What is the benefit to my network if I enabled deauth inactive users?  We use Aruba IAPs.

It would age out clients that are not active sooner.  Otherwise a client that has gone away and is not sending traffic will stay even longer in the user table.

Colin:

I understand that but is it any benefit to age them out.  Does it cut down on traffic? I guess I am asking why I would do this?

Re: Inactive users

If they are inactive there is no traffic, but they show up in the user table.  It removes them from the user table.  That means you would only see clients in the user table that have been sending traffic, as opposed to users who have stopped sending traffic, but we never removed them.
