WAN Optimization - SQL Server 2016 Availability Group

James Yang



I was wondering if anyone else has noticed that the Steelheads (CX5070) aren't optimizing SQL Availability Group (AG) traffic very well?  I've noticed optimization of around 25% - 50% reduction in traffic versus around 97% reduction of users accessing SQL Server.  On the SQL AG Dashboard, the Log Send Rate is around 5-8 Mbps.  Our bandwidth is around 400 Mbps between the two sites. 


Can someone please shed some light on this?  I'm stumped.


Thank you!
