       $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 channel|signal|open|chan/sig|open/sig|open/chan/sig)
       (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:

       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: 0..99%.

       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: 1..60s.

       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: -120..-60dBm.

       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: -59..120dBm.

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