Throughput Testing on Hewlett Packard MSM765 WAC or MSM 310 WAPs

We instal and support a number of sites using HP Hewlett Packard MSM765 WACs with MSM 310 (and other) WAPs.  We are conducting some post installation heat maps to confirm sufficient wireless coverage in all areas.  I'd also like to perform some throughput testing to show what speeds a client can expect to achieve.

 

Does anyone know if there is a feature / function on the controller and / or the APs to measure throughput?

 

We also supply and install a competitor (to HP) product which has such a featuer.  The competing product has a deamon that runs on each of the APs and also the controller.  It can also be installed on a client laptop and throughput testing is perfomed and the results appended to a CSV file.  The test works by sending a nunmber of UDP packets which are used to test the performance of the wireless coverage.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

I'm not aware of such a feature in the MSM series WLC or APs. Fluke Airmagnet will do this very nicely with heatmaps for coverage and throughput maps with iperf support.
