looks like over Christmas our core WAE was not doing any accelerating so remote WAEs have pages of "PT no peer" messages

see below for example is the WAE and is a server at the core N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer N/A PT No Peer

PT No Peer means that the WAE doesn't see TCP autodiscovery options coming from another WAE at the other end of the link.

Either interception was changed or the Core WAEs are not actively acting on or accelerating traffic they are intercepting. If you are using WCCP, do the WAEs show up as clients to the routers (sh ip wccp) and do the WAEs show that traffic is being forwarded (sh wccp router/gre). Do you see TFO Overload messages in the CM?

Hope that gives you some places to start looking at.

AS I said for some reason the Core WAE had stopped accelerating, nothing in the graphs, and when I did a "sh wccp flows tcp" command and everything was 0, so reloaded the core WAE and it started working. My question was how do I flush the connection statistics of all the "PT no peer" entries when I had the problem? I still see them 24 hours after I corrected the problem

The connections may be long lived CIFS connections and have not re-established since you restarted the cores. Try having the users/adminstrators reset the connections (reload the workstations or reset via server manager) and see if they come back as optimized. If the connection is established before WAAS starts optimizing, then it will pass the connection through until the next 3 way handshake.
