Increase number of wireless client events shown in OneView


How can I increase the number of wireless client events shown in OneView? I found in Administration/Wireless/Wireless Event Summary that Client event history size is set to 5000, which only gives me an hour or two of events. I couldn't work out where to change it.

Also, is it possible to view the wireless client events from the client view itself? Currently client history is just some graphs, and the portview wireless details only has current information.

James,

I think you'd change the event history in the Netsight Console -> options -> Console -> OneView Collector -> Edit Client History and Threat options (screenshot attached).

I don't understand the second part of the question - could you tell me the exact path in OneView that you are talking about.

Greetings,
Ron

Yep, that's exactly the option I needed to change, thanks. See my other comment for the path.

Thanks for such a great answer Ronald!
In Wireless/Clients/Client Events I get a list of events, including type (auth, roam, registration, de-registration, state change, active) MAC/IP/username, AP name, BSSID/SSID, location (!), RSS, auth state. I can't work out how to view much of this data for a particular client except by searching for them in this view - I'd expect it to be in the Client PortView. Ahh, I just found it - you have to right click on the client in the PortView and there's a Client Event History option.

Thanks, I need to keep that in mind for the future, too many views if you are new to the tool 🙂
