Maximum session count for Optimization on WAAS

Hi all, i've currently two different types of hw in use.

WAE612 an NM-WAE502.

now i want to know the maximum session count for a WAE 512.

On 502 we have a maximum of 500 sessions

On 612 we have a maximum of 6000 sessiones.

could you give me the maximum session count on WAE512?

thx in advance

Re: Maximum session count for Optimization on WAAS

Optimized TCP connection capacity for a 512 (1GB) is 750 and for a 512 (2GB) is 1500.

The figure you quote for the 612 is for the 4GB model. With 2GB it is 2000.

Re: Maximum session count for Optimization on WAAS

PT traffic does not count against your max optimized session count.

You can also use the redirect-list functionality for WCCP which is basically an extended ACL to deny traffic from being redirected.

Using either method, I usually exclude all real time/management traffic: telnet, ssh, snmp, snmp traps, bgp, etc. You can do your denies by source/dest IP or Port.

Hope that helps,

Dan

Re: Maximum session count for Optimization on WAAS

Hmm, so i think it's the best to replace the NM due a WAE512.

however, i've currently the problem, that the TFO session count reaches the maximum a few times per day.

Now the question is:

What is the best way to avoid a TFO session exceed?

Is it O.K. to modify the policy. The Idea is to pass through traffic, which has only a poor benefit of WAAS (such as SAP).

The question here is: Has a pass through on the policy any impact to the TFO counter?

The second idea is to redirect only definded traffic via WCCP? Is there a way to do it in this way?

thanks for your help
