Information about Wireless Timers
This feature allows you to set the authentication timeout duration for the client's first attempt to associate with the controller. After the client is authenticated, the controller uses the default 10-second timeout duration.
In a situation where clients seek other APs due to an AP failure causing a gap in the wireless coverage area, the AP after it reassociates sends reports on the client's connectivity to the controller. Based on these AP reports, the controller increases the transmit power of the AP to reduce the coverage gap. This feature addresses the need for AP statistics report to be sent to the controller at an interval of 60 seconds. This report is sent from the controller to the accounting server every 60 seconds. This helps reduce the delay in accounting data usage by a device.
Restrictions for Wireless Timers
The AAA interim accounting interval must be a multiple of the RRM CHD Report interval. The tolerance for odd AP CHD report value is 30 seconds.
For example, if AP CHD report value is 60 seconds, then the AAA accounting interim interval value id is in multiples of 60, 120, 180 seconds, and so on.
