Health Check Status
Admins can quickly scan health check performance against the baseline results. When setting up the health check, admins designate the bad and fair thresholds as a percentage of baseline performance.
Tale of Two Sweeps
Two sweeps with dramatically different results, showing the detailed report of the imapct a single in-use microwave oven can have on network performance.
Detail logs can help troubleshoot problems around the network. Here we see the results of antenna problems on one AP.
Although other tools in the network management arsenal likely do this already, the Software Assurance module can also diagnose network DHCP issues.
Adminstrators can sift through log reports to isolate the client AP and servicing AP in a faltering connection.
Administrators can attach a floormap to the Network Manager module enable the visualization tools within the Service Assurance Module.
Health checks will run the same checks as done in the baseline. To limit what networks are tested in a sweep, I needed to clone a baseline to be able to de-select APs or ESSIDs.
