Configuration of maximum clients per radio on IAP 4.2.3
Q:

Configuration of maximum clients per radio on IAP 4.2.3



A:

​This feature is support from IAP 4.2.3

  • New action command on a AP which allows setting of maximum clients per radio. This is going to be a in-memory dynamic state which will be enforced during client association.
  • With this feature we can develop more deterministic approach of client load balancing, when client match is disabled. Also we will have less regression impact.

From CLI 

9c:1c:12:c7:ea:d6#a-max-clients 10

9c:1c:12:c7:ea:d6#g-max-clients 20

No configuration option avail from WEBUI.

No show command support is available for now. Hence configured value’s can be verified using get-sysctl command.

Client association is dropped when max client count is reached

 

 

Debug log output

Allowed limit is from 1 to 255

Implementation on ATH based platform is not done yet

Note: Max client limit will be flushed out  when IAP reload
