I would like to be able to test the difference for when WAAS is Optimizing and when it is not. I have 2 inline WAE's. I am specifically interested in measuring the impact of WAAS on RDP between the 2 sites with the WAE's. So, the first thing I did was de-Activate both WAE's. When I use the GUI to the Central Manager, it indicates that nothing is being reported by the Connection Statistics. However, when I connect to the WAE's themselves and "show tfo conn summ", I see that the WAE's are still optimizing traffic between them. Next, I tried going to the Device Group Policy Definitions and changing the Remote-Anything policy to Passthru, but the connections are still being optimized. Finally, I tried using the GUI to reload the WAE's, but that did not actually Reload them :-(
Any ideas on how to turn WAAS optimization on and off for WAE's in inline mode? Thanks!
