Glances displays the Wi-Fi hotspot names and signal quality. If Glances is ran as root, then all the available hotspots are displayed.

Note

You need to install the wireless-tools package on your system.

In the configuration file, you can define signal quality thresholds:

  • "Poor" quality is between -100 and -85dBm
  • "Good" quality between -85 and -60dBm
  • "Excellent" between -60 and -40dBm

It’s also possible to disable the scan on a specific interface from the configuration file ([wifi] section). For example, if you want to hide the loopback interface (lo) and all the virtual docker interfaces:

[wifi]
hide=lo,docker.*
# Define SIGNAL thresholds in dBm (lower is better...)
careful=-65
warning=-75
critical=-85

You can disable this plugin using the --disable-wifi option or by hitting the W key from the user interface.
