AD9361 RSSI Calibration through Linux Drivers

I'm working on an AD9361 (FMCOMMS3 board) with Linux project, and I had a few question about the rssi when receiving signals.  


  1. Is the RSSI linear? i.e. If I increase the transmit power by 20 db, will I see a 20 db increase at RSSI?  What about 40?  From my tests it appears so but I wanted to double check.
  2. Is it possible to calibrate the RSSI through the Linux shell or libiio?
  3. What does the calibration generate? A table? Offset? Something else?
  4. Does calibration automatically save it to non-volatile memory?
