What kind of reporting features does the Aruba Controller has? Some of the things that I am looking for is whether the Controller is able to perform any one of the below:
- Utilization based on a per SSID. Things which are ideal is to have bandwidth utilization, per user bandwidth utilization or user (either MAC address, OS type, or hostname) session duration.
- Alerting when an access point is down.
For item 1, I understand that most of this will be real-time information (if I understand this correctly). I have found that 'show ap bw-report' is possible by displaying bandwidth usage. Will this be possible?
For item 2, I can do a 'show ap active' to display active access points. If I want to show access points which have lost connectivity to the controller, is this possible?

Yes, I understand that Airwave can only do historical reporting. I was planning to do a little scripting to pull statistics out from the controller and send via email on a daily basis. The statistic, if needed, can be resetted to 0, for example before it gets filled up again.
The same goes for the access points. That means on a daily basis, if there are 15 access points and if one goes down, I should see 14 access points which means one is down. I believe the 'show ap active' should be able to do this but I would like to confirm. Also, if I am able to see what the AP name of the inactive access point.

For item 2, the 'show ap database' should be good. I will use this.
For item 1, I saw that 'show user_session_count' is deprecated but it looks that it could help. Anything equivalent to the command? Is 'show user-table' the one?

Anything actually. Because the controller doesn't have reporting features, I am looking to see what it can do. I'll just create a script that will log into the controller to pull those data out and email out. It's very crude unfortunately.
