Compare Filters Tile
You can select the filters you want to compare from the Compare Filter drop-down.
The drop-down displays existing saved filters and those created newly as well, and you can compare up to a maximum five filters at a time. After selecting the filter, click Compare to initiate data comparison between the filters selected. The order of the filter selection is maintained across all the graphs and table. This report cannot be scheduled.
The Compare button is disabled if you select more than five filters or less than one filter.
- DataCube: select from Airtime Utilization, Network, and Clients from the menu.
- X axis and Y axis: select the parameter to display on the axis. The options in these menus change based on the data cube selection. For example, if you selected Airtime Utilization, then some of the parameters you can choose to display in the X and Y axis include Avg Airtime Utilization, Avg Airtime Busy, Avg Airtime Tx/Rx, and Total Traffic.
- Circle Size (Z Axis): displays the data by the size fo the circle. For example, the Total Traffic value in GB is shown as a smaller circle in comparison to the one in TB.
Note: Each filter data is represented as a circle with a specific color for the filter. For example, in this image the scatter plot circle displays are for the floor1 filter in blue and floor2 filter in yellow.
- Group By: this option allows you to group the scatter plots based on the AP, Ap Group, Zone, System, Domain, and WLAN/SSIDs. Pausing the pointer over the circle displays a summary of the data point.
Click Apply to apply these parameters. Based on the parameters selected, the Overview graph is refreshed and plotted for your analysis.
You can toggle the circles below the chart (on and off) to display or not display the filters they represent.Note: No two parameters in the X, Y, Z axis fields can be the same.
