Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has
established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your
business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around
the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or
significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by
inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time
resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most
business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources
during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product
capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your
business operations.

The WAE-512 and WAE-612 are configured for AC-input power and have a single
AC-input power supply.
The WAE appliance has an integrated dual-port Ethernet controller, which
supports 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-TX Ethernet using RJ-45
receptacles. Both Ethernet ports support autodetect speed mode and full-duplex
operation, which enable simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the
Ethernet LAN.
WAE-512 and 612 models that are operating with ACNS software support an
MPEG A/V decoder adapter. This adapter is user-replaceable and is installed in
PCI-X slot 1 on the back panel.

WAAS Software Description
With WAAS software installed, the WAE appliance functions as either a WAAS
Central Manager or a WAAS Application Acceleration Engine. The WAAS
Central Manager provides a graphical user interface to monitor and configure all
Acceleration Engines. The WAAS Acceleration Engine is deployed in remote
branch offices and in the data center to accelerate TCP applications that access
data across the network.
The Application Acceleration Engine functionality operates at different levels
based on the software licenses purchased. WAAS 4.x, software offers the WAAS
Transport License or the WAAS Enterprise License options.
Cisco WAAS software helps enterprises meet the following objectives:
•
Provide branch office employees with LAN-like access to information and
applications across a geographically distributed network.

– Slow delivery of frames (high network latency)
– Higher rates of packet loss (low reliability)
ACNS Software Description
With ACNS software installed, the WAE appliance functions as a Content
Distribution Manager, Content Engine, or Content Router. The Content
Distribution Manager provides a graphical user interface to manage registered
Content Engines and Content Routers. The ACNS solution addresses the need to
distribute and receive high-bandwidth, media-rich content across the Internet or
an intranet without performance losses or content-delivery delays.
ACNS software offers the following content-based services:
•
Content caching and hosting
•
Proxy services
•
Content replication
•
Video streaming
In Content Engine mode, the WAE operates either as a component of an ACNS
network or as a standalone content-caching device and is generally positioned on
the WAN edge between your enterprise network and the Internet.
Note
The WAE-612 supports device-mode configuration and can be configured with
ACNS 5.x software to operate as a Content Engine, a Content Router, a Content
Distribution Manager, or an IP/TV Program Manager. The WAE-512 operates as
a Content Engine only.

Form and Function
Your appliance supports one optional 4-port Ethernet inline network adapter. The
inline network adapter is a full-height, three-quarter-length PCI-X network
interface card that contains four independent Gigabit Ethernet ports. (See
Figure 1-11.)

Inline Network Adapter
159701
Figure 1-11
The Cisco WAE inline network adapter provides inline traffic interception
capability for your appliance. When your appliance is configured for inline
interception mode, you can set attributes to control which interfaces are to be used
over which VLANs. By default, the adapter operates on all inline-capable
interfaces and VLANs. You can configure the inline redirection feature using the
WAAS 4.0.7 CLI or the WAAS 4.0.7 Central Manager GUI.
The WAAS software defines two new interface types: A group interface that
represents an inline pair grouping and a port interface that represents the
individual port. These interfaces are referred to as inlineGroup and inlinePort,
respectively.
InlineGroup interfaces are numbered using the format slot/group. The slot number
is the slot in which the adapter is inserted. (In the WAE 500 series and 600 series
appliances, the adapter must be installed in slot 1 only.) The group number is
either 0 or 1 (each adapter has 2 group pairs). The group number is displayed on
the adapter label.
InlinePort interfaces are numbered slot/group/lan or slot/group/wan. The last
attribute is the LAN or WAN designator.
The inline network adapter also includes an onboard programmable Watch Dog
Timer (WDT) controller. You can set the time to wait after a failure event, such as
a power outage or a kernel crash, before the unit begins to operate in mechanical
bypass mode. In mechanical bypass mode, traffic is bridged between the LAN and
WAN ports of each group. Mechanical bypass mode prevents the WAE from

becoming a single point of failure and allows traffic to continue to flow between
the router and the client while it passes through an unresponsive WAE without
being processed.

Inline Network Adapter Cabling Requirements
Your inline network adapter ships with two types of cables: crossover and
straight-through. When you connect the WAE inline network adapter, proper
cabling depends on the link speed (Gigabit Ethernet or Fast Ethernet) and the
types of devices (DCE or DTE) being connected.
Note
You must retain the same link speed from one end of the connection to the other
end. Inline adapter interfaces are able to autonegotiate link speeds. If any of your
connecting interfaces are configured for Fast Ethernet (whether on a switch or a
router), your WAE inline adapter uses Fast Ethernet. If any of your connecting
interfaces are configured for Gigabit Ethernet, your WAE inline adapter uses
Gigabit Ethernet. Speed and duplex settings are port-specific, so two inline ports
can negotiate different speeds independently.
If you are connecting a WAE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit
Ethernet, you can use either straight-through cables, crossover cables, or any
combination of the two cable types, regardless of the type of device. However, for
consistency, we recommend that you use straight-through cables for all Gigabit
Ethernet connections.
Table 1-8 shows the cable requirements for WAE and non-WAE connections when
you are using Gigabit Ethernet end to end.

Some switches support automatic medium-dependent interface crossover
(MDIX). You can configure MDIX by using the mdix auto global configuration
switch command. If your switch supports MDIX, you do not need to follow these
cabling rules because MDIX automatically adjusts transmit and receive pairs
when an incorrect cable type (crossover or straight-through) is installed on a
10/100 Fast Ethernet port. However, when you configure MDIX, you must also
configure the port to use autosense (not manual selection of speed/duplex).
Caution
If you are connecting to Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides
of the WAE inline appliance, you must consider the types of devices that are being
connected, and you must use the correct cables. You must follow these cabling
instructions for the inline network adapter to work properly. (See Table 1-9. For
illustrations and examples, see the “Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples
for Fast Ethernet Connections” section on page 1-20.)

OL-9137-02
Chapter 1
Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine
Hardware Features
To connect the inline network adapter using the correct cables for Fast Ethernet
connections, follow these steps:
Step 1
Determine which type of cable you would use for a direct connection between
your two end devices (without a WAE inline network appliance connected
between them) by using the following standard cabling rules:
•
When you are directly connecting two network devices that are similar, such
as two switches, use a crossover cable.
•
When you are directly connecting two network devices that are different, such
as a switch and router, use a straight-through cable.
Note
Because the inline network adapter has an internal crossover connection
that becomes active when the InlineGroup interface is placed in
mechanical bypass mode, you must figure out which cable you would use
to connect the two network devices directly, and then you must install the
other cable type (on one side, usually the WAN side of the inline
appliance) instead.
Table 1-9 shows the cable requirements for WAE and non-WAE connections when
you are using Fast Ethernet end to end.

Chapter 1
Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine
Hardware Features
Step 2
Connect Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE
inline appliance by using the following cable types:
•
On the LAN side of the connection, use a straight-through cable between the
WAE inline appliance and the network device.
•
On the WAN side of the connection, use the cable that is different from the
cable that you would use to connect the two network devices directly (as
determined in Step 1).
For example, if you are connecting a router and a switch (two different
devices) through the WAE inline appliance, use a straight-through cable on
the LAN side of the connection and use a crossover cable on the WAN side
of the connection. (If you were connecting the two different devices directly,
you would use a straight-through cable, so use the crossover cable instead.)
If you are connecting two switches (or two similar devices), use
straight-through cables on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE
inline appliance.
Figure 1-13 through Figure 1-15 show the cables to use for the WAE LAN
and WAN connections between Fast Ethernet ports.
Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections
WAE appliances can be installed physically between two network devices (such
as the branch office router and branch office LAN switch) by connecting the WAE
inline network adapter ports to the network devices using the proper cables.
If you are connecting a WAE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit
Ethernet, you can use either straight-through cables, crossover cables, or any
combination of the two cable types, regardless of the type of device. This section
shows cabling examples for Fast Ethernet connections only, because Fast Ethernet
has specific cabling requirements.
The inline network adapter has four ports that are divided into two inline groups
(see the “Ports and LED Indicators” section on page 1-16). The WAE can be
physically placed inline between two distinct network paths, creating redundant
WAN links. (See Figure 1-13.)
Cisco Wide Area Application Engine 512 and 612 Hardware Installation Guide

OL-9137-02
Chapter 1
Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine
Hardware Features
Two WAEs with inline network adapters can also be installed back-to-back in a
serial fashion between two network devices for failover purposes. In this type of
serial cluster configuration, if one WAE fails or becomes overloaded, the other
WAE can provide optimization. (See Figure 1-14.)
Note
Figure 1-13
When you connect two WAE inline appliances to each other in serial fashion,
always use a crossover cable between the two WAEs. (See Figure 1-15.)

Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national
laws and regulations. Statement 1040
To remove a device from your network, power it down, disconnect the power
cords and network cables, and physically remove the chassis from the rack.
The device is in constant communication with the router on your network. When
the router notices that the device is no longer responding to it, the router stops
sending requests to the device. This is transparent to users. If other devices are
attached to the router, the router continues sending requests to the other devices.
When you remove a device, the pages that were cached on that device are no
longer available to the router or other devices, and you might see an increase in
outgoing web traffic that might have otherwise been fulfilled by the device that
you are removing. However, after a time, the router and other devices redistribute
the load of web traffic.
If you remove the last device from your network, you can also disable device
support on the router. However, this is not necessary; having device support
enabled when there are no devices attached has no effect on the router’s
performance.
To replace a device, remove it from the network, and then install a new device.
Configure it using the same configuration parameters (IP address, and so forth)
that you used for the removed device.

Installing DIMMs
Adding memory to your device is an easy way to make your system software run
faster. You can increase the amount of memory in your device by installing
additional dual-inline memory modules (DIMMs).
When you install additional memory, note the following information:
•
Review the memory specifications for your WAE model in the “Appliance
Specifications” section on page A-1.
•
The amount of usable memory will be reduced depending on the system
configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system
resources. The BIOS displays the total amount of installed memory and the
amount of configured memory.
•
You must use DIMMs (MEM-WAE-1GB=) purchased from Cisco only.

Installing DIMMs
•
Memory modules are installed on the system board in the DIMM connectors
shown in Figure 4-4. Devices with a single DIMM should have the module
installed in DIMM connector 1. Install the next module in DIMM
connector 3. The third and fourth DIMMs must be installed as a pair in
DIMM connectors 2 and 4.
•
When you install or remove DIMMs, the WAE appliance automatically
detects the new DIMM configuration and no save in the BIOS is required.

Insert the DIMM into the connector by aligning the DIMM edges with the
slots at each end of the DIMM connector. Firmly press the DIMM straight
down into the connector by applying pressure on both ends of the DIMM
simultaneously. Be sure that the retaining clips snap into the locked position
when the DIMM is firmly seated in the connector.
c.
If a gap exists between the DIMM and the retaining clips, the DIMM has not
been properly installed. In this case, open the retaining clips and remove the
DIMM, and then reinsert the DIMM.
If you have other options to install, do so now; otherwise, go to the “Completing
the Installation” section on page 4-15.
Working with Hard Disk Drives
This section describes how to install a hard disk drive in the Wide Area
Application Engine (WAE). The WAE-512 requires simple-swap Serial Advanced
Technology Attachment II (SATA) hard disk drives, and the WAE-612 accepts
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drives or hot-swap SATA hard disk drives.
Consider the following information when installing a hard disk drive:
•
Locate the documentation that comes with the hard disk drive and follow
those instructions in addition to the instructions in this chapter.
•
In the WAE-512 and WAE-612, disk00 belongs in the left drive bay and
disk01 belongs in the right drive bay as seen when facing the drive bays.
•
If you are installing a SAS hard disk drive, see the documentation that comes
with the drive before installing it.
Note
To avoid damage to the hard disk drive connectors, make sure that the
cover is in place and fully closed whenever you install or remove a hard
disk drive.

Chapter 4
Installing Hardware Options
Working with Hard Disk Drives
•
Caution
All hard disk drives being used in the WAE should have the same throughput
speed rating. Mixing hard disk drives with different speed ratings will cause
all hard disk drives to operate at the lower throughput speed.
To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the device for more than 10
minutes without either a hard disk drive or a filler panel installed in each bay.
Installing SATA Hard Disk Drives
Note
The WAE-512 supports simple-swap SATA hard disk drives. Simple-swap hard
disk drives are not hot-swappable. Disconnect all power from the server before
removing or installing a simple-swap hard disk drive.
Note
The WAE-612 hardware supports hot-swappable SATA hard disk drives; however,
you must be running WAAS 4.0.13 or a later version to obtain the software
support for hot-swapping. If you are running a WAAS version prior to 4.0.13, we
recommend that you power down your WAE-612 when swapping or installing
new hard disk drives.
To install an SATA hard disk drive in a bay, follow these steps:
Step 1
Inspect the new drive for any signs of damage.
Step 2
Review the information in the “Safety Warnings” section on page 2-1, and the
“Safety Guidelines” section on page 2-4.

Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area
Application Engine
Proper use of preventive maintenance procedures can keep your system in good
operating condition and minimize the need for costly, time-consuming service
procedures. This appendix contains maintenance procedures that you should
perform regularly.
This appendix covers the following maintenance tasks:
•
Maintaining Your Site Environment, page C-1
•
Using Power Protection Devices, page C-7
Maintaining Your Site Environment
An exhaust fan in the power supply cools the power supply and system by drawing
air in through various openings in the system and blowing it out the back.
However, the fan also draws dust and other particles into the system, causing
contaminant buildup, which results in an increase in the system’s internal
temperature and interferes with the operation of various system components.
To avoid these conditions, we recommend keeping your work environment clean
to reduce the amount of dust and dirt around the system, thereby reducing the
amount of contaminants drawn into the system by the power supply fan.
This section discusses various environmental factors that can adversely affect
system performance and longevity.

Maintaining Your Site Environment
Temperature
Temperature extremes can cause a variety of problems, including premature aging
and failure of chips or mechanical failure of devices. Extreme temperature
fluctuations can cause chips to become loose in their sockets and can cause
expansion and contraction of disk drive platters, resulting in read or write data
errors.
To minimize the negative effects of temperature on system performance, follow
these guidelines:
•
Ensure that the system is operated in an environment no colder than 50°F
(10°C) or hotter than 95°F (35°C).
•
Ensure that the system has adequate ventilation. Do not place it within a
closed-in wall unit or on top of cloth, which can act as insulation. Do not
place it where it will receive direct sunlight, particularly in the afternoon. Do
not place it next to a heat source of any kind, including heating vents during
winter.
Adequate ventilation is particularly important at high altitudes. System
performance may not be optimum when the system is operating at high
temperatures as well as high altitudes.
•
Make sure that all slots and openings on the system remain unobstructed,
especially the fan vent on the back of the system.
•
Clean the system at regular intervals to avoid any buildup of dust and debris,
which can cause a system to overheat.
•
If the system has been exposed to abnormally cold temperatures, allow a
2-hour warm-up period to bring it up to normal operating temperature before
turning it on. Failure to do so may cause damage to internal components,
particularly the hard disk drive.
•
If intermittent system failures are noticed, try reseating any socketed chips,
which might have become loose because of temperature fluctuations.

Humidity
High-humidity conditions can cause moisture migration and penetration into the
system. This moisture can cause corrosion of internal components and
degradation of properties such as electrical resistance and thermal conductivity.
Extreme moisture buildup inside the system can result in electrical shorts, which
can cause serious damage to the system.
Each system is rated to operate at 8 to 80 percent relative humidity, with a
humidity gradation of 10 percent per hour. Buildings in which climate is
controlled by air conditioning in the warmer months and by heat during the colder
months usually maintain an acceptable level of humidity for system equipment.
However, if a system is located in an unusually humid location, a dehumidifier can
be used to maintain the humidity within an acceptable range.
Altitude
Operating a system at high altitude (low pressure) reduces the efficiency of forced
and convection cooling and can result in electrical problems related to arcing and
corona effects. This condition can also cause sealed components with internal
pressure, such as electrolytic capacitors, to fail or perform at reduced efficiency.
Each system is rated to operate at a maximum altitude of 6998 feet (2133 meters)
and can be stored at a maximum altitude of 15,000 feet (4570 meters).
Dust and Particles
A clean operating environment can greatly reduce the negative effects of dust and
other particles, which act as insulators and interfere with the operation of a
system’s mechanical components. In addition to regular cleaning, you should
follow these guidelines to deter contamination of the system equipment:
•
Do not permit smoking anywhere near the system.
•
Do not permit food or drink near the system.
•
Use dust covers when the system is not in use.
•
Close windows and outside doors to keep out airborne particles.

Corrosion
The oil from a person’s fingers or prolonged exposure to high temperature or
humidity can corrode the gold-plated edge connectors and pin connectors on
various devices in the system. This corrosion on system connectors is a gradual
process that can eventually lead to intermittent failures of electrical circuits.
To prevent corrosion, you should avoid touching contacts on boards and cards.
Protecting the system from corrosive elements is especially important in moist
and salty environments, which tend to promote corrosion. Also, as a further
deterrent to corrosion, the system should not be used in extreme temperatures, as
explained in the “Temperature” section on page C-2.
Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) results from the buildup of static electricity on the
human body and certain other objects. This static electricity is often produced by
simple movements such as walking across a carpet. ESD is a discharge of a static
electrical charge that occurs when a person whose body contains such a charge
touches a component in the system. This static discharge can cause components,
especially chips, to fail. ESD is a problem particularly in dry environments where
the relative humidity is below 50 percent.
To reduce the effects of ESD, you should observe the following guidelines:
•
Wear a grounding wrist strap. If a grounding wrist strap is unavailable, touch
an unpainted metal surface on the chassis periodically to neutralize any static
charge.
•
Keep components in their antistatic packaging until they are installed.
•
Avoid wearing clothing made of wool or synthetic materials.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) from
a system can adversely affect devices such as radio and television (TV) receivers
operating near the system. Radio frequencies emanating from a system can also

Appendix C
Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine
Maintaining Your Site Environment
interfere with cordless and low-power telephones. Conversely, RFI from
high-power telephones can cause spurious characters to appear on the system’s
monitor screen.
RFI is defined as any EMI with a frequency above 10 kilohertz (kHz). This type
of interference can travel from the system to other devices through the power
cable and power source or through the air like transmitted radio waves. The
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) publishes specific regulations to
limit the amount of EMI and RFI emitted by computing equipment. Each system
meets these FCC regulations.
To reduce the possibility of EMI and RFI, follow these guidelines:
•
Operate the system only with the system cover installed.
•
Ensure that the screws on all peripheral cable connectors are securely
fastened to their corresponding connectors on the back of the system.
•
Always use shielded cables with metal connector shells for attaching
peripherals to the system.
Magnetism
Because they store data magnetically, hard disk drives are extremely susceptible
to the effects of magnetism. Hard disk drives should never be stored near magnetic
sources such as the following:
•
Monitors
•
TV sets
•
Printers
•
Telephones with real bells
•
Fluorescent lights

Power Source Interruptions
Systems are especially sensitive to variations in voltage supplied by the AC power
source. Overvoltage, undervoltage, and transients (or spikes) can erase data from
memory or even cause components to fail. To protect against these types of
problems, power cables should always be properly grounded and one or both of
the following methods should be used:
•
Use one of the power protection devices described in the “Using Power
Protection Devices” section on page C-7.
•
Place the system on a dedicated power circuit (rather than sharing a circuit
with other heavy electrical equipment). In general, do not allow the system to
share a circuit with any of the following:
– Copier machines
– Air conditioners
– Vacuum cleaners
– Space heaters
– Power tools
– Teletype machines
– Adding machines
– Laser printers
– Facsimile machines
– Any other motorized equipment
Besides these appliances, the greatest threats to a system’s supply of power are
surges or blackouts caused by electrical storms. Whenever possible, turn off the
system and any peripherals and unplug them from their power sources
during thunderstorms.
If a blackout occurs—even a temporary one—while the system is turned on, turn
off the system immediately and disconnect it from the electrical outlet. Leaving
the system on may cause problems when the power is restored; all other
appliances left on in the area can create large voltage spikes that can damage
the system.

Using Power Protection Devices
Using Power Protection Devices
A number of devices are available that protect against power problems such as
power surges, transients, and power failures. The following sections describe
some of these devices.
Surge Protectors
Surge protectors are available in a variety of types and usually provide a level of
protection commensurate with the cost of the device. Surge protectors prevent
voltage spikes, such as those caused during an electrical storm, from entering a
system through the electrical outlet. Surge protectors, however, do not offer
protection against brownouts, which occur when the voltage drops more than
20 percent below the normal AC line voltage level.
Line Conditioners
Line conditioners go beyond the overvoltage protection of surge protectors. Line
conditioners keep a system’s AC power source voltage at a fairly constant level
and therefore can handle brownouts. Because of this added protection, line
conditioners cost more than surge protectors—up to several hundred dollars.
However, these devices cannot protect against a complete loss of power.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems offer the most complete protection
against variations in power because they use battery power to keep the system
running when AC power is lost. The battery is charged by the AC power while it
is available, so once AC power is lost, the battery can provide power to the system
for a limited amount of time—from 15 minutes to an hour or so—depending on
the UPS system.

Using Power Protection Devices
UPS systems range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand
dollars, with the more expensive units allowing you to run larger systems for a
longer period of time when AC power is lost. Surge protectors should be used with
all UPS systems, and the UPS system should be Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
safety-approved.
