       $HOME/.wavemonrc - wavemon configuration file


       wavemonrc is the per-user configuration file for wavemon(1).  This page
       describes its individual configuration options.  Each corresponds to  a
       configuration  item of the Preferences screen (F7 key), whose on-screen
       name is shown in parentheses.

       interface = <ifname>
              Selects the wireless interface to use.

       cisco_mac = (on|off)
       (Cisco-style MAC addresses)
              If enabled, display MAC addresses using  lower-case  hex  digits
              separated by dots rather than colons.

       sort_order                        =                        (channel|rev
       (Scan Sort Order)
              Determines the ordering used in the scan window:  (rev)  channel
              sorts  in ascending (descending) order of channel number, signal
              in descending order of signal strength, and open  in  descending
              order  of  openness. The combined variants chan/sig and open/sig
              sort first by channel/openness  and  then  by  signal  strength;
              their combined functionality is provided by open/chan/sig.

       stat_updates = <n>
       (Statistics updates)
              Time   interval  for  polling  new  statistics  (including  scan
              refresh). Range: 10..4000ms.

       lhist_slot_size = <n>
       (Histogram update cycles)
              Number of samples used per each histogram slot. For example,  if
              the  stat_updates  interval is 500ms and the histogram slot size
              is 4, the histogram is moved one slot further every  2  seconds.
              Range: 1..64.

       meter_smoothness = <n>
       (Level meter smoothness)
              Determines  the  responsiveness  of  level  meters, tracking the
              moving average rather than following each new sample. The  given
              value specifies the percentage of the history (the 'inertia') of
              preceding samples. A value of 0  disables  this  option.  Range:

       info_updates = <n>
       (Dynamic info updates)
              Sets  refresh  rate for dynamic device parameters (e.g. bitrate)
              and the refresh  interval  for  the  Scan  window  (F3).  Range:

       override_auto_scale = (on|off)
       (Override scale autodetect)
              Override  the  auto-scaling  of  the  bar  graphs and histogram,
              allowing you to set your own scales.

       min_signal_level, max_signal_level = <n>
       (Minimum signal level, Maximum signal level)
              Set the left and right boundaries of the  signal  level  scales.
              Ranges: -128..-60dBm (minimum) and -59..120dBm (maximum).

       min_noise_level, max_noise_level = <n>
       (Minimum noise level, Maximum noise level)
              These  work  similar  to  the  signal boundary settings. Ranges:
              -128..-60dBm (minimum) and -60..120dBm (maximum).

       random = (on|off)
       (Random signals)
              Switches on a fancy random generator for testing.

       lo_threshold_action = (disabled|beep|flash|beep+flash)
       (Low threshold action)
              Issue a warning  at a given threshold at the lower  end  of  the
              signal scale. It is meant for alarming you when a signal appears
              at the receiver.

       lo_threshold = <n>
       (Low threshold)
              Sets the threshold value for the 'Low threshold action'.  Range:

       hi_threshold_action = (disabled|beep|flash|beep+flash)
       (High threshold action)
              Analogous  to  lo_threshold_action, only this time the threshold
              is at the upper end of the scale and  the  action  is  performed
              when  the  signal  level  drops below it. The acoustic signal is
              also different in order to be easily  distinguishable  from  the
              lower  one. Correctly adjusted, this little fellow will tell you
              when you should move closer to the base station.

       hi_threshold = <n>
       (High threshold)
              Sets the threshold  for  the  'High  threshold  action'.  Range:

       startup_screen = (info|histogram|scan window)
       (Startup screen)
              Which of the screens appears at program startup.
