Data Pane Item

Description

Usage

Displays the incoming and outgoing data traffic detected on the APs.

Clients

Displays the Total Clients connected to an AP and Remote Clients connected to VPN Virtual Private Network. VPN enables secure access to a corporate network when located remotely. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security, and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two. over a specific period.

Bandwidth Usage Per Network

Displays the incoming and outgoing traffic for all APs per SSID Service Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. over a specific duration.

Client Count Per Network

Displays the number of clients connected to an AP per SSID over a specific time period.

Top APs By Usage

Displays the list of top APs that utilize the maximum bandwidth in the network. Bandwidth usage includes the total data transmitted and received on the radio interfaces and wired clients connected to the AP.

Top Clients  By Usage

Displays the list of top clients connected to the currently available SSIDs that utilize the maximum bandwidth in the network.

Top IAP Clusters By Usage

Displays the list of top AP clusters that utilize the maximum bandwidth in the network. This information is displayed for devices that operate in a cluster deployment mode and not for devices that operate in standalone mode. The section does not display data for APs in ArubaOS 10.

Top IAP Clusters By Clients

Displays the list of top AP clusters, connected to the client, that utilize the maximum bandwidth in the network. This information is displayed for devices that operate in a cluster deployment mode and not for devices that operate in standalone mode. The section does not display data for APs in ArubaOS 10.

WLAN
