I'm looking for a logfile of some type in VisualRF that lists client history. Essentially it's what is used to plot client history in VRF, but I'd like to analyze it with a 3rd party tool. Something with mac address, event times, and coordinates (x.y) of client locations would be ideal. Is this available? How often is it modified, refreshed, recycled?

I found in the API where I can call client_search.xml to get the complete list of clients, and then I can loop through each mac with the location.xml. This is doable, but not preferred. Is anyone aware of a single API call to get locations of all active clients?

Of the customers who leverage the VisualRF APIs for client location, they typically match against the site.xml file. This is gotten typically by viewing a floor plan, and then clicking ctrl+x+m+l (it will open XML file in a new window, make sure the floor plan frame is the active portion by left clicking on the floor plan before trying to launch the XML). This site.xml file is tied to a specific site_id which represents each floor. If this doesn't get you what you're looking for, then a feature request should be made via the ideas portal.
