Questions about mobility statistics

Here is the mobility statistics from one of my anchor controllers, notice the number of Handoff Requests Ignored, it is almost as much as the Handoff Requests Received. Is this normal?This number is incrementing and I wonder if this is the cause of slow access from my guest wlan. Please share your input.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Questions about mobility statistics

Handoff Requests Ignored

This counter is incremented when we receive an announce  (Groupcast to
entire mobility group)  and don't own the client (no mscb), or we are
the anchor and we don't respond to the announce because the foreign will
do this.

So kind of normal

Questions about mobility statistics

Hi,

I have only one controller but I also have a lot of packets of handoff; is this normal? here the counters

Rx Errors   152074

Handoff as Local Received 152074

And is it possible to avoid all of this handoff errors or messages from appearing in the statistics? Because at this moment I only have one WLC so I would expect no to have mobility events

Thanks
