I have two Sepaton VLT archieving servers on either end of the network. The WAN consists of 100 Meg MPLS connection. On either side of the WAN are Gig interfaces connecting the router to the in-line module WAE and then gig to the Sepaton. When we run the archieving process, we see full optimization with good numbers on TFO, DRE and LZ; however, our max WAN throughput is only about 45 Meg and our LAN througput on the WAE-Sepaton interface (LAN) only max'es at 80 Meg. We have default policies applied on both WAEs and the Sepatons are the only devices on either end. We previously did an FTP test between Sepatons and it ran optimized with good end-to-end performace.
It almost seems that the WAEs (running 4.0.7) are pacing/throttling back on the Sepaton traffic.
Any ideas? I'd appreciate it.
