[WAN Metrics] How to update load info

Hi all,

I have a doubt regarding with the following hostapd configuration parameter:

# WAN Metrics
# format: <WAN Info>:<DL Speed>:<UL Speed>:<DL Load>:<UL Load>:<LMD>

According with the documentation:

# Downlink Load: Current load of downlink WAN connection (scaled to
255 = 100%)# Uplink Load: Current load of uplink WAN connection
(scaled to 255 = 100%)

How could I get the current load of the AP and, which is more complex, how
could I say, in execution time, to hostapd that the load has changed?

Thank you so much,
