$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>
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.
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)
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>
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>
Sets the threshold for the 'High threshold action'. Range:
startup_screen = (info|histogram|scan window)
Which of the screens appears at program startup.
