I noticed that my logs are full of the following events (I've removed the MAC addresses and any other data that might be sensitive)

Code:

This seems to come only from devices connected to the 2.4GHz SSID and there's literally thousands of these entries per day. Is this just devices disconnected and reconnecting to the WiFi? If it is, the strange part would be that it's mainly from devices that don't move (thermostat, wall switches, etc.) so I'm not sure why they would disconnect all the time.

Thanks,
Harry

P.S. I also noticed a whole bunch of these messages:

Code:
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip

Wireless Lan Controller Event Daemon

Could be numerous things, DHCP renewal, Group Key etc, its debugging info to help diagnose connection issues.

Personally I kill the wlceventd at startup to stop these logged messages, never ever noticed wifi connection issues in all the years Ive been killing this daemon. Not 100% on the hostapd messages... I don't have them in my logs and may also be tied to wlceventd

Code:
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
Sep 27 14:44:32 kernel: REDACTED not mesh client, can't update it's ip
These came about with AImesh2.0 I believe. I don't use AImesh or the Wifi guest networks and if I remember right... using dnsmasq.postconf I was able to remove the br1 and br2 interfaces which stopped these messages from appearing in the log
