Wireless Scan - help needed

Sun Nov 22, 2020 4:11 pm

I have a wireless script which is scheduled to run overnight but I need to add traffic detection script to prevent the wireless scan from running, In other words if a customer is streaming or downloading
the wireless scan will not run !

:local sub1
:set sub1 ([/system identity get name])
/interface wireless scan 0 duration=180 save-file="$sub1 wiscan.txt"

You can try something like this:
1) read number of packets/bytes from interface stats
2) wait 10 s
3) read it again, compute difference
4) If lower than X (some threshold you will have to choose) run the scan

But if your hardware can do it, use background scan. It can run in the background without affecting the traffic.
