panel provides users with a real-time snapshot of the current Wi-Fi
environment. You can show or hide the dashboard and change its
location (left or right) using the

If TamoGraph detects a Wi-Fi adapter that can be used for
the dashboard includes the following indicators:
Scanner progress – the circular indicator that visualizes the
scanning progress. The circle represents a scan cycle, i.e. the
time needed to sweep all selected channels once.
Scanner cycle duration – the text above the horizontal line inside
the circle that indicates the time in seconds needed to sweep all
selected channels once.
Number of available adapters for passive surveys – the number below
the horizontal line inside the circle that indicates the number of
adapters being used for passive surveys.
Scanner cycle duration recommendations – the color of the circle
that indicates whether the scan cycle duration is optimal. A green
circle indicates optimal scan cycle duration. A yellow circle
indicates somewhat lengthy scan cycle duration. A red circle
indicates that scan cycle duration is too long and needs to be
shortened for better results. Hovering the mouse pointer over the
circle reveals a hint window with extended information and
Current signal strength – two bar indicators (for the 2.4 and 5 GHz
bands) that display the signal strength of the APs being monitored.
Clicking on the gear icons to the right of the indicators allows
you to specify which AP signals should be displayed. You can set
the indictor to display either the signal of the strongest of the
selected APs (by selected, we mean the APs that are checked in the
AP list,) or the signal of the strongest AP for the selected SSID.
Double-clicking on the bars toggles the display between signal
strength in dBm and percent.
Number of APs currently visible – two text labels (for the 2.4 and
5 GHz bands) that display the number of APs that have been seen
Signal strength chart – two histograms (for 2.4 and 5 GHz bands)
that display the signal strength history.
the dashboard panel is automatically expanded to include more data
related to the active survey being conducted. This includes the
associated AP name, channel number, PHY rate, noise, SNR levels (if
available), and a chart that displays the metrics being measured:
throughout, loss, round-trip time, PHY rate, and signal level. The
speaker icon allows you to enable or disable signal level
vocalization; when the button is pressed, the computerized voice
will periodically pronounce the current signal strength as you
conduct the active survey. Double-clicking on the AP name toggles
the text between the AP name, its MAC address (a.k.a BSSID), and
Both charts can be customized by using the context menu that is
displayed when you right-click on the charts.
