If the ACE is configured to rate limit the traffic to a given real server to a certain bandwidth, what happens to the traffic that exceeds the specified limit ? Does the ACE drop this traffic in all cases as the documentation says ? Or can we configure the ACE to bypass this traffic either without any load balancing or to a backup server ?
Hi Gillies, Thanks for the response. Is there a possibility to bypass or send to backup only the amount of traffic that exceeds the set rate limit. What We need is the ACE to send only 155Mbps of total web traffic to a caching server, and to bridge or route the traffic exceeding that limit. This does sounds like a bit of a impossible task to handle, but thought I should verify it with you guys first
That sounds good, When there is excess traffic, all the new connections would be sent to the serverfarm representing the DG. Now when the traffic level of the cache due to the existing connections decrease below acceptable levels, the ACE will again bring it in to rotation.
Cool, One question though. What happens if there are two caching servers, and we want to implement the same to both the servers. I'm thinking the net effect would be similar. But would there be any caveats ?
Why do you need native HA: The native HA feature allows two Cisco DCNM
appliances to run as active and standby applications, with their
embedded databases synchronized in real time. Therefore, when the active
DCNM is not functioning, the standby DCNM will...

Is it supported or NOT supported? It's a frequently asked question.
Before APIC, release 2.3(1f), transit routing was not supported within a
