NPM and Cisco WAAS

Hey All,

Was wondering if Cisco's WAAS is/could be on the roadmap for being supported by Solarwinds??

Have roughly 15 of these devices in our network and would love to have the pretty stats in solarwinds for reporting and such.

Thanks

Michael

What specific items would be valuable for you to see within Orion on the WAAS

Re: NPM and Cisco WAAS

That is a very good question...

I will chat to the senior network engineers and get more details on what they are after...

From what i understand NetQoS is currently one of the only products to retrieve the data correctly and accurately (don't quote me on this though)

From my understanding they are after Graphs displaying the percentage of accelerated traffic, what's been saved by using WAAS, and the breakdown of the traffic (similar to Netflow)

These type of reports are built into the Central Manager in the WAAS deployment.

4.1.1b and higher will give you better reporting.

Elliott,

Thanks for the response. At the moment we are retrieving our reporting from the Central Manager however my boss would like to have everything within Solarwinds and Automated reporting / alerting from there, this would also allow the collection of all WAAS Statistics by solarwinds as well and could add another graph to the Node Details page.

Not sure if it will ever be possible but can always hope Smiley Happy

Thanks

Michael

I'm going to bump this.  We are doing a WAAS proff of concept and CA brough in NetQoS at the same time.  It looks like they can pull the stats directly into their product and that the WAE's can send the flow data to their collectors.  It might be something for SW to look into.

I second this motion. My boss and co-workers would love to see flow data in Orion.

I'd also use this feature on a daily basis. The stats I'd be most interested in would be Compression/Acceleration, active connection counts, WAAS Alarms and being able to see the weird WAAS interfaces like InlinePort 1/1/lan.

Gotcha, I met with Eric today and got his input and passed it on to Chris, the NTA PM.  Regarding NPM for WAAS what stuff could you or do you pull via UnDP today?
