Does anyone know if there is a command line to monitor and/or see which clients are connected to a particular WLAN?

This is for Wing v8.5 on a VX9000 controller.

Thanks!

Hi Jacob,

Can you try "show  wireless client filter wlan <wlan name>

Hello Jacob,

You have the following one:

show wireless client filter wlan yourWLANname

I think this is what you are looking for, if not, let us know. Have a nice day!

Kind regards,

Daniel.

You can also use...
show wireless client on <rf-domain>|include <wlan-name>

if single domain on controller...
show wireless client |include <wlan-name>

Hey Jacob,

apart of above mentioned, please bear in mind that what these commands show is aggregated statistic for particular RF-Domain.
When you trigger the command it does show current status - as seen from controller side. 

In complex, structured network it might take a certain period of time until you see the wireless client connected / disconnected, because of time needed by local manager to share report with remote adopter. 

Regards,
Ondrej

Would it be more helpful to log into a specific AP to run this command?

Hello Jacob,

You can see the clients connected to an specific adopted AP with the following command:

show wireless client on apNAME | include wlanName

By grepping the result as on other recommended comment you will filter for a specific WLAN. So it is not necessary to log directly on the AP you want to see the clients connected.

Kind regards,

Daniel

Yes.  You can also run these commands on the AP.  IT will show just those clients on that particular AP.  Same filters apply.  Good filter(s) to use are 

show wireless client |include <wildcard>
show wireless client |exclude <wildcard>

the |include or |exclude work for most show command to help reduce what you list out or need to see when you have many clients, AP.....
