ACE 4710 Web Optimization Licnesing

I currently have a 4710 running the 1Gbps package. We are utilizing Application Acceleration and are comg very close to hitting our 10,000 Web Optimization connection limit. I am trying to find out how to upgrade that.

I see in our license usage an option of ACE-AP-OPT-UP1-K9 but can find no information on this part number. Does anyone know if this is even available and what it brings you connection limit to?

Re: ACE 4710 Web Optimization Licnesing

Unfortunately, ACE-AP-OPT-LIC-K9 is not available on ACE4710 and

ACE 4710 cannot handle more than 10,000 concurrent connections..

When you use the ACE to perform a specific set of application

acceleration and optimization functions, and the ACE reaches the

maximum of 10,000 concurrent connections, the appliance stops

accepting any additional concurrent connections until the count

drops below 10,000.

Re: ACE 4710 Web Optimization Licnesing

Hi Yuji,

A couple of things to add:

Not sure what you mean by: "Unfortunately, ACE-AP-OPT-LIC-K9 is not available on ACE4710", ACE-AP-OPT-LIC-K9 is the license that increases optimized current conns # from 50 (default) to 10,000 (maximum).

Also the behavior with the default is that when 50 current conns are reached the ACE will just drop conn # 51 and client will get page cannot be displayed but when ACE has installed ACE-AP-OPT-LIC-K9 and 10,000 current conns are reached the ACE still will pass the traffic to backend server but this new connection and any other will remain non-optimized until the resource utilization drops down.

Hi Pablo

I'm sorry I mistook to copy and paste the license name.

Actual license name was ACE-AP-OPT-UP1-K9, not ACE-AP-OPT-LIC-K9.
