it auto backs up your controllers to which you can restore directly from within Airwave which is a nice feature.

ability to receive syslog and traps from your controllers so you can be triggered in an any type of event for example if a process dies. http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Unified-Wired-Wireless-Access/Tutorial-Using-Airwave-and-SNMP-traps-to-trigger-alarms-based/td-p/140929

Hi, 

I presume that the most imortant are long term trend analysys and extensible troubleshooting. Personally I do not prefer to manage controller-based deployments via AirWave. 

HTH,

Re: Airwave vs no Airwave in controller based deployment

I like the ability to use one configuration in Airwave to keep 7 master controllers neatly in line, rather than having to make the same changes in each controller and try to keep them in sync.
