    Access Point Inaccurate Client Count?

    Fred Lipton

      A quick search of posts didn't return any relevant hits so I'm posing the question: who to believe?.  Our Cisco 4402 wifi controller lists a greater number of connected clients per AP than what's displayed in NPM.  For example, filtering the connected clients to an AP the controller returns 15 connections with the usual information per connection.  In NPM/Wireless the same AP shows only 10 connections.  Other times the count mismatch is reversed, NPM shows more connections than the controller.


      Resolving this may be a moot point as we're about to migrate to a pair of 5508's [in HA config] but I'm wondering, or concerned is a better word, that we'll see similar metric mismatches.  I set up the controller in SW like any other node using SNMP.


      So, which one is accurate: the controller, NPM, neither or both?  Perhaps more important, can I get them both to agree?


      Orion 2014.1.0, NPM 10.7.
