I have a CISCO 5508 Wireless controller and I have attached some  Accesspoints CISCO 3501 , and I have noticed that in the  Wireless area scope  sometimes the time response is too slow,, and I think the problem is that someone in the wireless network is saturating it. I have the Solarwinds Engineer toolset and I wonder if there is a specific tool to monitor the Accesspoint  in order to figure or discover who is saturating the network. I tried but I don't know where I configure in the AP  the  community parameter. Can somebody tell me which tool I must use ?  and where I configure the community string in the CISCO 3501  AP?

There is only one tool which will allow you to do this - Cisco's Prime Infrastructure.  The problem is that you can't monitor a CAPWAP AP with standard SNMP - it tunnels all control traffic to the WLC, so you have to interrogate it, not the AP.  Similarly, you don't enter SNMP details into the AP; you do that on the WLC also.

Thank you! and also I would say that  Accesspoint AIRCAP device shares the bandwidth and it is not a switchable device.
