I've started evaluating a 2U with 6 ath10k nics for multiple channel 
capture using airodump or tcpdump. Metageek's Eye P.A. tool is fairly 
useful in visualizing things like air time usage and retry rates, but 
I'm still on the fence as to whether Wireshark's built-in analysis tools 
are good enough for generating meaningful comparisons.
