ap collector visualizes data related to access points.
Example Netdata charts
How it works
It does the following:
iw devsearching for interfaces that have
From the same output it collects the SSIDs each AP supports by looking for lines
For each interface found, it runs
iw INTERFACE station dump.
From the output is collects:
- rx/tx bytes
- rx/tx packets
- tx retries
- tx failed
- signal strength
- rx/tx bitrate
- expected throughput
For each interface found, it creates 6 charts:
- Number of Connected clients
- Bandwidth for all clients
- Packets for all clients
- Transmit Issues for all clients
- Average Signal among all clients
- Average Bitrate (including average expected throughput) among all clients

You can only set
ap_update_every=NUMBER to change the data collection frequency.
