Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba platforms and ArubaOS and later.


In ArubaOS, an option was added to WMS GENERAL called "collect-stats" that could be enabled or disabled:


(MM6000) #show wms general


General Attributes 
Key Value 
--- ----- 
poll-interval 60000 
poll-retries 2 
ap-ageout-interval 30 
sta-ageout-interval 30 
learn-ap disable 
persistent-known-interfering enable 
propagate-wired-macs enable 
stat-update enable 
collect-stats disable 
wms-on-master enable

Is Master enable



One way to check if the stats are being collected or not is to run the 'show wms counters' command and look for the counters with "stats RB-tree". They should be null if no stats are being collected.



(MM6000) #show wms counters
