WiFi Incidents

WiFi Incidents are created when the percentage of tests conducted by assigned agents passes the user-defined threshold.  This type of incident reporting is intended to help you identify issues with wireless performance.

WiFi Performance Metrics

The reported WiFi performance metrics on this panel include link quality, signal strength, bit rate, and channel.  Data from all assigned wireless agents is displayed in these graphs.  Above, a ring graph displaying portion of assigned agents experiencing incidents and a performance distribution histogram also serve as filters.  The agent list shows currently assigned wireless agents and BSSIDs

WiFi Alerts

The Alerts section displays recent alerts related to the wireless agents assigned to the WiFi network.  The graph displays the count of alerts over time, and the log displays the alerts.

Note:  The log only displays alerts that have been opened or closed during the current time window.  The recent alerts graph displays ongoing alerts during the time period.  Due to the nature of the data, it is possible for the recent alerts graph to show ongoing alerts while the log remains empty.
