Client Probe Request Data Push


You can now collect and analyze the probe request data captured by your IgniteNet devices with the "Client Probe Request Data Push" config option. You can find this option under the wireless config page, in the advanced settings section.

Output Format

The data pushed to the user-specified URL will be in JSON format. The device collects probe requests for 15 seconds, then POSTs one client record at a time, to the specified URL.

The data includes:
  • ap_mac: The MAC address of the device.  This is the "main MAC" of your device - the same one you see on the dashboards.
  • client_mac: The MAC address of the client followed by the timestamp of when the client was seen (based on the device's time).
  • rssi: The client's signal (dBm).
  • ssid: The (first) SSID on the radio that received the client probe request.
Here's an example:

POST /api/storage/probe-request HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: curl/7.38.0
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Content-Length: 108

"client_mac":"b010416006b2 2016-06-10 16:00:53",
"rssi":"-71 dBm",
