show ap debug counters {ap-name <ap-name>|bssid <bssid>|group <group>|ip-addr <ip-addr>|ip6-addr <ip6-addr>}

Description

Syntax

Parameter

Description

ap-name <ap-name>

Show debug counters for an AP with a specified name.

bssid <bssid>

Show debug counters for a specific Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.). The Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.) is usually the AP’s MACMedia Access Control.

group <group>

Show debug counters for an AP group.

ip-addr <ip-addr>

ip6-addr <ip6-addr>

Show debug counters for an AP with a specified IPv6 address by entering an IP address in dotted-decimal format.

Example

The output of this command shows how many times each AP has rebooted (a hard boot) or bootstrapped (a soft boot), the number of configuration changes sent and acknowledged by that AP, and whether or not the AP rebooted due to a kernel crash.

In this example, the output has been divided into multiple sections to better fit on the pages of this document. In the actual CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions., it will appear in a single, long table.
