Enables DPI application recognition logging. It also sets the logging level.

DPI is an advanced packet analysis technique, which analyzes packet and packet content headers to determine the nature of network traffic. When enabled, DPI inspects packets of all flows to identify applications (such as, Netflix, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and extract metadata (such as, host name, server name, TCP-RTT, etc.) for further use by the WiNG firewall.

Configured on WiNG 7.1.X controller and pushed to the following WiNG 5.9.X APs:

  • Access Points — AP7502, AP7522, AP7532, AP7562, AP7602, AP7612, AP7622, AP7632, AP7662, AP8163, AP8543, AP8533
