I have been working on and testing a solution using WAEs to optimise a link between two sites both with WAEs. The TCP promiscuous mode service has been setup on both WAEs and WCCP appears to have successfully negotiated the connection etc to the WCCP router/switch at each end ("sh ip wccp", "sh ip wccp 61 view" and "sh ip wccp 61 view" commands all show the router and WAE are seen etc).
The problem I have is that the show commands to verify that all is working are not giving expected output - we can see connections being optimised under the "show tfo conn summ" (eg. T,T,T,T showing for app configured to do "TFO Only" optimisation)...
however the "show ip wccp" command on each WCCP router always shows "0" for Total Packets s/w Redirected. The packets MUST be getting redirected as the connection appears on the WAE as being optimised.
Any explanations for this would be appreciated.
On those two platforms, there are no counters available to display the number of packets redirected. You are left with the WCCP counters available on the WAE (show wccp gre).
