Airwave Traffic Graphs
11-19-2014 06:13 PM
I have Airwave with multiple controllers and few traffic graphs.
One pair is a 7200 series controller. When I look at the traffic graphs for the controllers on Airwave versus the network ports that they're attaching to, they're not even close to lining up. On my MRTG I am seeing upwards of 150 Mbps to 210 Mbps, however the controller in Airwave is showing around 20 Mbps of usage with some spikes. I am running 126.96.36.199 code.
I also have a number of M3 controllers, where the network port traffic isn't lining up. It seems to be that Airwave is showing about 70% of the MRTG network traffic. Code here is 188.8.131.52
I have reimported all the configs and done audits. I usually run Airwave in monitor only mode.
Does anyone have any resources or experience around this? I am using AMON (as best I can tell, as the traffic is getting to the server), however the prefer AMON option is not enabled.

It's been our general experience that without prefer-amon the traffic is 1/2 to 2/3rds reality. With prefer-AMON the client count is way too high, and I forget what happens with the traffic. Also AppRF traffic is way too high in either case, last time I looked. We haven't had time to debug it by setting up a clean demo-mode server.
Right now we only use it as a relative measure and when we need an absolute measure we go to other equipment.
