Answer- The ability to scan all channels of the RF spectrum, including 2.4- and 5-GHz bands as well as the 4.9-GHz public safety band. TotalWatch also provides 5-MHz granular channel scanning of bands for rogue devices, and dynamic scanning dwell times to focus on those channels with traffic. TotalWatch provides an advanced set of features to detect unauthorized wireless devices and a set of customizable rules are utilized to highlight devices that truly pose a threat to the network.

The origin of totalwatch concept is a scanning method that came with the Network Chemistry purchase. The idea is that the system will spend some amount of time scanning rare channels. To enable total watch you must modify the RF AM scanning profile:

rf am-scan-profile "am-scan"

   scan-mode rare

   TotalWatch is supported on APs deployed in the AM-mode only.
