I have three access points in our library. I am starting to have major latency issues with them. I believe that I am overloading these three and will possibly need a few more.
What I would like to do is monitor the usage of the access points individually (cacti, Mrtg, zenoss) so that I can justify the purchase of additional units.
try an make the clients spread out evenly among the three ap's.
Any and all help is appreciated.

Second, you should enable band steering (again assuming your version of code has it). Band steering will attempt to steer clients toward the 5GHz radio that should be less congested due to less interference and more channels. Band steering requires dual radio APs to be effective.
If you enable those two features, it should help you if you have an issue with load and the clients are not spread out effectively.
