We’re currently using Riverbed Wan optimizers.We are not using the appropriate AMD decode yet.
I have questions
1 – WAN Visibility mode
There are 3 different transparency modes than we can choose
in the riverbed.
-Correct addressing (default): Wan sees only WOC’s IPs /ports
-Full transparency : Wan sees server’s and workstation’s IPs/ports, although
the traffic on the wan side is a communication between the wan optimizers.
-Port transparency : Wan sees WOC IP’s but the real server’s port is see
Are these 3 modes supported by the AMD (12.4+)?
Does it leads to the same results in the DMI?
2 – Network performance measurement
We observe really low Client RTT time for the optimized
sites, I assume the wan optimizer finishes the tcp handshake even before the
SYN/ACK reaches the workstation. I really don't know what happens within the wan connection.
Can the riverbed decode guess the real client RTT regardless
of the visibility mode?
Can we see the real RTT in the same report as sites without
In case it can help: answer from the support (Thanks Adam)
|1) We are supporting all mentioned|
2) Yes. Real RTT will be reported.
Please remember that support for newest Riverbeds
is only in our new AMD HS (High Speed).
