Mesh Options : Mesh monitor duration

Hi 

Can anyone shed any light on the what the "Mesh monitor duration" actually does, and what the duration (5m-60ms) means?  Then theres the "Mesh recovery interval" which suggests 5m-30m.

I keep having mesh APS drop off the system for 30minutes at a time and im wondering if any of these mystical settings could assist in speeding up mesh reconnection.

Thanks

Hi,

Below is brief explanation of configurable parameters available on mesh client WLAN profile:

  • Mesh Monitor Duration configures the interval at which the ping is sent for the configured host.
  • Mesh Recovery Interval configures the interval for the consecutive ping loss seen after which the mesh link is considered to be down and a reconnect is attempted.

For example: One can configure the duration and interval both to be the same at which case the first ping loss itself will result in triggering the reconnect.
