Hello, Someone has measurements or statistics for the amount of CAPWAP traffic generated by an access point . only information has been provided is that it is a very minimal amount of data.

I will try to set a capture on my switch, to try to collect this data by watching data on UDP port 12222, but I would appreciate any information.

Thank You.

Hi alsaza

The amount of data that a device sends to HM depends of many things, mainly on # of clients.
Normally, it is about 600K per device per day, assuming the following:

- 20 clients, connecting and disconnecting to the HM twice a day
- Normal device and client condition
- No config/image download.
