Upgrade from to - AMON question

Hello all,


I need to upgrade an ARUBA 7210 controller from to I see in the release notes this note :

When upgrading from an existing ArubaOS 6.4.x release, it is required to set AMON packet size manually to a desired value. However, the packet size is increased to 32K by default for fresh installations of ArubaOS


So I've make research and I find this :



So I've got two questions :

  • I understand I need to size manually the packet size for AMON, I need to do this before or after the upgrade ?
  • The note explain the packet size is 32k. The new size (in bytes) is 32768 ? Or 32000 ?

Thanks for your help !

Most people have to do nothing. That parameter is there for people who had fire walls between the controller and airwave that could not pass packets that size. If you don't have a firewall between your controller & Airwaves you most likely have nothing to do.
