How do I check the transmit and receive data rate on a mesh network?

Question:  How do I check the transmit and receive data rate on a mesh network?

 

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and Aruba OS 3.3.1.

The mesh point will associate to the parent mesh node using either the radio a or b/g to establish the wireless backhaul connection to the wired networks.

To check the transmit rate, receive rate, last received Signal to Noice Ratio (SNR), and last ACK SNR, follow these steps:

Step 1:

Identify the name of the parent node for the mesh point using the following command:

(STU2) #show ap mesh topology 

Example:

The parent AP name for point:9c is portal:be

 

(STU2) #show ap mesh topo Mesh Cluster Name: stu2-mesh
----------------------------
Name Mesh Role Parent Path Cost Node Cost Link Cost Hop Count RSSI Last Update Uplink Age #Children
---- --------- ------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---- ----------- ---------- ---------
point:9c Point portal:be 1 0 0 1 32 4m:29s 26m:26s 0
portal:36 Portal - 0 0 0 0 0 3m:34s 3h:26m:34s 0
portal:be Portal - 0 1 0 0 0 27s 3h:26m:25s 1 Total APs :3
(R): Recovery AP. For Portals 'Uplink Age' equals uptime.  

Step 2:

Get the client data using the following command:

 

show ap debug client-table ap-name <name>

 

Example:

Tx rate : 36 Mbps

Rx rate : 48 Mbps

Last ACK SNR : 32

Last RX SNR: 26

(STU2) #show ap debug client-table ap-name portal:be
