Example for Using Performance Monitoring to Manage the Stadium Wi-Fi Usage

Example for Using Performance Monitoring to Manage the Stadium Wi-Fi Usage

This section describes how to use performance monitoring to obtain the network performance trend and take performance optimization measures accordingly when performance bottlenecks are detected.

Applicable Products and Versions

V300R002C00 or later versions

Networking Requirements

A stadium has Wi-Fi deployed and can accommodate 5000 spectators. The network administrator Jack wants to obtain Wi-Fi usage information of the stadium.

Requirement Analysis

Jack wants to obtain key data related to Wi-Fi usage during each game, which determines whether the stadium network needs to be expanded. The data includes the maximum number of concurrent associations, download and upload data volumes at peak hours, CPU usage of network devices, user online success rates, and roaming success rates.

Configuration Roadmap

  1. After eSight is installed, pre-defined device groups are created automatically. eSight automatically collects and displays key performance indicators (KPIs) of the corresponding device groups on the Performance Data page.
  2. Create a performance monitoring template.
  3. Create a performance monitoring task.
  4. View the performance overview data (list).
  5. View real-time performance data.
  6. Check historical performance data, set the conditions for querying historical data, and save the settings to My Favorites.
  7. Add the performance monitoring task to a Portal to start monitoring.
  8. After a counter value exceeds the threshold, alarms are generated in the system. After receiving an alarm, you can locate the fault cause by the device name and determine whether to purchase a service package with larger traffic volume by viewing the daily peak traffic.

Prerequisites

  • You have obtained all operation rights for Performance Management .
  • All network devices at the stadium including APs and AR511 have been added to eSight.

Procedure

  1. After eSight is installed, pre-defined device groups are created automatically. eSight automatically collects and displays KPIs of the corresponding device groups on the Performance Data page.

    1. Choose Performance > Performance Data from the main menu.

    2. Enter AP in the search box. Information of all monitored APs is displayed on the page.

  2. Create a performance monitoring template.

    1. Choose Performance > Monitoring Template from the main menu.

    2. In the navigation tree on the left, choose WLAN > AP.
    3. Click Create.
    4. On the displayed page, set Template name to AP Monitor Template.
    5. Click Add Performance Counter.
    6. In the Add Performance Counter dialog box, select all the counters in Available and click OK.
    7. Click OK. The created template is displayed in the list.

  3. Create a performance monitoring task.

    1. Choose Performance > Monitoring Settings from the main menu.

    2. In the navigation tree on the left, choose WLAN > AP.
    3. Click Create.
    4. On the displayed page, set Task Name to AP Monitor Task.
    5. Click Select Template. In the Select Template dialog box, select AP Monitor Template and click OK.
    6. Under Select Resource, select By Resource and then click Select Resource. In the Select Resource dialog box, select the corresponding AC and then click OK.

    7. Click OK. The created performance task is displayed in the list.

  4. Check historical performance data, set the conditions for querying historical data, and save the settings to My Favorites.

    1. In the list of monitored tasks, click next to a task to view historical performance data of the task.
    2. Click Add to Favorites and set Name to AP History Record, facilitating data monitoring in the future.

  5. Check real-time performance data.

    1. Select all the APs to be monitored and click Realtime Detail. In the dialog box that is displayed, select counters as shown in the following figure and click OK.

    2. The real-time performance data shows that the counter Number of associations removed due to limited AP capability remains high, indicating that the stadium network needs to be expanded. If not expanded, the stadium network cannot meet spectators' Wi-Fi access requirements.

Summary and Suggestions

Performance becomes more and more important in the Big Data era. Network administrators need to view historical performance data every week or month to obtain and analyze the network performance trend and take performance optimization measures accordingly when performance bottlenecks are detected.
