Configuring RF Load Balancing 269
Assigning Radios to
Load Balancing
Assigning radios to specific load balancing groups is optional. When you
do this, MSS considers them to have exactly overlapping coverage areas,
rather than using signal strength calculations to determine their
overlapping coverage. MSS attempts to distribute client sessions across
radios in the load balancing group evenly. A radio can be assigned to only
one group.
To assign radios to load balancing groups, use the following command:
set ap ap-num radio radio-num load-balancing group name
Use the rebalance parameter to configure the radio to disassociate its
client sessions and rebalance them whenever a new radio is added to the
load balancing group.
To remove a radio from its specified load balancing group, use the
following command:
clear ap apnumber radio radio-num load-balancing group
Specifying Band
Preference for RF
Load Balancing
If a client supports both the 802.11a and 802.11b/g bands, you can
configure MSS to steer the client to a less-busy radio on a MAP for the
purpose of load balancing.
A global band-preference option controls the degree that a MAP with
two radios attempts to conceal one of its radios from a client with the
purpose of steering the client to the other radio.
Use the following command to cause clients that support both the
802.11a and 802.11b/g radio bands to be steered to a specific radio on
the MAP for the purpose of load balancing:
set band-preference {none | 11bg | 11a}
