Debugging ARM error thresholds?

We had reports customer reports this morning complaining about general connectivity. Running some basic commands, I couldn't see anything for today, but could see that there were definate issues yesterday with error thresholds exceeded on 1 AP

 

) #show ap arm history ap-name ap105-xxxxxx

I: Interference, R: Radar detection, N: Noise exceeded, E: Error threshold exceeded, INV: Invalid Channel, G: Rogue AP Containment, M: Empty Channel, P+: Increase Power, P-: Decrease Power, 40INT: 40MHZ intol detected on 2.4G, NO40INT: 40MHz intol cleared on 2.4G, OFF: Turn off Radio, ON: Turn on Radio

 

Are there any additional commnads that I can run to find which error threshold has been exceeded?

Re: Debugging ARM error thresholds?

 

When the Error threshold has been execced it usually means that you have a lot PHY/MAC errors which could be cause by Layer 2 retransmissions , Interference , Low SNR , etc..

 

You could run the following show ap arm rf summary <ap-name> , this command will tell you know whether there's a lot PHY/MAC errors , noice and retries on a particular channel

 

 

Thank you

Re: Debugging ARM error thresholds?

Im not seeing much in the way of errors but the area is quiet at the moment - I will retrt later when it is busier - Thx for the command syntax
