wism module tuning?

We use the Ciso WISM solution and have a wism ctlr (4.0.217.0) with 57 AP's. During the day we have +/-650 users on this ctrl. (the other has 81 AP;'s and +/-500 users)

Most users are concentrated in classrooms.

In the snmp trap logs we see concentrated in time during the day a lot (+/- 150) of 'AAA Authentication Failure for UserName:xxxxxx User Type: WLAN USER' messages.

There are complains from the users about maintaining the wireless connection.

Also there's sometimes in this busy period a swap from the primary radius srv (Radiator) to the secondary.

Is there a best practice for this? In the 'off hours' everything works fine.

Re: wism module tuning?

You might want to check on your EAP timout values.

"show advanced eap" from the CLI and consider increasing the timeout values.

Re: wism module tuning?

Thanks for this information. I found these values. The default values??

(WiSM-slot11-1) >show advanced eap

EAP-Identity-Request Timeout (seconds)........... 1

EAP-Identity-Request Max Retries................. 20

EAP Key-Index for Dynamic WEP.................... 0

EAP Max-Login Ignore Identity Response........... enable

EAP-Request Timeout (seconds).................... 1

EAP-Request Max Retries.......................... 2

Is there any documentation what these parameters do?

EAP-Identity-Request Timeout vs EAP-Request Timeout ??

Re: wism module tuning?

The defaults are normally sufficient, unless you're using EAP-FAST, in which case you're supposed to up the wait timer from 10seconds, to 20.
