Is there any way to get the wifi performance using the Wifi Diagnostics?

I have a 802.11n network running on Apple TimeMachine.

The Wifi Diagnostics created diagnostics report but I don't know which log file would have this information?

Can someone point me to the right file?

When the Wi-Fi diagnostics tool finishes, the logs get saved to your desktop.

If that didn't happen or was deleted, you will have to find them from a backup or re-run the tool.

Depending on what performance you are monitoring, I would start with the two files to get a summary of the signal and noise of your Wi-Fi recording session:

  • link-events.log:
  • link-info.log:
  • I have the logs but which log file would have the performance numbers? Jan 2, 2013 at 21:15
