivity Mode, Software Version, Location, Last Time, Controller Name, and so on is displayed.
Rogue Devices Provides the total count of wired and wireless rogue devices (APs and stations) in the network. Click on the number of wireless/wired rogue devices to view the detailed summary of the rogue devices, displayed in a pop-up modal window. Information like Controller Name, Rogue MAC Address, Rogue Type, BSSID, Channel, SSID, AP Reported, Location, Date, Time, and so on is displayed.

The dashboard provides threshold configuration and filtering capability for APs and Stations within the network to display statistical charts. The configurable threshold settings are Average Airtime Utilization (%), Average Loss (%), Average Retries (%), and Average SNR (Dbm). Depending upon the threshold settings configurations, the information about APs and Stations is graphically charted as follows:

APs/Stations

Description

High Loss APs Provides the total count of APs in the network that have an average loss percentage greater than the Average Loss (%) setting as configured. Click on the graphical representation to navigate to the AP Groups dashboard with the same filter applied.
High Retry APs Provides the total count of APs in the network that have an average retry percentage greater than the Average Retries (%) setting as configured. Click on the graphical representation to navigate to the AP Groups dashboard with the same filter applied.
Low Signal Stations Provides the total count of stations in the network that have an average SNR lesser than the Average SNR (Dbm) setting as configured. Click on the graphical representation to navigate to the Station Groups dashboard with the same filter applied.
High Utilization Stations Provides the total count of stations in the network that have an averageairtime utilization greater than the Average Airtime Utilization (%) setting as configured. Click on the graphical representation to navigate to the Station Groups dashboard with the same filter applied.
