nsight-policy (global-config-mode)

Creates an NSight policy and enters its configuration mode. Starting with WiNG 5.9.4, Extreme NSight is a separate target, with the Extreme NSight server enabled on an external VM appliance. On the WiNG controller, the NSight policy configures this external NSight server's IP address or hostname.

Configure the NSight policy and apply to the RF Domain context. When applied, the RF Domain manager posts statistics (polled from devices within the RF Domain) to the external Extreme NSight server specified in the policy.
