Problems with the Dartmouth wireless SNMP data collection
Tristan Henderson, David Kotz
Dartmouth TR2003-480


The original Dartmouth wireless network study used SNMP to query the college's Cisco 802.11b access points. The perl scripts that performed the SNMP queries suffered from some problems, in that they queried inappropriate SNMP values, or misunderstood the meaning of other values. This data was also used in a subsequent analysis. The same scripts were used to collect data for a subsequent study of another wireless network. This document outlines these problems and indicates which of the data collected by the original scripts may be invalid.

Note: See http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~campus/ for more information. Revision 2 of 12/31/03 reflects updated information about the Balazinska paper. Revision 3 of 10/29/04 reflects a difference between the preliminary and final version of the Kotz/Essien journal paper.
