WAAS: Using 4port HWIC module on a router

Unanswered Question
Jan 15th, 2010

Hello -

I was wondering if there are any performance issues with using a 4-port HCWIC ethernet module on a WAN router for connecting the WAAS device rather than trunking down to your switch? We have this deployed today in all of our remote sites using 2 WAN routers for redundancy along with multicast for the WCCP registrations. We do sometimes get dropped packets when you do a show int sum on the WAAS connected interfaces, but it's not incrementing rapidly.



I have this problem too.

Hi Jhon,

It is not a problem unless you do optimization in WAAS devices for the traffic,check out the below links on cisco WAAS optimiazation hope that helps out your query!!



If helpful do rate the valuable post.

Of course I'm doing optimization on the WAAS that's all the whole point of having WAAS. I don't think you understand my question; you only posted marketing information which I do not need. My question was, are there any performance issue with using the 4-port hwic module on an ISR router?

I am sorry jhon i thought in different way it wont create a performance issue withh 4 port HWIC module on router.for more details check out th below link on 4 port and 9 ports Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs.

Hope that clear your query !!
