Aruba Controller Physical Connection and Network Latency/ Saturation

Hi,

 

We have a 6000 controller with an M3 card. As of now, 1 gigabit port is connected to our wired network through a trunk port. The controller is a master and there are about 30 APs currently terminated to it. We are planning to place 100+ more APs. We are planning to use the 10Gb port in the future but I am wondering what commands or paramters should we be looking at to see if the 1 Gb port we have is currently functioning properly without saturation or dropping packets? Thanks.

Re: Aruba Controller Physical Connection and Network Latency/ Saturation

We will have about 150 APs in a campus deployment with a master controller. We are wondering how many 10GB or 1GB ports should be use as members of a port channel to trunk to our switch to avoid any congestion. How do you guys usually connect the controller to your switch/ router. Do you usually use a port channel and add all ports to this port channel? Or do you only use a few ports added to the port channel?

I typically (as in 95% of the time)  run with two 1Gbps interfaces in aggregation mode.

 

That provides, under normal conditions, up to 2 Gbps of throughput... and also resiliancy against any one port/SFP/Cable issue.

 

Haven't seen this 'bottle neck' a deployment yet... e.g. haven't found the need to light up other ports in aggregation mode in the vast majority of deployments.
