I have a simple WAAS lab set up with a 7341 as the Core datacenter WAAS and an NM-WAE module in a 3845 as the remote WAAS. The two are connected via a dual-T1 multilink. I've attached a Visio showing the set up and WCCP config of the devices and routers.
On PC-A I login in to Server-A which is a Microsoft 2003 server. When I copy a file from the server to the PC, using the GUI for the NM-WAE, when I copy a file from the server to the PC, I see the CifsAO Cache increase by the size of the file. When I copy the same file again it is much faster proving the file was copied from the NW-WAE cache instead of the server.
But when I copy a file from the PC to the server, the CifsAO Cache on the 7341 stays at 0, but a second copy of the same file from the PC to the server is much faster, which I assume means it was delivered to the server from the 7341.
Shouldn't I see the 7341 CifsAO cache counter reflect the first copy from the PC to the server? Is DRE in play here for some reason instead of the CifsAO cache?
