We are testing an 574 with inlinecard togeter with ASA version 8.
Here is the flow "Router <-> WAE <-> ASA <-> Switch" is this right or should we have it between the switch and the ASA?
We have enabled inspect WAAS in the ASA, anything else that need to configure in the ASA or WAE?
The issue we have is if we are using win file copy, in one direction it is cache and in one not.
No interface error's inte WAE.
I understand that WAE is inline before the next hop router.
Can you check if you're seeing this on ASA for connections both ways:
%ASA-6-428001: WAAS confirmed from in_interface:src_ip_addr/src_port to out_interface:dest_ip_addr/dest_port, inspection services bypassed on this connection.
The WAAS is after the WAN router and before "outside" the ASA .
I can see in the syslog %ASA-6-428001: WAAS confirmed from in_interface:src_ip_addr/src_port to out_interface:dest_ip_addr/dest_port, inspection services bypassed, but I dont see any UOW flags when I am runing sh conn det
Could this be becouse the WAE is not on the "inside" of the ASA?
Very possible, I don't have a lab setup to test this.
Anything else in logs on the ASA during transfer? How about disbaling randomization of ISN?
BTW since you're talking about cache'ing - are we talking about ACNS or WAAS? on ACNS there's HTTP stats about misses etc.
It's really a long shot but:
basically - define a flow via access-list or particular port.
Apply the access-list or port in class-map
Apply the class-map in global policy
set connection random dis
That's it ... but IMHO it might not be related.
How exactly are you checking that there is no cacheing ?
I will wait with disable the ISN and move the WAE to the inside of the firewall.
LAN admin is testing with windows file copy, the second time he copy an file it should be cached in the WAE.
Download on remote CIFS is ok, but the upload on the same remote CIFS is not cache the second time.
Do you have connection stats for this particular connection?
Why not do WCCP instead of inline or is the router a non-cisco device.
The router is an Cisco device, but it is not ours and enable WCCP is not that easy for the provider.
That is why we use inline.
I have done any sh stats on the particular connection.
I will move the WAE and get if it dosen't work i will back.
Thank you Jan
The CIFS cache is only effective on the download at the client location. If the same client uploaded a previoulsy downloaded file you will not see "lan" like performance on this upload since there is no CIFS cache on the server side WAE for this scenario. However, you will be taking full advantage of the DRE cache on both client and server side WAEs. Thus, I would expect the performance of the upload to be better than without WAAS, but not as good as a download being served from the client WAE CIFS cache.
So, as long as the connection is showing as T,C,D,L on both WAEs (show stat conn | inc
