Hello members,

What is the command to identify if ACE is initiating TCP RST?

Is there a way to overcome or change timers/window/ect, if ACE do initiate TCP RST?

Thanks in advance members.

There are some default timeouts e.g. idle tcp sessions 60 minutes. You can change those if desired.

Create a TCP Parameter Map change what you want and apply it globally. If you want to check what happens with a flow you imho need to capture packets in the corresponding context.

Maybe someone else has even better advice.

  • Cisco Employee,

you can use the following command to see the TCP stats.

show np 1 me-stats "-s tcp"

There are RESET counters.

However, you don't know why the reset was generated and modifying all kind of parameters without knowing the true cause of the RESET is a little bit dangerous.

You should capture a sniffer trace and try to understand the reason of the reset.

Thanks Giles.

Very useful command

show np 1 me-stats "-s tcp"

I'll look at the capture file that was done couple of days ago.

I'm attaching the show output, just collected. Any clues will be appriciated.

Hi Gilles,

I have a screenshot of a capture and thinking of sharing this in private, if your time permits. Please let me know.
