I am looking for how to track the number of wireless guest users that have used wireless during a month. I see the enterprise guest management options but that is real overkill in this situation because I only have two 1200 series autonomous APs that we want to track guest usage on.
If you are on the technical side of things you could modify the piece of code that I wrote for a WLC to create guest accounts. I am currently working on logging of the users that are created with this code. Then you could simply add up the users and and have date and times. Find the code here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/simple-swag/ The original intention of the code was a simple way for administrators to provide simple Lobby Ambassidor like function to a simple web interface and then provide customized guest user instruction page. In the background it uses ssh to talk to the controller and setup the account. Its written in PHP so feel free to try your hand at it.
if you have the wlc it is easy to get the active users. i have
an external authentication page that gathers information and sets it in a database guest 'log' file.
i miss the session end point as there is no event that occurs, necessarily, when a user goes away.
i also use this to check where the user is coming in from. we have many locations (clinics and hospitals, etc) and we offer guest wireless only when the facility is open otherwise the login won't be allowed.
alternatively turn on RADIUS AAA -- accounting. I'm going to check this next but it looks like it will create entries for start and end.

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
