I would like to make a request which I believe would benefit the community when managing there network.
When you select a tower it would be great if when viewing the list of AP's you could see what Frequency they are operating at and there channel width. Making them sort by order would also be great with this feature.
I have attached an image to better explain. If there is already a way please let me know.
Also when selecting Statistics it would be great when you turned on the Connected AP option that not only does it list the MAC address but also the SSID of the AP for easy recognition.
Maybe have 2 options too turn on, connected AP MAC and Connected AP SSID, the only time I need to know a MAC other than when adding to our systems is when it has died and need to perform a RMA.
Thanks for your time.
Monitor > Statistics. Click on a tower in the tree. Change the mode in the statistics pane from General to Wireless (the four icons on the top right, second one). That shows you the frequency, Tx power, channel bandwidth, downlink ratio and max range. Adding SSID for ePMP and color code for PMP to that table would be a good idea.
One thing I've noticed is that column sorting does not work for PMP frame utilization. That would be nice to have fixed. Looking over the whole network, that's definitely one thing I want to see: any APs hitting near 100% frame utilization.
Sorting issue will be fixed and should be available in the next release.
Don't know how I missed that, but I still think it would be great to have it on the Dashboard page also where I showed in the image.
I agree - sorting and viewing things any way possible are simply queries. The more options we have the better. Especially when managing an orchestra of thousands of devices. Situational awareness is enhanced 10 fold when you have visual aids.
