Hi everyone.

We are doing POC for multicast streaming with R710 managed SZ100.

We wonder what means number of airtime for AP managed SZ100.

We typed "get airtime wlanxx"

it issued the follwowing msg,

rkscli: get airtime wlan32
Raw counters:
Total:        830      33E
Busy:           0        0
Tx:           700      2BC
Rx:           130       82
OK

What mean the number above?

In Tx, what means 700?

Plz let me know about it.

Thanks.

These are packet counters.  Tx = transmit, Rx = receive, Busy = interference.

You have very clean air to show no busy packets.

Hi Michael.

700 is 70.0%? or 700%? or 700 packets?

packet counter, not percentage
do you have problems?
to test multicast POC, disable directed multicast on the WLAN, and be sure your network is setup for multicast routing correctly.

Hi Michael.

Customer want to know that.

In SZ100, that shows as 70%.

But in ap, that shows as 700.



Additional question, why must directed multicast disable?

I thought it must eable because it increase capacity as fast speed like unicast.

We work multicast POC with disabling directed multicast and enabling directed multicast.

We found that when it enables directed multicast, multicast streaming performance is good.

Test devices was about 30-40.
