CE590 http Saving

I installed Cisco Content Engine 590 on ISP network

How can I test the performance of the CE590 ??

What is the accepted saving percentage ?

My router show my the following statistics :

I think, the caching performance is not good

What do you suggest ??

Re: CE590 http Saving

Mohamed,

It's hard to say what an acceptable number should be in this senario, but in general I would say something in the 30-40% savings range is normal. This is dependant on the configuration say if you're bypassing certain clients, servers, etc..

In your senario, you should probably take a look at the "show bypass" data and get a sense of why you have misses and bypasses. In many instances, people who do not have PTR records of their CE ip address in their DNS network see problems simply due to the fact that external websites very often do reverse lookups and this can cause alot of bypass instances.

Re: CE590 http Saving

Mohamed,

This is a classic case of the nimda virus of something of that nature. You will want to put in the following filters and then do a show rules to see if you are getting hits on them. I would imagine you will definately see hits based on the "error transparency" number listed in your last reply.

Rules:

rule block url-regex .*/default\.ida

rule block url-regex .*/root.exe

rule block url-regex .*\cmd.exe

rule block url-regex ^http://.*www\.worm\.com/default\.ida$

rule block url-regex ^http://.*/default\.ida$

rule no-cache url-regex .*cgi-bin.*

rule no-cache url-regex .*aw-cgi.*

Re: CE590 http Saving

Pete,

why do you think there is a nimda virus ??

how can I get the no. of hits on these applied rules ? show rule all command didnot show any hits !!!!!!

after 30 min. from applying the rules, I got the below output :

Re: CE590 http Saving

Sorry about the confusion on the exact command.

Please take a look at "show stat rule all"

It should look something like this:

---------------------show stat rule all---------------------

rule block domain www.test.com

Rule hit count = 0

rule block domain www.test.com

Rule hit count = 0

Re: CE590 http Saving

Mohamed,

So now it appears that you are blocking the nimda virus and maybe some others that are affecting your CE (this is good that you are now blocking them)

I see that the savings has increased (this is good too). I would now verify in your network that you are virus free. Also, you can do a "clear cache" on the CE to clean up the disk and start off fresh now that you are blocking the viruses.

Re: CE590 http Saving

Mohamed,

The savings went down now because alot of the information has to be received from the web to the CE now that it has nothing cached. In effect, once it is up for a while, you should see the savings increase and then stabilize

Re: CE590 http Saving

Pete,

Do you still recommend to upgrade the CE 590 with ACNS 4.2.x ?

Bronze

Re: CE590 http Saving

I would highly recommend you upgrade. There is no other way to put it. ACNS 4.2 is definately the way to go especially when you are runnning a 590 that is a powerful CE.

Re: CE590 http Saving

I will upgrade to ACNS ver. 4.2.3

After upgrading, Does the CE 590 keep its old configuration ?

OR Should I make some changes in the configuration with the new ACNS 4.2.3 ??

Re: CE590 http Saving

Thanks for your help

The CE590 saving performance is 30% : 40%

i think this is a good performance

I have a question regarding the CE590

If the internet link is down, and the client open its browser

Should he get the web site from the CE ( browse the cached site ) while the internet link is down ?

Thanks

Re: CE590 http Saving

Pete,

My setup is :

PIX firewall connected between the internal network and the inernet.

All clients & Servers are on the inside network and there are three ISA proxy servers (insdie of the PIX ) which all clients browseres them it for http internet connection.

CE 590 & main router (3661) connectedd the outside of the PIX

Main router 3661 FastEther connected to ouside network of the PIX ( CE 590 on this network also ), and 3661 Serial is connetced to internet.

CE 590 ip address is public address

PIX is doing NAT translation from internal private addresses ( 10.x.x.x ) to public addresses

PTR record with content.uruklink.net to public ip address of the CE590

My CE configuration is :

-----------------------------------

hostname content

!

!

!

!

ip domain-name uruklink.net

!

!

!

!

interface FastEthernet 0/0

ip address 62.32.60.250 255.255.255.0

exit

interface FastEthernet 0/1

shutdown

exit

!

ip default-gateway 62.32.60.254

!

ip name-server 62.32.60.1

!

!

!

!

!

!

!

!

wccp router-list 1 62.32.60.254

wccp web-cache router-list-num 1

wccp version 2

!

!

In the Router configuration :

---------------------------------------

ip wccp web-cache

ip cef

and in the Fastethernet connect to PIX outside and CE 590

ip route-cache same-interface

and in the Serial connect to internet

ip wccp web-cache redirect out

Do I have anything missing or wrong in my CE and router configuration ?

Thanks

Re: CE590 http Saving

I should also add to my other comments that you would certainly be better off running 4.1.2 software on the CE as this is much cleaner code with respect to WCCP. I would have to say that this is critical !!
