Wireless Network Manager 3.5 Administration Guide

Dashboard

The Dashboard provides a global map that displays all of your wireless deployment sites around the world.

  • The deployment details regarding the total number of devices and total traffic appear when you hover over each access point location on the map.
  • The time slider tool at the top of the screen, can be used to adjust the time period displayed.

    The choices are:

    • Last Day: events that have taken place within the previous 24 hours
    • Last Week: events that have taken place within the previous 7 days
    • Last 30 Days: events that have taken place within the previous 30 days
  • The Access Point Status in the top half of the screen displays AP statistics for access points on-line, off-line, unmanaged, and with expired licenses.
  • Alert Center is the first of seven bars across the middle of the screen that can be clicked to display traffic data summaries and visual overviews. When the main screen first comes up, Alert Center is active. Clicking the Alert Center bar lists the most recent alerts. The columns display:

    • Time
    • Priority
    • Device involved
    • Type of alert
    • Subtype (picked up by which type of security policy)
    • Source access point
  • The Threat Center bar shows the same screen but with the most recent threats in the bottom panel.
