Endpoint Agent Views - Wireless

This article describes the Wireless view under Local Networks in Endpoint Agents > Views.

  1. Metric Dropdown Menu: Measurements for the following metric categories are available:

    Note: Metrics are averaged across all agents by default.

    Metric Category

    Description

    Signal Quality

    The signal quality of the wireless connection, displayed as a percentage. A value of 0% implies an actual received signal strength indicator (RSSI) signal strength of -100 dBm. A value of 100% implies an actual RSSI signal strength of -50 dBm.

    Throughput

    The throughput observed by the Endpoint Agent.

    Retransmission Rate

    The wireless retransmission rate experienced by the Endpoint Agent.

    Roaming Events

    The number of times the wireless access point changes, measured by the number of times the BSSID of the connected network changes.

    Channel Swap Events

    The number of times the wireless channel changes for the connected access point.

  2. Timeline: The Timeline view plots a line graph of the selected metric over time, as well as a bar chart of the number of Endpoint Agents across all user sessions. Includes 24h, 7d, and 14d links, as well as the capacity to move date tabs to show data over a custom range.

  3. Endpoint Table: The Endpoint Table contains the following metrics:

    Metric

    Description

    Agent

    Endpoint Agent performing measurements.

    Location

    The location of the Endpoint Agent.

    SSID

    The service set identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    BSSID

    The base station ID (BSSID) or MAC address of the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    Roaming Events

    The number of times the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent changes, measured by the number of times the BSSID of the connected network changes.

    Phy Mode

    Describes which IEEE 802.11 specification standard is being used for the wireless connection, related to coverage range and speed optimization.

    Channel

    The channel used for the wireless connection with the access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    Channel Swap Events

    The number of times the wireless channel changed for the connected access point.

    Transmit Rate (Mbps)

    The Endpoint Agent host's transmission rate.

    Signal Quality (\%)

    The signal quality of the wireless connection, displayed as a percentage. A value of 0% implies an actual received signal strength indicator (RSSI) signal strength of -100 dBm. A value of 100% implies an actual RSSI signal strength of -50 dBm.

    Throughput

    The throughput measured by the Endpoint Agent.

    Retransmission Rate (%)

    The wireless transmission rate for Endpoint Agent experiences.

  4. BSSID Table: The BSSID table contains the following metrics:

    Metric

    Description

    BSSID

    The base station ID (BSSID) or MAC address of the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    SSID

    The service set identifier (SSID) of the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    Location

    The location of the Endpoint Agent.

    Number of Endpoints

    The number of Endpoint Agents being served by the same wireless access point, determined by the number of agents with the same BSSID.

    Phy Mode

    Describes which IEEE 802.11 specification standard is being used for the wireless connection, related to coverage range and speed optimization.

    Channel

    The channel used for the wireless connection with the access point serving the Endpoint Agent.

    Throughput

    The throughput measured by the Endpoint Agent.

    Retransmission Rate (%)

    The wireless transmission rate for Endpoint Agent experiences.

    Signal Quality (\%)

    The signal quality of the wireless connection, displayed as a percentage. A value of 0% implies an actual received signal strength indicator (RSSI) signal strength of -100 dBm. A value of 100% implies an actual RSSI signal strength of -50 dBm.

    Roaming Events

    The number of times the wireless access point serving the Endpoint Agent changes, measured by the number of times the BSSID of the connected network changes.

    Channel Swap Events

    The number of times the wireless channel changed for the connected access point.
