Normal number of ip sessions

  • Updated 2 years ago
Would anyone be willing to run some commands on their aps for me so I can compare to see if we are 'normal'?
Specifically, 
sh station - how many current clients are on the access point?
sh for ip-sess  - how many current ip sessions are open on the access point?; are there a large number of sessions going to from port 3000?
sh log flash | include max - are there any errors listed?

On some of our access points, we are receiving "exceed maximum number of ip sessions" message, large percentage of ip sessions to maximum sessions, and lots of ip sessions going to/from port 3000.  I would just like to know how far away from normal we are.  Thanks.

3000 is the port used for AMRP, which allows the APs to communicate with each other to share sessions state, client roaming state, etc. How many APs do you have operating in the same management network?

I have a mixture of 520 AP330s and AP230s divided up into 19 management networks.  The smallest contains 3 access points and the largest contains 229 access points.  The management network of the access points that I am looking at now contains 13 access points.  Right now we have "Update hive members in the same subnet and VLAN" unchecked and "Update hive members within radio range" checked in the hive configuration.  On this particular access point, looking at 'sh for ip-sess', most of the port 3000 sessions seem to be with 7 out of 12 AMRP neighbors.
