I'm working on estimating available bandwidth at a node in an ad hoc network
using cisco 350 series. Ideally I would want to measure the fraction of time
the card is not busy ( i.e. not transmitting /receiving + not blocked by
virtual carrier sensing or normal carrier sensing).
Any pointers to how to go about this?. Plus is there some driver documentation
and/or developers guide to check what level of information about the MAC
control packets are available at the driver level?
I would really appreciate any help on this!
