Ideal and Acceptable Coverage Index

I am quite confuse with the Ideal and Acceptable Coverage field.

 

What exactly is the function of each of them and when do I tweak the Ideal and Acceptable coverage index?

95% of the time you do not have to change those parameters.  An explanation of ARM parameters is here:  http://support.arubanetworks.com/DOCUMENTATION/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=2569

Re: Ideal and Acceptable Coverage Index

I just read the description of the Coverage Index calculation.  It includes, "The coverage index iscalculated as x/y, where “x” is the AP’s weighted calculation of the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) on all valid APs on a specified 802.11 channel..."

 

Is the weighting described anywhere?  Without that the number value is still meaningless for all but releative comparisons.

Please try the document here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/70/1204/1/ARM+Doc+Supplement.pdf

 

The number is meaningless, because it is a factor that is created by Aruba and not anything that is a standard.
