  1. Add mac/phy errors as a percentage of total packets to RF Health report.

    The "Most Mac/Phy Errors" tables in the RF Health report are nice, but it would also be nice to report on these errors as a percentage of total packets.

      MAC/PHY errors aren’t linear with the amount of traffic. It gets a little complicated because the number of errors can vary drastically when you have clients vs none based on how the radio tunes itself.

      • Allow user to update floor plan in VisualRF easily

        Currently VisualRF does not allow you to update a floor plan. You have to delete the floor plan, then recreate by importing new floor plan. This is tedious in an enviroment where floor plan changes yearly.

          We have heard this request from a few customers. It would be a large change to the fundamental architecture of VRF and would likely require users to update the location of each AP anyway since the whitespace/scale is likety to be different.

        • AMP should retrieve firewall logs from Controller and correlate logs.

          AMP should retrieve firewall logs from Controller and correlate the logs.So We can review which user or IP consume how many bandwith for a service( http with source and destination IP )in specific time range.

                • Trigger for total user count on controller

                  I have an odd licensing situation and would like to keep an eye on the number of users associated with a particular controller -- not the number of users on any one AP associated with that controller. I tried configuring this and it should be alerting me now (I set the trigger very low for testing), but as the field was "AP User Count" ... I don't think I've configured what I actually wanted.

                          Currently, we are focused on general support of switches through standard MIB functionality. If there is any key functionality that is missing (like MAC address collection for rogue AP detection and upstream device identification), please open a TAC case.

                          All of the date formats are in MM/DD/YY. Wouldn't it be nice for those not in the US to see the date in reports etc as DD/MM/YY.

                          • Provide action button to permit copying of created report definitions.

                            Presently in the page listing report definitions, only two actions are provided: Run and Delete. However, it is frequently desirable to take the same report format (Daily Capacity or Network Usage, for instance) and apply it against multiple groups or folders.

                            Presently, each such definition must be created from scratch and all the fields entered anew.

                            Please provide a Copy function button for a selected report definition. The copy can then be renamed and the desired individual fields in the definition modified, but the bulk of fields whcih may apply folder-to-folder or group-to-group do not have to be re-entered each…

                                      • Discover users from Aruba controllers that do not manage APs

                                        Airwave does not currently report users from Aruba controllers that do not directly terminate APs. I have two Aruba controllers as guest controllers/captive portals which do not terminate APs. Airwave cannot report on the guest users that are authenticated on those controllers as MMS can.

                                        Airwave does pick up those guest users on the controller they are getting their guest wireless services from, however those controllers don't have user information for those users, but it does know what AP/controller they are on, where they are, and what their MAC address is. The guest controller doesn't know where they are, but…

                                        • Restrict report periods to data that is available

                                          For example: User Session report for last month will not provide any data if the User Association History is set to 2 weeks. Data is already aged out, so report comes up blank anyway. Why not just say report not possible, or date range invalid?
