After you associate an application acceleration plan with a Smart Access Gateway (SAG) instance, you must configure an application acceleration rule. An application acceleration rule is used to allocate bandwidth resources for different applications. This topic describes how to add, modify, or delete an application acceleration rule.

Background information

Before you configure an application acceleration rule, take note of the following limits:
  • For each application acceleration plan, the sum of bandwidth values that you specify for different application acceleration rules cannot exceed the maximum bandwidth value of the application acceleration plan.
  • The combination of Region and Accelerated Application for each application acceleration rule must be unique.

    Assume that you have configured an application acceleration rule named A where Region is set to China (Hong Kong), Accelerated Application is set to Office 365 and Salesforce, and Maximum Bandwidth is set to 2 Mbit/s. In this case, you can configure another application acceleration rule where Region is set to Singapore (Singapore), Accelerated Application is set to Salesforce, and Maximum Bandwidth is set to 2 Mbit/s. However, you cannot create an application acceleration rule where Region is set to China (Hong Kong), Accelerated Application is set to Salesforce, and Maximum Bandwidth is set to 3 Mbit/s. You cannot add this rule because the value of Accelerated Application is the same as that of Rule A.

Add an application acceleration rule

  1. Log on to the SAG 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 details page, click the Application Acceleration Rules tab and click Add Application Acceleration Rule.
  6. In the Add Application Acceleration Rule dialog box, click + Add, set the following parameters, and then click OK.
    Parameter Description
    Region Select the region where the application that you want to access is deployed.
    Maximum Bandwidth Specify the maximum bandwidth that the on-premises networks can use to access the application. Unit: Mbit/s.
    Accelerated Application Select the application that you want to access.

Copy an application acceleration rule

You can copy an application acceleration rule by performing the following steps.

  1. Log on to the SAG 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 details page, click the Application Acceleration Rules tab.
  6. Find the application acceleration rule that you want to copy and click Clone in the Actions column.
  7. In the Copy Application Acceleration Rule dialog box, set Region and Accelerated Application, and then click OK.
    Note For the same application acceleration plan, the combination of Region and Accelerated Application for each application acceleration rule must be unique.

Modify an application acceleration rule

  1. Log on to the SAG 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 details page, click the Application Acceleration Rules tab.
  6. Find the application acceleration rule that you want to modify and click Edit in the Actions column.
  7. In the Modify Application Acceleration Rule, modify Region and Accelerated Application, and then click OK.

Delete an application acceleration rule

  1. Log on to the SAG 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 details page, click the Application Acceleration Rules tab.
  6. Find the application acceleration rule that you want to delete and click Remove in the Actions column.
  7. In the Delete Application Acceleration Rule dialog box, confirm the rule ID and click OK.
