show ap mesh debug counters

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

Description

Show counters statistics for a mesh node.

Syntax

Parameter

Description

ap-name <ap-name>

Show counter statistics for an AP with a specific name.

bssid <bssid>

Show counter statistics 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.) on an AP. An AP’s BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier.

In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly. is usually the AP’s MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address.

ip-addr <ip-addr>

View counter statistics for an AP with a specific IP address. Enter the IP address of the AP in dotted-decimal format.

Example

The example below shows the Mesh Packet Counters table for an AP named meshpoint1. The Probe Resp, Assoc Req, and Assoc Resp data columns show both the total number of counters and, in parenthesis, the number of requests or responses with high-throughput information elements (HE IEs).

The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

Interface

Indicates whether the mesh interface connects to a Parent AP or a Child AP. Each row of data in the Mesh Packet Counters table shows counter values for an individual interface.

Echo Sent

Number of echo packets sent.

Echo Recv

Number of echo packets received.

Probe Req

Number of probe request packets sent from the interface specified in the Mesh-IF parameter.

Probe Resp

Number of probe response packets sent to the interface specified in the Interface parameter.

 

Assoc Req

Number of association request packets from the interface specified in the Interface parameter.

Assoc Resp

Number of association response packets from the interface specified in the Interface parameter. This number includes valid responses and fail responses.

Assoc Fail

Number of fail responses received from the interface specified in the Interface parameter.

Link up/down

Number of times the link up or link down state has changed.

Resel.

Number of times a mesh point attempted to reselect a different mesh portal.

Switch

Number of times a mesh point successfully switched to a different mesh portal.

Other Mgmt

Management frames of any type other than association and probe frames, either received on child interface, or sent on parent interface.
