Why does an AP or AM report that the same device as interfering every 15 seconds or so?

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS versions.

When an Aruba AP detects an interfering AP in the RF neighborhood, it sends a syslog message.

The two possible reasons for frequent and multiple "Interfering AP detected" log messages are:

  • The Aruba AP no longer heard the interfering AP on its channel and removed it from its monitored AP list after the AP inactivity period. When it hears from the interfering AP again, it sends out a new syslog message.
  • The interfering AP has changed channel. When the Aruba AP detected it on a different channel, the Aruba AP sent a syslog message.
