I work in an environment that has a few hundred ap-105's. My main focus right now is to determine the historical user and data usage on each ap. We want to figure out if coverage is where it needs to be as well what ap's are being utilized or not. What would be the best course of action to get these results? Any help would be appreciated.

I would suggest using the Daily AP Client Count report as a baseline and changing the following:
- If you have your AP's in a group, restrict the report to that group.
- Change the number of items in the report to a number higher than your total AP count
- Change the report start and end date

You can build and generate AirWave reports to give you some of this analysis. Create a new report with Device Summary (RF Health will also give you some of this) as the report type. Select your criteria as necessary; and change the number of items to include to your preference. The resulting report will show a variety of things, but to satisfy your requirements, you can sort the columns for Clients, Max Clients, Total Data, or Avg Usage. This coupled with any report filters you set in the definition can help you find over and underutilized APs over time.
