Athstats

This is a modified version of the athstats tool, available with the MadWiFi driver for atheros chipset-based cards. It periodically queries the driver for measurements and reports them to the experiment database, using OML. At present, the measurements reported are,

  • total number of MAC frames transmitted successfully (at senders)
  • total number of MAC frames dropped due to excessive retries (at senders)
  • total number of MAC frames dropped due to FIFO errors (at senders)
  • total number of MAC frames dropped due to filtering (at senders)
  • total number of short retries (for 802.11 RTS frames) (at senders)
  • total number of long retries (for 802.11 DATA frames) (at senders)
  • total number of MAC frames received successfully (at receivers)
  • total number of frames dropped due to CRC errors (at receivers)
  • total number of frames dropped due to FIFO errors (at receivers)
  • total number of frames dropped due to PHY errors (at receivers)
