SummaryIn some situations, while accelerating traffic, the CPU usage on the device can spike up to 60% beyond average use, and all SMB related traffic will fail until the process is restarted.
OverviewOn an accelerated Exinda, SMB traffic is routed through the acceleration process in order to properly provide the WAN reduction and bandwidth savings expected.
However, occasionally and randomly, a problem can occur with accelerated SMB traffic, where the average CPU of the device will spike up to a significant usage, even if it is never high in general device use, and all SMB connections will fail or time out. If left alone, this problem can cause the SMB acceleration process to crash. When the CPU activity returns to normal, if the SMB Acceleration process is restarted, the SMB traffic will start working again
