  • Clients
    • Client Inventory—The Client Inventory report provides information about the total number of clients and the type of connected networks. This information aids the administrators in planning for scalability and evaluate the deviations from the baseline. The report displays the client details summarized by all aggregation fields and includes the following details:

    • Guest—Displays the guests and guest session details for all the SSIDs for a specific time period. The Guest report provides visibility for all the users associated to the cloud guest network that assists the user in conducting campaigns and also provides analytics of the guest users in the network.

      Guest report does not support location based filtering for any selected device group, site, or label to ensure end user privacy protection.

    • Summary—Displays the details about the wireless and wired clients, and the usage details of the wireless and wired clients over a time period of one year. The Summary reports assists the user in measuring the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) trends over a time period of one year that aids the user in planning for scalability.

      In the Summary report, you can choose to generate a report from Trends such as Unique clients per day, Clients per SSID, Unique client sessions per day, Average client sessions per day, Average clients per day, and Usage over time. The Average clients per day is the number of concurrent users at a given time (updated every five minutes). Unique clients per day is the total number of clients that were seen for that day. For example, consider a scenario where four clients were connected in a day, and after every hour, one client disconnected and another was connected. Then, the count for Average clients per day was four and Unique clients per day was 27 (3+24 =27).

      You can further chose to generate a report form Top N Widgets such as Top clients by usage, Top OS by usage, Top APs by usage, Bottom APs by usage, Top sites by WLAN usage, and Bottom sites by WLAN usage.
