THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.

THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequencyenergy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequencyenergy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.

You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:

Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.

Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.

Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.

Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)

Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532

Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

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)—Yournetwork 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)—Operationof 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 commitfull-timeresources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operationalperformance 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)—Yourequire information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

When WAAS software is installed, the WAE appliance can function as either a Central Manager or as an Application Acceleration Engine. When ACNS software is installed, the WAE appliance functions as a Content Engine or one of the other ACNS device modes (Content Router or Content Distribution Manager). When WAFS software is installed, the WAE appliance functions as a File Engine. (See Figure 1-1.)

Figure 1-1WAE-511andWAE-611—FrontView

The WAE-511andWAE-611are configured forAC-inputpower and have a singleAC-inputpower supply.

The WAE appliance has an integrated dual-portEthernet controller. This controller provides an interface for connecting to10-Mbps,100-Mbps,or1000-Mbpsnetworks.

Wide Area Application Engines have two 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-TXEthernet ports withRJ-45receptacles. Both Ethernet ports support autodetect speed mode andfull-duplexoperation, which enable simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the

Ethernet LAN.

In addition, the WAE-611is configured with one Ultra320low-voltagedifferential (LVD) small computer system interface (SCSI) port connector for attaching the Cisco Storage Array. This connector is located in Peripheral ComponentInterconnect-Extended(PCI-X)slot 2 on the back panel. (SeeFigure 1-2.)

Chapter 1 Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Software Functional Description

Software Functional Description

The operation of the WAE is dependent on the software application that is installed on it. This section describes WAAS, ACNS and WAFS software:

WAAS Software Description, page 1-4

ACNS Software Description, page 1-5

WAFS Software Description, page 1-5

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-likeaccess to information and applications across a geographically distributed network.

Migrate application and file servers from branch offices into centrally managed data centers.

Minimize unnecessary WAN bandwidth consumption through the use of advanced compression algorithms.

Provide print services to branch office users. Cisco WAAS allows you to configure a WAE as a print server so you do not need to deploy a dedicated system to fulfill print requests.

Improve application performance over the WAN by addressing the following common issues:

Low data rates (constrained bandwidth)

Slow delivery of frames (high network latency)

Higher rates of packet loss (low reliability)

Chapter 1 Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Software Functional Description

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-richcontent across the Internet or an intranet without performance losses orcontent-deliverydelays.

ACNS software offers the following content-basedservices:

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-cachingdevice and is generally positioned on the WAN edge between your enterprise network and the Internet.

Note TheWAE-611supportsdevice-modeconfiguration 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. TheWAE-511operates as a Content Engine only.

To deploy Cisco Content Engines with Cisco ACNS software within your existing network, your network must support Cisco IOS software and the Web Cache Communication Protocol (WCCP). WCCP transparently redirects HTTP requests to a Content Engine, and the Content Engine responds to those requests.

WAFS Software Description

With WAFS software installed, the WAE appliance functions as a File Engine. The File Engine is an Internet file delivery device that provides the following file-basedservices:

Segment-levelfile and metadata caching

Protocol-specificlatency reduction

Form and Function

Ports and LED Indicators

For adapter specifications, see Table A-4 in Appendix A.

Form and Function

Your appliance supports one optional 4-portEthernet inline network adapter. The inline network adapter is afull-height,three-quarter-lengthPCI-Xnetwork interface card that contains four independent Gigabit Ethernet ports. (SeeFigure 1-15.)

OL-7220-02

Chapter 1 Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Hardware Features

Figure 1-15Inline Network Adapter

159701

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-capableinterfaces 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

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 areport-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-throughcables, crossover cables, or any combination of the two cable types, regardless of the type of device. However, for consistency, we recommend that you usestraight-throughcables for all Gigabit Ethernet connections.

Table 1-9 shows the cable requirements for WAE andnon-WAEconnections when you are using Gigabit Ethernet end to end.

Some switches support automatic medium-dependentinterface crossover (MDIX). You can configure MDIX by using themdix 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 orstraight-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. (SeeTable 1-10.For illustrations and examples, see the“Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections” section on page 1-22.)

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-throughcable.

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 1-10 shows the cable requirements for WAE andnon-WAEconnections when you are using Fast Ethernet end to end.

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-throughcable 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-throughcable 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 astraight-throughcable, so use the crossover cable instead.)

If you are connecting two switches (or two similar devices), use straight-throughcables on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE inline appliance.

Figure 1-17 throughFigure 1-19 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-throughcables, 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 1-18).The WAE can be physically placed inline between two distinct network paths, creating redundant WAN links. (SeeFigure 1-17.)

Two WAEs with inline network adapters can also be installed back-to-backin 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. (SeeFigure 1-18.)

Note When you connect two WAE inline appliances to each other in serial fashion, always use a crossover cable between the two WAEs. (SeeFigure 1-19.)

Step 2 Attach a second bracket to the opposite side of the chassis in the same manner.

Step 3 After you secure the brackets to the chassis,rack-mountthe chassis by threading at least two screws through the bracket flanges on each side of the chassis into the corresponding holes in each side of the rack. You need two people to install the chassis in therack—oneperson to hold the chassis and one person to secure it to the rack.

The inlet and exhaust ports for cooling air are located in the front and rear of the chassis, respectively; therefore, multiple chassis can be stacked with little or no vertical clearance.

Installing the Chassis in a Four-PostRack

The four-postrack-mountingsystem does not require any tools for installation, unless you are shipping a device mounted in a rack. When you are shipping a device in a rack, you need a Phillips screwdriver.Figure 3-3 shows the items that you need to install the chassis in a four-post rack. If any items are missing or damaged, contact your place of purchase.

Installing the Chassis on a Tabletop

When you install a chassis on a workbench or tabletop, ensure that the surface is clean and in a safe location and that you have considered the following:

The chassis should be installed off the floor. (Dust that accumulates on the floor is drawn into the interior of the chassis by the cooling fans. Excessive dust inside the device can cause overtemperature conditions and component failures.)

There must be approximately 19 inches (48.26 cm) of clearance at the front and rear of the chassis for accessing network cables or equipment.

The device must receive adequate ventilation (it cannot be installed in an enclosed cabinet where ventilation is inadequate).

Chapter 3 Installing the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Removing or Replacing a Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

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

Installing DIMMs

Adding memory to your device is an easy way to make programs run faster. You can increase the amount of memory in your device by installing additional dual-inlinememory modules (DIMMs). Your device uses a noninterleaved memory configuration.

When you install additional memory, note the following information:

Memory modules are installed on the system board in the DIMM slots shown in Figure 4-5.Devices with a single DIMM should have the module installed in DIMM slot 1. For devices with two DIMMs, use slots 1 and 3. For devices with four DIMMs use slots 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Review the memory specifications for your WAE model in the “Appliance Specifications” section on page A-1.Note the following information regarding software support:

WAFS software supports up to 1 GB of memory.

ACNS software supports up to 512 MB of memory. ACNS software does not recognize additional memory over 512 MB.

When you install or remove DIMMS, the configuration information in the device changes. Therefore, you must change and save the new configuration information by using the Configuration/Setup Utility program. When you restart the device, the system displays a message indicating that the memory configuration has changed. Start the Configuration/Setup Utility program and choose Save Settings. SeeAppendix D, “Using the Configuration/Setup Utility Program,” for more information about using the Configuration/Setup Utility program.

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-consumingservice 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.

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

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-inwall 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-hourwarm-upperiod 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.

OL-7220-02

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Maintaining Your Site Environment

Humidity

High-humidityconditions 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.

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Maintaining Your Site Environment

Corrosion

The oil from a person’s fingers or prolonged exposure to high temperature or humidity can corrode the gold-platededge 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

 

Cisco Wide Area Application Engine 511 and 611 Hardware Installation Guide

C-4

OL-7220-02

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

Maintaining Your Site Environment

interfere with cordless and low-powertelephones. Conversely, RFI fromhigh-powertelephones 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—evena temporaryone—whilethe 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.

OL-7220-02

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

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—upto 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—from15 minutes to an hour orso—dependingon the UPS system.

Appendix C Maintaining the Cisco Wide Area Application Engine

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.

Configuration/Setup Utility Menu Options

System Information

Choose this option to view information about your device. When you make changes through other options in the Configuration/Setup Utility program, some of those changes are reflected in the system information; you cannot change settings directly in the system information.

This option is on the full Configuration/Setup Utility menu only.

Product Data

Choose this option to view the machine type and model of your device, the serial number, and the revision level or issue date of the BIOS code stored in electrically erasable programmable ROM (EEPROM).

Devices and I/O Ports

Choose this option to view or change assignments for devices and input/output (I/O) ports.

Choose this option to enable or disable integrated SCSI and Ethernet controllers and all standard ports (such as serial and parallel). If you disable a device, it cannot be configured, and the operating system will not be able to detect it (this is equivalent to disconnecting the device). If you disable the integrated Ethernet controller and no Ethernet adapter is installed, the device will have no Ethernet capability. If you disable the integrated USB controller, the device will have no USB capability; to maintain USB capability, make sure that Enabled is selected for the USB Host Controller and USB BIOS Legacy Support options.

This option is on the full Configuration/Setup Utility menu only.

Start Options

Choose this option to view or change the start options. Startup sequences take effect when you start the device. The startup sequence specifies the order in which the device checks devices to find a boot record. The device starts from the first boot record that it finds.

This option is on the full Configuration/Setup Utility menu only.

Date and Time

Choose this option to set the date and time in the device, in 24-hourformat (hour:minute:second). This option is on the full Configuration/Setup Utility menu only.
