The Branch Repeater Service Layer

The tests mapped to this layer reveal how efficient the branch repeater is by monitoring and reporting the following:

  • Load on the branch repeater and how well it processes its load;
  • How well the branch repeater accelerates ICA traffic;
  • Service classes defined in the reporter and whether/not the branch repeater optimizes the throughput of incoming and outgoing traffic for each service class;
  • WAN and LAN links managed by the branch repeater and the level of traffic acceleration performed by the branch repeater for each link;
  • How each traffic-shaping policy influences the bandwidth consumption of links and whether/not any policy requires fine-tuning
