AVC for Aerohive management traffic

Is it possible to set up a custom application intended for displaying CAPWAP traffic usage between HMOL and an Aerohive device?

I've set up a custom app with the following rules:

UDP - 12222
HTTP - *.aerohive.com
HTTPS - *.aerohive.com

No usage yet and it's been about 16-18 hours or so. Theoretically, will this be captured or is management traffic exempt from AVC?

The end goal is to break down usage data to troubleshoot poor WAN connectivity at branch locations.

The L7 firewall only looks at user traffic and not management traffic. Even though CAPWAP bandwidth is negligible compared to user traffice, I agree with that it would be a nice feature to be able to monitor the CAPWAP bandwidth.

Can you log the CAPWAP traffic on your organisation's perimeter firewall?
