Can someone please talk to me about how WAAS caches per-peer, specifically about how a Core WAE allocates storage to each Edge? The WAE datasheets indicate that a 7341 has 4 X 300 GB HDDs in RAID 5. How much of that is actually available for DRE and CIFS caches and where do I go to check that ("show statistics dre peer" seems to be the likely candidate, but that's DRE and not CIFS, and it doesn't show total cache available for all peers.) Is each peer's cache flushed purely on age, or can I specify it to flush the least frequently accessed data? (For example, if there's a big 'file' stored in the DRE cache that gets hit every day, but has been there for a long time, will it get flushed and force a full new transfer?)
Is the best way to see the 'most active' peer by doing show stat dre peer and look for the peer with the 'youngest' Cache age?
Are there per-peer limits based on the type of WAE? (e.g. will a 300Gb WAE-612 support 60 peers, and if so does it carve out 60 equal 5Gb partitions (with 2.5Gb for DRE and 2.5Gb for CIFS) or is there other magic involved?) How does making it do both Core and Edge affect this?
Any other information on peers and/or partitioning (especially monitoring/reporting) would be greatly appreciated.
