Hello all,

My name is Michael Mehari and I have a question regarding station 
variables from hostapd.

As an access point daemon, hostapd keeps track of all stations and I 
want to make use of certain variables from the stations in order to 
construct a Control and Decision Engine (CDE).

The station variables that I am looking for include but not limited to 
transmitted and received packets/bytes, quality indicators (RSSI, LQI, 
noise), data rate, retransmissions and fragmentation of packets.

For now I have tried using a hostapd client program to read unsolicited 
messages but the variables are not included in the events forwarded by 

Therefore, I would like to ask if this kind of application is possible 
with in hostapd and if so please let me know.

Best regards,
