How much management data does Cloudtrax Use?
Access points check into Cloudtrax every five minutes to report usage data and check for any configuration updates.
The check-in size can vary quite a bit based on the number of users and how many distinct layer-seven traffic types Clooudtrax detects.
Check-ins and replies for Open Mesh Access Points running version 5xx firmware with ten users or less are around 15 KB.
- This amount equates to approximately 288 check-ins or less per node over each 24 hour day.
- Across the network, this represents approximately 4.3MB or less of data per-node, so a network of 10 nodes would use approximately 43 MB of data each 24 hour day, or 1.3 GB each month.
