I had one experience with ZD1100 in one school where we deployed around 10 AP's 7372's mostly. One AP is in the "Samsung classroom" where they booted up 40 tablets at once connecting to the AP.
WPA is on. After successful connection they logged in on local Samsung server.
At the same time while they were booting, ZD1100 processor was on 100% for 10-15 minutes. I wasn't even able to load a single page in administration. Each page was loading for like 10+ seconds or even 30 seconds. It was crazy.
After that it was fine and ocassionaly I see spikes at 100% which are lasting for a few seconds but sometime even a 2-3 minutes.
Firmware is 9.8.
1. Is that normal? Others have similar/same experience?
2. Is that caused because of WPA? or because 40 clients loaded at once?
3. If that because 40 clients loaded at once I wonder what will happen if 1000 clients loads at once? Limit is 1250 simultaneous. I havent had chance to have more than 600 devices on ZD1100 but this experience is new to me
Picture attached is not the real one when I had that problem, more like a visual add-on to this post :)
