Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

Hi,

 

Is there a quick way to report on the peak client count for each AP in a network on the Meraki Dashboard?

 

We are trying to work out trends, and also list any AP's which are in 'high density' locations (ie constantly over 30 concurrent clients).

 

Cheers,

Bobby

You can sort the list of accesspoint with the number of current clients.

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

I was hoping there would be a graph plotting the concurrent clients per AP, did I imagine it, or is it on the dashboard view somewhere, or do I have to put this feature in via the 'make a wish' button? 😎

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

Ideally I would like to see a graph and/or stats within the pass month (or select time period) of AP's vs client concurrency number.

Actually I think I found it, in 'Wireless' -> 'Monitor' -> 'Wireless Troubleshooting' . Now how does one download these stats in say a CSV format??

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

You can download the page @redsector mentioned in CSV using the button at the top.

 

Other than that This API call would probably be the best way to pull this data:

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

I think if its an API call that's needed, this one looks more inline with what I'm after?

 

https://api.meraki.com/api_docs#aggregated-connectivity-info-for-this-network-grouped-by-clients

 

I'm very new to using the API, how does one use the parameters? any tips would be most helpful!

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

@Meraki888 the API you reference is part of Wireless Health 

 

https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Wireless_Health

 

It's not going to tell you the number of clients connected to an AP, it's going to tell you how many failures for various tests have happened over a period of time. 

 

I mean, if that's what you are really after then by all means, use whichever API call gives you the data you want. 

 

The call I suggested will tell you how many clients are connected to a give AP, for the time period specified. It won't give you a count though... It'll give you a blob of JSON with details for each client, you'd then have to count that yourself in the script you're running to hit the API. 

 

For the parameters, using them depends on the method you're using to interact with the API. Personally, I use Python, but to build on the curl example in the docs it'd be like this:

 

curl -L -H 'X-Cisco-Meraki-API-Key: <key>' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -X GET 'https://api.meraki.com/api/v0/devices/{serial}/clients?t0=1579274691'

 

There the value for t0 is a time and date in Epoch time https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time

 

And timespan is just the number of seconds you want to report on.

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

The chart that is providing me the correct information is on the wireless health tab, hence why I chose that API.

 

I'm after the values for peak concurrent number of clients over a period of time, seems like i would have to write a small program to give me the figures I want.

 

Would there be an equivalent (and or easier without additional programming) to get this figure via SNMP?

Re: Report on peak concurrent clients on dashboard

The only count I can find on the wireless health tab is below, but that is for the whole selected time period.  Is that what you are looking for?
