  1. latency

    Can you create a report that shows the latency from the controllers to the Remote AP's (RAP's)? This would be useful in troubleshooting performance issues. Thanks, Walter

    • Time periods for triggers

      Add the ability to set alerting time periods for emailing triggers. Examples would be "Business Hours" so that admins are only notified between 8-5 M-F.

      • Bring back the channel overlay in VisualRF

        The VisualRF channel overlay was deprecated in AirWave. Please vote here if you'd like to see it come back, and let us know how you use use.

          Add the ability to add a description to the trigger, e.g., "stolen laptop, incident #001236, username = <name>".

          • Automatically check for device name changes and update Airwave automatically

            It would be great if Airwave would automatically go out and check to see if names have changed on a device or AP. I know we can manually import the device settings, but it would be great if it was an automated feature.

            • Display Active Web Console Users

              As far as I know, there is no way to see all users who are currently logged into and using the AirWave web console. Is it feasible to add a page that would display this information?

                • 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.

                      • Include VisualRF plans with APs in reports

                        When running a report such as top utilised APs or RF Health with top Chanel changes etc, include the floor plan(s) from VisualRF and only show the APs contained in the report.
                        Perhaps this could be done with a simple tick box for 'Include Visual RF' in the report definations.

                        • 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…

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Provide a way to filter out unauthenticated users from reports

                                Please add support for ProCurve MSM controllers to allow reporting on authenticated users and not just associated users. The authenticated users information resides under the VSC tab on the controllers. We need to have accurate reporting on authenticated users, associated users just shows us how many people obtained an IP Address from our web-auth network which is not accurate enough to provide usage stats on

                                      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.

                                    • Trigger for user count per radio and/or BSSID, not AP

                                      Currently, we can trigger on number of users per radio. However, from a monitoring standpoint, this isn't as useful. It is more helpful to ensure you are not about to reach your configured association limit BSSID. Additionally, it would be useful to also trigger on the total concurrent devices on a radio.

                                      • Create my own widgets for the AWMS screens

                                        Is there an API or some other document that makes it possible for me to write my own widgets to customize the user screens in AWMS?
