After you associate an application acceleration plan with a Smart Access Gateway (SAG) instance, the on-premises networks associated with the SAG instance can use the bandwidth for application acceleration. This topic describes how to associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance.

Prerequisites

Before you associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance, make sure that the following requirements are met:
  • If you want to associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG CPE instance, the version of the SAG device associated with the SAG CPE instance must be 2.4.0 or later.

    If the version of the SAG device is earlier than 2.4.0, upgrade it. For more information, see Upgrade an SAG device to a later version.

  • If you want to associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG app instance, the version of the SAG app must be 2.4.0 or later.

    If the version of the SAG app is earlier than 2.4.0, upgrade it. For more information, see Install the SAG app.

  • The SAG instance to be associated is in the Available state.
  • An application acceleration plan is purchased. For more information, see Work with application acceleration plans.

Associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance on the Application Acceleration Plan page

  1. Log on to the Smart Access Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Application Acceleration Plan.
  4. On the Application Acceleration Plan page, find the application acceleration plan and click its ID.
  5. On the Associated SAG Instances tab, click Associate with SAG Instance.
  6. On the Associate With SAG Instance dialog box, click + Add, set the following parameters, and then click OK.
    Note You can associate an application acceleration plan with up to 20 SAG instances at a time.
    Parameter Description
    SAG Model Select an SAG type.

    You can associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance of the following types:

    • SAG devices, including the following models:
      • SAG-1000
      • SAG-100WM
    • SAG app
    SAG Instance Select the ID of the SAG instance to be associated.
    Maximum Bandwidth Select a maximum value for the bandwidth for application acceleration of the SAG instance. Unit: Mbit/s.
    Note The maximum bandwidth value of each SAG instance cannot exceed that of the associated application acceleration plan.

Associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance on the SAG instance page

You can associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance on the SAG or SAG APP Instances page.

  1. Log on to the Smart Access Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region.
  3. Go to one of the following pages based on the type of the SAG instance.
    • In the left-side navigation pane, click Smart Access Gateway to go to the SAG page. On the page that appears, you can find SAG CPE instances.
    • In the left-side navigation pane, choose Smart Access Gateway APP > SAG APP Instances to go to the SAG APP Instances page. On the page that appears, you can find SAG app instances.
  4. Find the SAG instance that you want to associate and click Associate with Bandwidth Plan in the Actions column.
  5. In the Associate with Bandwidth Plan dialog box, select an application acceleration plan, set a maximum bandwidth value, and then click OK.
    For each SAG instance, the maximum value of the Maximum Bandwidth parameter cannot exceed that of the associated application acceleration plan.

What to do next

After you associate an application acceleration plan with an SAG instance, you must add an application acceleration rule to allocate bandwidth resources for different applications. Then, on-premises networks can use the bandwidth for application acceleration to access applications. For more information, see Manage an application acceleration rule.

Related operations

If your on-premises networks no longer need the application acceleration service, you can disassociate the application acceleration plan from the SAG instance.

  1. Log on to the Smart Access Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Application Acceleration Plan.
  4. On the Application Acceleration Plan page, find the application acceleration plan and click its ID.
  5. On the Associated SAG Instances tab, find the SAG instance and click Disassociate in the Actions column.
  6. In the Disassociate Application Acceleration Plan dialog box, confirm the instance ID and click OK.
