Unanswered Question

I wonder if the capacity of wae exceed, what happen on wae?

I think, the wae seems to like bypass that traffic. so bypassed traffic didn't accelerator.

if there is wae in the middle between two end-to end wae, the wae in middle accelerate above those bypassed traffic?

if you know, Please let me know.

I have this problem too.

If the connection limit on the WAE is exceeded it will enter the TFO overload status and all subsequent TCP sessions will be placed in Pass Through (e.g. not attempted to be optimized).

When the WAE exits this condition by TCP connections closing on the end client or server then new TCP connections will be flagged for optimization.

While the 1st WAE is in the TFO overload condition if you had an intermediate WAE that was not in TFO overload it would flag the SYN packet for optimization per the normal TFO auto discovery process and if the server side or 3rd WAE was not in overload then this traffic could be optimized between WAE 2 and 3.

Hope this helps,
