Channel Utilization

The Channel Utilization widget shows the AP band utilization (as a percentage value) for the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands for the selected duration.

The date is averaged over 15 minute intervals.

You can select the time interval from the drop-down list in the top right corner of the widget.

Charts that show information about channels other than the operating channels of the AP show the most accurate information when the AP has a dedicated scanning radio. APs that use background scanning show a snapshot of the network that might have changed since the time of the last scan.
