How to check if an AP is running out of TX buffers which leads to dropped packets?

Aruba Employee

Run the following command per AP and radio band to check for available TX buffers: 

#show ap debug radio-stats ap-name <ap_name> radio 0 advanced | inc Buffer 
# show ap debug radio-stats ap-name <ap_name> radio 1 advanced | inc Buffer 

Examples: 

* Normal AP125 operation: 
(mm6000-M3) #show ap debug radio-stats ap-name M3-ap125-1 radio 0 advanced | include Buffer 
Avail TX Buffers          512 
Dropped No Buffer         0 

* AP running out of buffers: 
(mm6000-M3) # show ap debug radio-stats ap-name M3-ap125-2 radio 0 advanced | include Buffer 
Avail TX Buffers          14 
Dropped No Buffer         1007
