I'm working with WAAS and I found some curious things:
1) Can I export the SSL certificates of the CM? I want to optimize the traffic to the CM from a remote location and use WAAS for this, but I couldn't found where or how to export the CM certificate to configure SSL Acceleration in the central WAE. Is this possible?
2) I configure some reports to generate daily and I found some traffic that is not being accelerated, I'm attaching and example:
Application Original Optimized Pass- Redu Effective Reduc Effect
Remote-Desktop 11.334 MB 11.922 MB 0 Bytes 0.0 1.0 X 0.0 1.0 X
Replication 3.228 MB 4.032MB 0 Bytes 0.0 1.0 X 0.0 1.0 X
OtherTraffic 4.996 MB 7.552 MB 1.192 MB 0.0 1.0 X 0.0 1.0 X
Is there some operational reason to this happen?, why I can't accelerate RDP for example? this repeats across all my WAEs statistics.
3) Where I can found information about the fields in the reports generated and their meaning? For example, what are Other Traffic components?
Thanks for your help,
About question #2: I was reading about and I found that in RDP and Replication, for example, WAAS only apply TFO (not LZ or DRE) for some services. What can I do to make this more efficient?, can I apply LZ/DRE to this kind of connections?, is this possible?
Ans: for RDP and replication, you can certainly change the default p[olicy but we do not recommend to do it as that is the most efficient we found during our initial testing. Changing the default policy from TFO and adding LZ/DRE may cause the performance otherwise. So, in other words, yes you can do it and try but I will not suggest it.
In question #3, I don't want to modify the classify of applications. I just want to learn about the meaning of the charts and fields in the WAAS reports. Is there a site (another different from de Users Guide) where I can find information about this?
Ans: Well, you may find other sites if you "google" around on web but to get more precise meaning of terms and interpretation, you probably want to stick with Cisco Manuals.
