Bandwidth consumption for communication between AP and Central

Helllo,

 

Can anyone tell me how much bandwidth (MB) is consumed through the connection between the AP and the Central. I understand should be very little since the communication is for report or occasionally provisioning. 

 

Also, the communication occurs between each AP in a cluster with the Aruba Central? Or only the Master AP in an instant cluster communicates with Central ?

Hi,

 

It is the master IAP in the cluster which communicates with Central.

 

However, in some cases eg apprf data, the communication can take place between slave & Central as well.

Hi, 

 

Thanks for the info. Do you know what is the average bandwidth for reporting between the Master IAP to Aruba Central?

We tested it with a cluster of 12IAPs running in the lab and saw less than 1kbps in average.
