The July 2018 release of Riverbed Xirrus Management System - Cloud (XMS-Cloud) is now available. We have added significant troubleshooting capabilities to help you resolve client issues quickly. With this release, you now have a new client health score dashboard widget, graphs of historical client connectivity metrics, filter clients per band, and SAML SSO integration, in addition to many other enhancements.
With this release, XMS-Cloud introduces a new health score to easily determine the current Wi-Fi health of a client. The score is determined by a combination of metrics and ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best). A new health score widget is available for the dashboard that identifies the 10 clients with the worst current health. From the widget, you can directly jump into an advanced troubleshooting screen for a specific client with a single click to enable quick problem resolution.
From the dashboard, click Add Widget and select the Clients (by Lowest Health Scores) widget from the pop-up window, then Add.
Access real-time and historical client Wi-Fi connectivity details to troubleshoot issues. New historical charts allow you to go back in time to determine root cause of a problem, such as authentications, roaming, connection to a new SSID, or infrastructure issues.
From the Clients (by Lowest Health Scores) widget, click on a client, then select Troubleshooting. Or from the Clients tab, click on the Client Hostname. Hover your mouse over the graph to connection and performance details about the client at any point in time. You can change the time scale from the drop-down at the upper right to show the past day, week, or month of data.

Administrators now have the ability to filter clients by a specific Wi-Fi band (5GHz and 2.4GHz) to help narrow down issues. The client list can be further filtered based on Profiles or Groups, giving administrators the flexibility to hone in on a specific group of users.
