Re: APs monitoring.

It's kind of hard to have a dynamic visual representation of the RF environnement. The main problem is the noise made by the network itself. The more user, the less SNR you have left to work with. It's an always moving network.

I manage to get a good representation of my network with ekahau. I did a site survey when my network was in full use. There is a tool to simulate network usage in the software and you can see where you will first have problem if the load increase.

Other then that, it's a matter a monitoring network use and noise on wlse or other controler type so that it does not get bigger on average that the value you planned.
