How effective is channelfly?

New Contributor II
I see channel-fly jumping to the overlapping channel a lot (2.4ghz) I am wondering how effective is this in an environment where 2.4ghz is noisy? 

should I go in CLI and Blacklist the overlapping channel?

Channel fly is more effective than manual heuristics such as 1/6/11. That's because it dynamically scores each channel it chooses based off ACTUAL throughout rather than predicted throughout.

In particular, sometimes overlapping channels with side interference will still outperform a busy non-overlapping channel. Or, you might be next to a very non-busy AP and even though Channelfly picked the same channel for both AP's, it's fine.

The key with Channelfly is that it's able to dynamically adapt to changing channel capacity. If you want to do a similar job, you basically need to run continuous surveys by hand!

It may also be worth knowing that Channel Fly version 2 is coming out, which will bring significant improvements to an already a great way of improving throughput.
