Ruckus ZD100: How to check users connected and disconnected time

Hi,

I am using Ruckus ZD1100. I have setted inactivity time out as 240 mins and grace time as 30 mins.

Still I am receiving complaints from my students as they are logged out in every few minutes. I have to prove that they are connected upto 240 mins. So I need to know the connected user start time and disconnected time.

How can I achieve this ?

Thank you,

Thanika

Hi Thanikasalam,

Log which you are showing indicates that user was kicked out from WLAN as they failed to authenticate correctly or there was a delay in entering authentication details.

I also noticed that you hit the bug - ER-1553 and i am sure that you have upgraded to latest 9.8 firmware and if you are still seeing the issue then good time to report the issue to Support.

As far as answering your question: - you can setup a syslog server then whenever any user connects to that WLAN - you can see the log which shows starts time and then you can track down on disconnected time. i know this is little rough but can be effective as you can do quick search on mac address, track repeat disconnects and keep them for record too

Thank you for your valuable reply. I have setted syslog server. I have copied 2 logs. I would like to understand the whole idea of this logs:

1. Leave WLAN with Session Time [44.41 sec]
2. disconnects from WLAN

---------------------------------------------- Full logs ---------------------------------------
02-03-2015 09:53:15 Local0.Info 192.168.76.2 Feb 3 09:53:17 syslog: eventd_to_syslog():User[ec:85:2f:59:d7:15] leave WLAN[EASBstudent] at AP[[email protected]:c9:a1:3d:9b:40] with Session Time[44.41 sec] RX Bytes[30581] TX Bytes[30395]

02-03-2015 09:53:15 Local0.Info 192.168.76.2 Feb 3 09:53:17 syslog: eventd_to_syslog():User[ec:85:2f:59:d7:15] disconnects from WLAN[EASBstudent] at AP[[email protected]:c9:a1:3d:9b:40]

------------------------------------------------------ end -------------------------------------

1. Leave WLAN with session time means user left or the AP forced to exit the user?
2. disconnects from WLAN by user or force disconnected by AP ?

can you clarify these ?

Thank you,

Thanika

Hi Thanika,

This is a generic log. To really find out whether "user was kicked out by AP" or "user went away on its own", you will have to take Over the air wireless capture as it will tell whether decision to exit(deauth or disassoc) came from AP or STA(user).

You can use packet capture feature on the ZD/AP to achieve this.Refer to KBA on support site to take this further.

Hope this helps.

Instead of adding to a thread from 2015, please open new questions, thanks.

You can collect client connectivity logs from the Administer::Diagnostics page, select Client Association in the debug components.

After time, click Save Debug Info to collect the logs.  Analyze your logs on the Support site "Rowdy" tool:
http://loganalyzer1.ruckuswireless.com/Rowdy/


You could also save the System Logs from the box below debug logs.  These show AP connectivity as well as client activity.
