Trends, Statistics, and Top 5 APs

This section of the AP Group Summary dashboard graphically represents the APs/Stations statistics and trends that belong to a selected AP 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 APs/Stations are graphically charted as follows:

High Channel Utilization APs

Provides the top five APs 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 APs in the groups of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Click on the AP name to navigate to the Access Point dashboard.

High Retry APs

Provides the top five APs in the network that have an average retry percentage greater than the Average Retries (%) setting as configured. The chart displays the name and the corresponding average retries in percentages of APs in the groups of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Click on the AP name to navigate to the Access Point dashboard.

High Loss APs

Provides the top five APs in the network that have an average loss percentage greater than the Average Loss (%) setting as configured. The chart displays the name and the corresponding average loss in percentages of APs in the groups of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Click on the AP name to navigate to the Access Point dashboard.

Top Applications and APs By Usage

This panel provides the summary of highly used applications within the selected AP Group and also the top five APs with the highest average throughput within the AP Group.

Stations and Throughput

This panel displays a plotting of the total number of stations and the throughput against time. The graph displays the aggregate Number of Stations connected to the APs within the selected AP Group and the average Throughput (Mbps) at a given time.

Each bar represents the maximum number of stations connected to the APs within the selected AP Group and the average throughput during that interval. Hover over each of the bars to view the station count and throughput during that time interval.

Low Signal Stations

This panel is a trend graph that displays the total number of stations in the network 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 network 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.

High Loss APs Trend

This panel provides the total count of APs in the network that have an average loss percentage greater than the Average Loss (%) setting as configured in the AP group threshold settings. Hover over each of the sections to see the maximum number of connected APs and the total number of high loss APs.

AP Tx and Rx

This panel is a trend graph that displays the average Tx and Rx utilization (Mbps) of all the access points in the AP group.

Access Points

This panel displays the details of all APs in the AP group that satisfy the threshold configuration settings and the applied filters.

Click on the AP name to navigate to the Access Points dashboard.

Stations

This panel displays the details of all stations connected to each of the APs in the AP group that satisfy the threshold configuration settings, and the applied filters.

Click on the Station name to navigate to the Stations dashboard.
