After upgrading V2110 with firmware 10.21.01.0065 I noticed its was not possible to see the  clients per VNS or AP.  It too bad because I used that report a lot.


There is also a new one: 'Channell Inspector'. Verry userfull, But isn't Overlap/Interfering the same as Adjacent ?

Hi Johan,

thx for bringing that up, I wasn't aware of the new channel inspector report.

In my example you'd see that adjacent is the +/- 1 channel of the currently used channel, might be that the reason for this seperate category it is to show you that you've a really bad channel plan.

Hi Johan
I wanted to post the same question, the clients per AP/VNS was very useful.
I have the solution deployed across a metro with various ISP's and each ISP want to know how many clients is connected to their specific SSID....

Please bring back

Regarding the new client report - I think you need to blame that on me and my CR....
https://community.extremenetworks.com/extreme/topics/report-clients-by-role

Instead of adding another report to the "client by X" section it looks like the format was changed to the all-clients report with a filter/search function in the upper left corner.

In case you'd like to see clients on a certain VNS you'd put the WLAN/SSID in the filter/search field.
So you'd filter on everything in the report.

But you are right I'm also not 100% happy with the new system as I miss the auto-refresh and the last column with the total value.

On the positiv site ... I really like the new AP dashboard.

It already helped me to solve a problem with bad thruput with a Kindle Fire TV stick = choppy video, low quality, buffering.

The dashboard indicated a channel util of about 45% - after I've changed the channel it went down to 5-10% (screenshot below) and everything was working again.

Hello Ronald,

do you know if it know possible that Extreme Control Center collect historical statistics about noise and channel utilization? 

I still have no new reply from Extreme to my other post related to this topic:

Here is a Me-Too in your direction.

I created a ticket earlier this week with product enhancement requests. This was request #1 on my list (please give the the old Client reports back). I too had grown pretty accustomed to using it.

For me - it was a quick way to check and see if any one particular access point was handling too much of the load.

I just had an idea and gave it a try.... go to the controller dashboard and click on the "station by AP" section and you get the "old" clients by AP report - CR solved :-)

Another me too for the bucket.

I use "by AP" and "by VNS" reports quite a bit, please bring them back to client reports.

That said, I like the new search bar and it's a good addition to "All active clients" report.

We also use both the Client by AP and Client by VNS report. The above fix solves the Client by AP problem. Is it possible to reinstate the Clients by VNS report. We are a convention centre and that report is a good break down of how many clients are using the networks created for individual events.

My customer pointed me to another thing that has changed.
Because of the new feature application visibility the OUI resolution (ID the vendor of the WLAN adapter) was replaced with the more accurate information that was collected via packet inspection.

The thing is that AP37xx doesn't support application visibility so the field is "unknown" - could we get back the OUI ID for the "old" APs to get at least a idea what device vendor is connected to the AP.


Example:
MU1&4 are connected to a AP38xx and show the device type information
MU2&3 are connected to a AP37xx and show unknown
