how to read log analysis tool "clients sections"

  • Updated 2 years ago

I am new to the ruckus, and I need an information about the log.
I need to know about the interval time about client uptime and any others detail about my client behavior. 

Below I've just found it the ruckus support website which it has a tool to create a few report about the AP or ZD. Here is the link I use https://loganalyzer1.ruckuswireless*com/Rowdy/

So, lucky to find that tools. Thank you for the support. 
But I have a question about it. I really know how to read the log, especially for clients log.
Is there any help/guide so I can be able to read the log?

I still don't know how to exactly read the detail about the log information, like below:

May I get the answer?
Thank you,

The top is Transmit and Receive packets specific to your wireless client, so I think you might

appreciate greater explanation of the four QOS stacks and what the columns stand for and mean.

AP CLI command: get mqstats.

Client media queue and station information, in packets, accumulated
since STA associates and discarded when client roams.

# enq = original data packets queued for transmission.  # deq = the number of packets
transmitted.  # reenq = number of packets

that are attempted to be transmitted again (re-enqueued).  # deact is related to transmission
scheduling, and is not meaningful.

qued:  # of packets currently in
this queue.  Will usually be 0 but sometime you can catch it with a few

ovrflw: # packets dropped from tail of
queue due to the queue being ‘full’ (at the max limit for this packet class)

enq: # of packets enqueued to the tail
of the queue

deq: # of packets dequeued from the head
of the queue (includes retries)

reenq: # of packet re-enqueued to head
of the queue (due to retries)

deact: # of times this queue was
deactivated from the scheduler due to being empty (usually not important)

XRetries:  # of packets dropped due
to excessive number of retries (usually 20).

XTlimits indicates how many times packets exceeded the
holding time limit. If the AP can't dequeue the packet before holding time
expires (these holding time limits are different for different types of traffic
meaning, data, background, video, voice) it will drop it.

XTlimit value is significant in the support info. All queue columns showing
some major figures, usually indicates too much interference or too much
incoming data from the wire side.

Look for too much broadcast traffic on the network, and how big is the
broadcast domain, and what type of clients are on the network?

If interference on the radio band doesn’t look bad, it may be wire traffic
driving client queue limits to max.
