This page has enable/disable toggles for the appliance’s features, plus a master enable/disable toggle called Traffic Processing.
In normal use, this page is helpful mostly for disabling features, since many features require more configuration than simply toggling their state from disabled to enabled. Most features should be enabled on the relevant page under the Configuration menu.
This is the master enable/disable toggle. When disabled, all features of the Appliance are disabled and all traffic passes through without modification or traffic shaping.
This toggle enables and disables the acceleration engine.
This toggle enables and disables the traffic-shaping engine.
Sets the CIFS/SMB/Windows Filesystem acceleration mode. Options are Enabled for all CIFS, allowing full acceleration, Enabled for SMB1 Only, which accelerates the SMB1 protocol (used through Windows XP and Windows Server 2003), Enabled for SMB2 Only, which accelerates the newer SMB2 protocol (Vista/Windows 7/Windows Server 2008), or Disabled.
Can be used to disable group mode, if enabled.
Can be used to disable high-availability mode, if enabled.
Enables ICA multi-stream acceleration support. If enabled, multi-stream ICA sessions will be negotiated when both the client and server are multi-stream-enabled. Otherwise, single-stream ICA sessions will be used.
If multi-stream, multi-port ICA is enabled on your XenApp servers, you must also modify the “ICA” service class to include the additional ports you have defined for multi-port mode.
Allows MAPI session data to match non-MAPI session data in the compressor.
SCPS is a TCP variant used in satellite communication and similar applications. The Appliance can accelerate SCPS connections if this option is selected.
The main practical difference between SCPS and the default Appliance behavior is that SCPS-style selective negative acknowledgements (SNACKs) are used instead of standard selective acknowledgements (SACKs). These two methods of enhancing data retransmissions are mutually exclusive, so if the Appliance on one end of the connection has SCPS enabled and one does not, retransmission performance will suffer. This condition will cause an SCPS Mode Mismatch alert.
We recommend that, if you must mix SCPS-enabled Appliances with non-SCPS enabled Appliances, that you deploy them in such a way that mismatches do not occur. This can be done with IP-based service class rules or by always deploying the Appliances so that accelerated paths contain matched pairs rather than odd numbers of units.
