We're in the middle of the benchmark testing an edge site for the cifs traffic. The edge site has a 512wae and the core site has the 7326wae. We have acertained that the cifs traffic is getting accelerated and the numbers for reading files seem to be OK.. However, the numbers for writing files are too high. How would we go about troubleshooting an issue like that?

If it's Excel, let's take a look at a packet capture. Excel has some less-than-ideal oplock behavior that can cause cache invalidation.
