WAAS: Using 4port HWIC module on a router

Hello -

I was wondering if there are any performance issues with using a 4-port HCWIC ethernet module on a WAN router for connecting the WAAS device rather than trunking down to your switch? We have this deployed today in all of our remote sites using 2 WAN routers for redundancy along with multicast for the WCCP registrations. We do sometimes get dropped packets when you do a show int sum on the WAAS connected interfaces, but it's not incrementing rapidly.

Thanks,

John

Hi Jhon,

It is not a problem unless you do optimization in WAAS devices for the traffic,check out the below links on cisco WAAS optimiazation hope that helps out your query!!

Re: WAAS: Using 4port HWIC module on a router

Of course I'm doing optimization on the WAAS that's all the whole point of having WAAS. I don't think you understand my question; you only posted marketing information which I do not need. My question was, are there any performance issue with using the 4-port hwic module on an ISR router?

Re: WAAS: Using 4port HWIC module on a router

I am sorry jhon i thought in different way it wont create a performance issue withh 4 port HWIC module on router.for more details check out th below link on 4 port and 9 ports Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs.

Hope that clear your query !!
