How do I check the actual transmit power of an AP

I have Aruba 225 and Aruba 205. To validate some issues about TX power, I'd like to use CLI check the real TX power of the radio. 

 

Here is a link for Aruba 3.x (http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/How-do-I-check-the-actual-transmit-power-of-an-AP/ta-p/181614) 

 

It mentions a command as below:

#show ap debug driver-log ap-name ap-test | include Tx

 

Does anyone know what the equivalence is in Aruba OS 6.x? Aruba 225 and 205 are all Instant AP. They have no controller. 

 

Thank you.

Re: How do I check the actual transmit power of an AP

Same command, but can change to 'EIRP' or 'Radio0/Radio1'. Sample output from an AP-325 is below. You can see what the config is set to (either static or by ARM, it won't say), what the allowed max is, what the Regulatory Max is, as well as the conducted power and antenna gain. So in the below case, Radio0 (5Ghz) is set to 23dBm, where the conducted (radio) power is 18 and the 5dBi antenna gain equals 23dB. On Radio1 (2.4Ghz), the config is set to 9dB, so the radio is set to conduct at 5.5dBm and the 3.5dBi antenna equals the 9dB EIRP. 

 

721    1824863.506438 Radio0: EIRP (Config: 24.0dBm, Set: 23.0dBm, AP Max: 23.0dBm, Reg Max: 29dBm, Override AP Max: 132.5dBm), Conducted Power Set: 18.0dBm, Gain: 5.0dBm

722    1825223.433169 Radio0: EIRP (Config: 24.0dBm, Set: 23.0dBm, AP Max: 23.0dBm, Reg Max: 29dBm, Override AP Max: 132.5dBm), Conducted Power Set: 18.0dBm, Gain: 5.0dBm

723    2155354.503881 Radio1: EIRP (Config: 12.0dBm, Set: 12.0dBm, AP Max: 21.5dBm, Reg Max: 30dBm, Override AP Max: 131.0dBm), Conducted Power Set: 8.5dBm, Gain: 3.5dBm

724    2159066.516482 Radio1: EIRP (Config: 9.0dBm, Set: 9.0dBm, AP Max: 21.5dBm, Reg Max: 30dBm, Override AP Max: 131.0dBm), Conducted Power Set: 5.5dBm, Gain: 3.5dBm
