show wms ap {<bssid>|list|stats [mon-mac <mon-mac> bssid <bssid>]|tree}

Description

This command displays information for APs currently monitored by the Wireless Management System (WMS).

Syntax

Parameter

Description

<bssid>

Enter the AP’s 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. number in hexadecimal format (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX).

list

Shows the list of all APs monitored by WMS.

stats

Shows the AP Statistics table for all APs.

mon-mac <mon-mac>

Shows the AP Tree table for an AP with the specified MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address.

bssid <bssid>

Shows the AP Tree table for an AP with the specified 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..

tree

Show the APs seen by each monitoring probe in the WMS.

Usage Guidelines

The WMS feature periodically sends statistics that it has collected for APs and Probes to the WMS process. When WMS receives an event message from an AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode., it will save the event information along with the 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. of the AP that generated the event in the WMS database. When WMS receives statistics from the AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode., it updates its state, and the database.

Examples

The show wms ap <bssid> command displays a list of AP MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. addresses and the BSSIDsBasic 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. seen by each AP.

The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

BSSID

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.) for the AP. This 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.

SSID

The Service Set Identifier (SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network.) that identifies a wireless network.

Channel

Channel used by the AP radio.

Type

A WMS AP type can be one of the following:

soft-ap: An Aruba Access Point (AP).

air-monitor: An Aruba Air Monitor (AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode.).

RAP_Type

Indicates one of the following Rogue AP types:

Valid (not a rogue AP)

Interfering

Rogue

Suspected Rogue

Disabled Rogue

Unclassified

Known Interfering

Status

If up, the AP is active. If down (or no information is shown) the AP is inactive.

Ageout

An ageout time is the time, in minutes, that the client must remain unseen by any probes before it is eliminated from the database. If this column displays a -1, the client has not yet aged out. Any other number indicates the number of minutes since the client has passed its ageout interval.

HT-type

The type of high-throughput traffic sent by the AP:

HT-20mhz: The AP radio uses a single 20 MHzMegahertz channel

HT-40mhz: The AP radio uses a 40 MHzMegahertz channel pair comprised of two adjacent 20 MHzMegahertz channels.

HT-Sec-Chan

Secondary channel used for 40 MHzMegahertz high-throughput transmissions.

MAC

MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address of a probe that can see the specified AP.

IP

IP address of a probe that can see the specified AP.

Name

Name of the probe.

Type

Displays the probe type: A WMS probe can be one of the following:

soft-ap: An Aruba Access Point (AP).

air-monitor: An Aruba Air Monitor (AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode.).

Status

If up, the AP is active. If down (or no information is shown) the AP is inactive.

AP Type

AP model type.

The example below shows received and transmitted data statistics for each 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. seen by a monitoring AP.
