Aggressiveness of Protecting the Network

I've searched and searched, but I cannot find a definitive explanation of the differences in "aggressive, auto, and conservative" network protection. Under the rogue classification policy, it allows you to chose the "aggressiveness of protecting your network" but I can't find out what auto vs conservative vs aggressive actually does. Is it different levels of jamming, alerting, what exactly will conservative network protection mean?
I sincerely appreciate any help.

Hi Steve,

Our legacy implementation is to send one de-auth packet per background cycle scan cycle (Conservative interval).

This has been enhanced from 5.1 where we have several options to configure:
- With the aggressive interval, AP will send the de-auth frame every 2 seconds.
- With the auto interval, AP will dynamically send out de-auth frame based on the current wireless traffic load of a radio.
- With conservative interval, a de-auth frame will be sent out per background scan cycle (this is the default behavior pre-5.1).

I hope this helps.
