Aggregate Statistics

I know this is a newbie question but can someone tell me what Aggregate Statistics are?  I have one AP that user's are saying is very slow and bandwith is higher on this one under this category..

 

Thanks

Re: Aggregate Statistics

Your multicast/broadcast could be the issue.  Go to the VLAN that your users are on, and Enable BCMC Optimization to suppress multicasts and broadcasts:  Go to configuration> Network> IP.  Edit the VLAN number that your users are on and Enable the checkbox next to Enable BCMC Optimization, and click on apply in the lower right hand corner.  Remember, if you have any applications that depend on broadcasts or multicasts, they will not work when you do this.
