Common Operations

Wi-Fi Network Counters

Wi-Fi network counters provide network administrators with a quick summary of their Wi-Fi network infrastructure for the selected location. The counters are accessible in the top-right corner on the CV-CUE UI and also serve as a shortcut to quickly drill down to more details. The counters provide the following information.

Managed Wi-Fi Devices

Active and inactive status of managed Wi-Fi devices including Access Points (APs), sensors and network detectors, and if any of the devices are running an outdated firmware version or configuration.

Wi-Fi Clients

Types of clients that are currently connected to the managed Wi-Fi network.

Threat-Posing Devices

Presence of threat-posing devices, such as, rogue, misconfigured APs, rogue clients, misbehaving authorized clients.


Raised alerts related to Wi-Fi performance and security, and system health.


Total number of switches, active switches, inactive switches, and discovered switches.


Global search helps to find a client, AP, or switches by typing the MAC or IP address, user name, switch name or the device name.

Global search is placed next to Global counters, at the top-right corner of the page, across the Dashboard and Access pages.

Only those clients/devices that are available on a selected folder or floor can be searched. Therefore, if a client, say LAP-ATN-424, is not connected to an SSID on the selected folder or floor, then the search will not show any results.

When you type the (full or partial) MAC or IP address, User Name, Switch Name, or the device name in the Global Search box, a detailed information of the device is displayed. Refer to Clients, Access Points or Switch section that provide more information on clients and APs.

You must make a note of the following points when using Global Search:
  • Global Search is not case-sensitive.
  • The search results are segregated for clients, access points, managed switches and discovered switches. The search result shows the device/client name, irrespective of the search criteria used.
  • It lists out the devices/ clients as you type the string or substring. For example, if you type lap, the search lists only the first 10 instances that have lap as part of their name or username along with a See More link. On clicking See More, you are redirected to the page with the complete search results.
  • The search result shows the device/client name, irrespective of the search criteria used.
  • You can search for clients in all categories:
    • Clients currently associated to an Arista AP.
    • Clients associated to an Arista AP in the past .
    • Clients that are trying to or have tried to connect (but failed) to an Arista AP.
  • It does not support pattern-based search with the use of special characters such as * or ?. For example, the Global Search will not list any results if you type la*.

Table level Operations

CV-CUE provides a set of table level operations for the monitoring tables. These operations are available for the monitoring tables available on the MONITOR tab. Some or all the operations are applicable for the tables. These set of operations help users to filter the data or change the view of the table according to their convenience.

All the operations are available on the right top corner of the table.

Table level operations are:
  • Freeze Columns: Freeze Columns operation allows user to freeze or unfreeze the columns on the table. To know more about this operation refer Freeze Columns.
  • Add/Remove Columns: Add/Remove Columns operation is used to add or remove multiple columns. To know more about this operation refer Add/Remove Columns.
  • Filter: Filter operation helps user to filter the data. This filtering of data helps user to either sort the data based on certain criteria or search any specific data. Depending on the column on which filter is to be applied, the filtering criteria may vary. You can filter the data by providing the range of values, or can always select the appropriate value from the provided options and many more.
  • Full Screen: Selecting the Full Screen operation allows user to view the table in full screen mode. The same operation helps user to exit from full screen mode.

Freeze Columns

A vertical line on the monitoring table divides the table in two. The left section contains freeze columns. These columns are locked, making them always visible when scrolling vertically or horizontally in an open document. The right section contains unfreeze columns. These columns are unlocked.

Freeze Columns operation allows user to freeze or unfreeze these columns. Not more than five columns can be freeze. For every table there are at least two bi-default columns that are always freeze and can never be unfreeze.

To Freeze or unfreeze columns:
  1. Click the Freeze Columns icon on the top right corner of the table.

    List of all the columns with checkbox adjacent to their names appear.

  2. Select or unselect the column you prefer to freeze or unfreeze.

Add/Remove Columns

Add/Remove Columns operation adds or removes the columns from the table. Bi-default all the columns are added in the table.

To add or remove the column:
  1. Click the Add/Remove Columns icon on the top right corner of the table.

    List of all the columns with checkbox adjacent to their names appear.

  2. Select or unselect the column you prefer to add or remove.


Widgets in CV-CUE allow you to view or retrieve the data using the filters. They are available to the right top corner of the widget.

The available filters are:
  • SSID Filter
  • Frequency Band Filter
  • Duration Filter
  • Mode of Communication
  • Conferencing Apps Filter
  • Any Failure
  • Any Issue
    Note: All the filters may not be available for all the widgets. Their availability may vary for every widget.

SSID Filter

The information for charts or widgets can also be viewed for specific SSID. Selecting a specific SSID from the drop-down provides relevant data for the selected SSID. Selecting All SSIDs option provides aggregated data on a graph for all the SSIDs. The default value is All SSIDs.

Frequency Band Filter

The data can be filtered based on frequencies. The data for applications working on the selected frequency is provided. The possible values for the frequency band filter are:
  • 2.4 GHz
  • 5 GHz
  • 6 GHz
  • All Bands
The default value is All Bands.

Duration Filter

You can view or fetch the information for the following time intervals:
  • 2 hours
  • 4 hours
  • 8 hours
  • 12 hours
  • 1 day
  • 1 week
  • 1 month
Selecting the specific time slot will provide data accordingly. For example, selecting 2 hours will provide statistical data for last 2 hours.
Note: All the provided time intervals may not be available for every widget.

Mode of Communication

This option is only specific for the Application Latency's baseline graph. Select the mode of communication from the following options:
  • Wired and Wireless
  • Wired
  • Wireless

    The default value is Wired/Wireless.

Conferencing Applications Filter
