The TFO accelerator is overloaded (connection limit) and MAPI problems

Hi All!

Problem description:

When MAPI acceleration (exchange/outlook) is Active in our WAAS environment, the remote site users randomly lose connection to the Exchange server (on hub site), if I disable the MAPI acceleration everything works ok.  so right now we are running with MAPI accelearation Disabled

I can see that we often get max_conn_reject The TFO accelerator is overloaded (connection limit), we haven't done any adjustments to the default configuration. 

The environment is one Hubsite with two remote sites.

[Hub Site] 34mbit

HW=OE674

SW=4.1.5

inline

Enterprise Lic

[Remote Site1] 4 mbit

HW=OE474

SW=4.1.5

inline

Enterprise Lic

[Remote Site2] 4mbit

HW=OE474

SW=4.1.5

inline

Enterprise Lic

So the question is how to solve this?!

Re: The TFO accelerator is overloaded (connection limit) and MAP

I had a feeling that you might have alot of computer remotely.

One of the main factors in sizing a WAAS soluiton is to keep in mind the number of TCP connections that a single WAE can optimize.

We limit the device on optimized TCP connections.After you hit the limit the device will go into the overload state that you mentioned.

274 - 200 connections

474 - 400 connections.

Typically from a sizing a single workstation would be sized from 7-10 TCP connections.

The 2nd factor in sizing is bandwidth - WAAS doesn't limit bandwidth but this is recommended for the CPU throughput.

274 - 2 Megs

474 - 4 Megs

The 3rd factor is redundancy,. HA, etc.

Thanks,

Eric
