Average Daily Sessions broken down by building or floor

I am wondering wether Airwave can output the following report

 

July 2013

# of APs

Average Daily Sessions

Building A

  

Building B

  

Building C

  

Building D

  

Building E

  

Building F

  

Building G

  

Building H

  

 

The 'Client Session: Summary' gives me what I need but that is for all the buildings and groups and folders.

 

Is there no way (without having to do separate reports), to have this summary broken down by Folder?

Try using the "Device Summary" report vs the client session.  When you run that report, you will get a breakdown of usage and clients per folder.

Also, in the client session, there is a checkbox in the report definition settings for Top clients by folder

Thanks Seth for the info. The Device Summary report is more what I am looking for but does not summarize for average sessions but more MAX concurrent clients connected per device.
I am looking for a breakdown by building folder and an average of client sessions.

The top clients is great but is not an average...

I vote that it's a feature request.

 

Aaron (also in QA) suggests trying the Network Usage report (it's got an option to display usage and client count on a per folder basis).  It will have additional displayed aggregates depending on the layers of folders you have since it starts at Top and works it's way down the folder list.

I think this looks fantastic. I will confirm on Monday when I present my data to my supervisor.

 

I am hoping this covers it

Not exactly what were looking for as the data is not presented in tabular format.

We get pretty graphs but not direct numbers.

[ Edited ]

This is doable if Airwave provides a raw data session report summary which reports on every sessions summary detail as one line item with other good relevant information such as connected AP, controller, signal strength (RSSI), Signal Quality (SNR), Client username, association time, connection duration, map location, SSID & Radio Type and you can generate a report on daily basis to collect the raw data required on daily basis. With the daily raw data report, one can then use the XML query to get the data out and you can easily massage the data according to your needs. 

 

Regarding the sessions information, it would be more useful to use a rolling past 7days data rather than a daily summary because, it will span through the two non-working days and number should be more consistent assuming there is no big change in the way the wireless is being used. With the daily raw data, one can easily do the past 7days numbers if you want. Once you have the raw data, it's all upto you how you look at the data. 

 

Just my 2 cents.

Love your $0.02

Being able to differentiate weekdays from weekends is key as well.
