Does it turn off background scanning option if it enables channel fly?

Hi dear.

Ruckus have two tech. for channel management.

Does it turn off background scanning option if it enables channel fly?

Or if it enables channel fly, background scanning is automatic off though it checked background scanning option?

Plz let me know about it.

Both Self-Healing methods ChannelFly and Background Scanning, use the 20 sec (default) background scanning to look at other channels than the one they are servicing clients on, to build a table of interference/SSIDs seen on the other channels.  If the CF or BS thresholds for a channel change is met, Background Scanning will move 2.4G to channel 1/6/11, while ChannelFly utilizes all 11 of the 2.4G channels available (in USA).  But yes, you need the bottom Background Scanning on, for either Self-Healing method to analzye other than service channel info.

If when it enables CF, it disables BG option, does not CF works?
