I recently went through the upgrade process with a customer to move their NAMs to 4.2 and integrate WAAS 4.0.15 with the NAMs via the flow agent. We followed the NAM integration guide and setup some reporting in the NAM for collecting information from the WAAS flow agents on bandwidth and response time. However, at this point, the information that we seem to be getting is limited. I am finding the reports in the WAAS GUI itself to be more valuable at this time, however, I have heard from several engineers since this integration has been available that NAM and WAAS are a good fit. Does anyone have any specific reports that they can point me towards in the NAM? Right now I have setup some Application optimization specific reports in the WAAS CM for HTTP and CIFS. What I would like to do is use the NAM to validate those reports and provide some upper management level visibility into specific flows to specific servers and how effective WAAS has been in optimizing that traffic. This customer is about to deploy WAAS worldwide and having some more detailed reporting capability would be very helpful.
Does anyone on the list have any good experience with NAM 4.2 and WAAS that they can share and some how to's on what reports they are finding the most valuable to their senior managers and IT staff? Thanks
