Answer: When the load balancing feature is enabled, to check the load balance status of an AP, begin by:

  1. Logging into your controller's web GUI
  2. Navigate to the Monitor » Wireless » AP Information from the left sidebar.
  3. Once there, click on the Radio List tab option, and find the Loading column.

This column displays the current load-balancing status of each AP's radio, showing how client devices are distributed across the AP.

This information is crucial for ensuring that the load is evenly distributed, which helps in maintaining optimal network performance and avoiding overburdening any single AP. Regular monitoring of AP load balancing can significantly enhance network efficiency and user experience.
