How to terminate WMS services at BOC (Branch office controller)?
- When WMS is terminated on the Master all the APs across the network communicates with WMS on the Master.
- Bandwidth is limited on WAN link between the BOC and Master controller.
- If WMS is on the Master, the WMS updates from Branch to Master controller utilizes more bandwidth.
- To optimize WAN link bandwidth utilization, WMS service can be terminated at BOC
•In 6.x, WMS service is terminated at Master only and every AP across the network communicates with WMS on the master.
•In 22.214.171.124, WMS service can be terminated at BOC instead of MM.
•This feature is designed mainly to optimize bandwidth usage between BOC and WMS, while still providing the WMS functionality that is needed.
•When wms is terminated at BOC, Security page can be viewed in BOC Dashboard. All other wms operations like export, import, etc are also available at BOC.

Parameter ‘override-service-termination’ has to be enabled in ids wms-local-system-profile on device node:

By default, ‘override-service-termination’ parameter is disabled and WMS will be terminated on MM.
To check whether WMS is terminated at BOC, login to BOC CLI (not the MM CLI) and issue the below show command.
(BOC-MD) #show ids wms-local-system-profile IDS WMS Local System Profile ---------------------------- Parameter Value Set --------- ----- --- Max AP Threshold 0 Max STA Threshold 0 Max RBTree Entries 0 Max System Wired MACs 1000 Override Service Termination true Periodic AP Snapshot Interval 180 minutes Periodic Rogue AP Snapshot Interval 30 minutes Periodic STA Snapshot Interval 180 minutes System Wired MAC Update Interval 8
Security dashboard will appear on the BOC WebUI after enable WMS service termination.
