ACE Resource Allocation Question

Unanswered Question
Jan 15th, 2010

We've been having some issues with dropped connections to our VIPs for our 3 contexts (dev, qa, prod).  If I do a show resource usage on those contexts there are many denied packets for bandwidth.

Here are the resource allocations for the 1gb license:

resource-class DEV_RC
  limit-resource all minimum 20.00 maximum equal-to-min
resource-class PROD_RC
  limit-resource all minimum 30.00 maximum unlimited
resource-class QA_RC
  limit-resource all minimum 30.00 maximum equal-to-min

Here are the resource usages:

QA

  bandwidth                  4877   97749112   40265318  125000000 1515246729
    throughput               4215     729100   40265318          0   89472411
    mgmt-traffic rate         662      65824          0  125000000          0

DEV
  bandwidth                   831  112580766   26843546  125000000 3015575902
    throughput                831      30112   26843546          0  237188842
    mgmt-traffic rate           0          0          0  125000000          0

PROD

  bandwidth               1794436  124788046   40265318  151843546   23033718
    throughput            1793795   12323816   40265318   26843546   12155380
    mgmt-traffic rate         641       2992          0  125000000          0

What adjustments if any can be made to reduce the denied packets ?  Thanks in advance.

  Hi,

The Denied counter for throughput will mean the number of times traffic was denied after throughput resource limit was reached.

For context DEV_RC, QA_RC you can try changing maximum to unlimited. For context PROD_RC, even though maximum is set to
unlimited , the Denied counter is incremented.

As next steps you might want to increase throughput license for ACE to handle more traffic.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,
Rahul
