Event Analyzer


The Event Analyzer tab provides information about events caused by wireless end-points connecting to your network.

You can access the tab in a number of ways and the information presented changes depending on the method you use:

  • Navigating via Wireless > Clients > Event Analyzer shows all end-points.
  • Selecting a Location on the Wireless > Clients tab opens the Event Analyzer for the end-points that occurred for all APs in that Location.
  • Selecting a MAC address on the Wireless > Clients tab opens the Event Analyzer for only that end-point.

When accessing the tab using the top two methods, a Clients section is available in the left-panel. This section provides you with the ability to display end-point events for specific AP locations.

Once you select the appropriate end-points or areas, this section can be collapsed by selecting the left arrow.

The top of the tab contains a graph displaying the RSS (Received Signal Strength) for the end-point events.

The bottom contains a table showing information about each event.

RSS Graph

The RSS graph at the top of the tab shows the signal strength (in dBm) between the end-point and each of the APs to which it connected. The shape of the end-point event indicators in the graph indicate the type of event.
