Hi All,

We currently have WAAS deployed in a production network and we are trying to understand the traffic reporting on the WAAS Central Manager.

So when we look at the traffic summary report it shows original traffic over the last hour and optimised traffic over the last hour, does the original traffic mean the amount traffic that has arrived at the WAAS device? and the optimised traffic is what has left the WAAS device? How do i know what percentage was cached/compressed/accelerated?

Also i exported this from a WAE device and im trying to interpret original in and optimised out? can somebody clarify this?

I believe that the 'original traffic' indicates the amount of data that would have been sent/needed had the WAAS no been in place.  The 'optimised traffic' is the actual amount of data that was sent.  The difference in the two numbers is the savings that in bandwidth that the WAAS gave you.
