Glances displays the Wi-Fi hotspot names and signal quality. If Glances is ran as root, then all the available hotspots are displayed.
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-plugin wifi option or by
W key from the user interface.
