What does Q: Bad Channel Quality Mean

I've a couple IAPs at my house that use for "testing". The connectivity last night was terrible. I thought something might be interfering, so I pulled out a spectrum analyzer. Although I don't know a lot about what I'm looking at, I didn't see anything that stood out. What I did see was traffic moving between channels 6 and 11.

The GUI showed devices moving between the two channels. Running show ap arm history shows. in part, the following:

Thanks. So ARM monitors the quality settings from the spectrum monitor and changes when it reaches a certain threshold? If so, where do you find that setting?

That is not configurable on instant.
