actually this is not very appropriate to answer this in this forum which is dedicated to cisco product.

but we used that kind of set up before and yes i will affect the visibility as riverbed replace the packet ip. for RIOS 5 you can set up to be transparent mode to overcome this issue.

Thank you for the information. Do you the right forum to discuss on this type of solution?

Yes, I'm aware of RIOS5 capability but there are also some caveats which was addressed by Riverbed and one of them is the possibility of a routing loop which can't be detected due to the transparency setup.
