ro root=/dev/vda6 crashkernel=128M img_id=2 quiet loglevel=4 panic=10 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,1152001.- Append the word "single" like this: ro root=/dev/vda6 crashkernel=128M img_id=2 quiet loglevel=4 panic=10 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200 single
2.- Remove the 'quite' - that tells it to log very little. If something is going wrong it is useful to see all the mesasges.
3.- Change the 'loglevel=4' to 'loglevel=7'. That changes the messages that are shown from ERR and above to INFO and above. It may show something else of use.
4.- If using the VGA console and a keyboard remove the 'console=ttyS0,9600' - that'll stop it talking out the serial point.5.- If using the serial port remove the 'console=tty0' - that will stop it talking to the VGA output/local keyboard.
A new policy action has been added. By selecting the new policy action of HTML Response, the source computer will be given an HTML response specified in the policy. This is useful when coupled with Adaptive Response. When a user has exceeded their usage, they are put into a specified network object. All users that are in that network object can be directed to a new policy with the HTML Response policy action so that when they try to visit an HTTP site, they will be given back a custom HTML page that can explain that they have exceeded their quota.You can find this new feature documented in the online help on the policy documentation page.You can also find some sample use cases in the online documentation.
A new policy action has been added. By selecting the new policy action of HTTP redirect, any http traffic from a source computer will be responded to with a redirection to the specified URL. This is useful for implementing a captive portal solution when combined with the AD user integration API.You can find this new feature documented in the online help on the policy documentation page.You can also find some sample user cases in the online documentation.
The Adaptive Response feature has been extended to allow quotes based on Time. Adaptive Response objects could previously be defined in terms of the volume of data a user consumes. With this version, the quota can be defined in terms of data volume, elapsed time, or both data volume and time consumed, whichever comes first. The time is tracked in increments of 5 minutes and starts counting down from the first flow for the defined user.The online documentation for defining Adaptive Response objects has been updated.
The Application Object definition has been extended to include DSCP marks. This allows you to define an Application object based on a single DSCP mark, multiple DSCP marks or a range of DSCP marks. In previous versions of the firmware, DSCP marks could be used as part of the policy definition independent of Application definition. This allowed QoS based on DSCP marks, however, the reporting based on DSCP marks was not as complete and robust as that of applications. By defining an Application object based on DSCP marks, all application reporting can be used to track traffic with particular DSCP marks.You can read about how to define applications with DSCP marks in the online help page for application definition.
The context sensitive help has been removed from the appliance and is now hosted on docs.exinda.com. All the context sensitive help links have been updated to point to docs.exinda.com. This has reduced the size of the firmware download. A consequence of this is that the computer accessing the Web UI and the help must have internet access. The documentation can be found here.
The Exinda appliance provides solutions to specific problems that the network manager or application manager has. The solution describes what problem is being solved and how it is solved, often with a short video of how to use it or an image of what the screen or solution will look like.Solutions in the Solution Center:
- Application Performance
- Salesforce.com Performance – Tracks the application performance score, inbound and outbound bandwidth, top users, top hosts for salesforce.com
- Office 365 Performance - Tracks the application performance score, inbound and outbound bandwidth, top users, top hosts for Office 365.
- Adobe Creative Cloud Performance - Tracks the application performance score, inbound and outbound bandwidth, top users, top hosts for Adobe Creative Cloud.
- Application Performance for My App - Tracks the application performance score, inbound and outbound bandwidth, top users, top hosts for any application that the user chooses. They can create multiple application performance solutions by requesting the solution repeatedly with different applications. Custom-defined applications can also be tracked.
- VoIP Performance – Tracks the users’ experience of VoIP calls by showing the number of good, tolerable, and bad calls as well as showing attributes of the worst calls (such as delay, jitter, loss, MOS, rFactor). Note that the VoIP Performance monitor is a repackaging of the VoIP monitor on previous versions of the Exinda appliance.
- Network Governance
- RIAA Notice Prevention – Provides instructions on how to configure the Exinda appliance to combat the unauthorized distribution of copyrighted materials and so prevent the RIAA / MPAA notices.
- Recreational Traffic - Tracks the amount of network traffic due to different recreational traffic categories. Note that the Recreational Traffic Usage monitor is a repackaging of the Recreational Traffic chart on the dashboard of previous versions of the Exinda appliance.
- Project Readiness
- Data Center Continuity – Provides instructions on how to create and apply different appliance configuration sets, so that in an emergency, the users doesn’t have to tweak policies, read help manuals, and try to figure out how they would like to control the network.
- WAN Planning
- Bandwidth Usage Summary – Provides instructions on where to find an interface chart that shows inbound and outbound throughput of the appliance.
- Bandwidth Usage – Top Apps – Provides instructions on where to find bandwidth usage for your top apps as well as how to configure it such that the chart reflects the total throughput through your appliance.
The appliance analyzes the traffic and notices patterns or situations that Exinda would recommend a course of action, such as:
- If an application enters the daily top 10 applications and has not been in the top 10 in the previous week, Exinda would recommend to either control or protect the application, depending on whether it is a business critical application.
- If traffic is not caught by your configured circuits and virtual circuits, Exinda would recommend to investigate by looking at Virtual Circuits monitor or Real Time monitor, then redefine your virtual circuits to capture all of the circuit data.The recommendation engine proactively finds issues in the network and helps to tune the network to improve the network’s performance and the network users’ performance.
The following data types are represented as time series charts. They also report the entire data through the appliance – not just the top.
- Virtual Circuits
- Applications for a subnet
- Applications for a virtual circuitThe time series representation allows users to see traffic patterns, such as when these traffic types are spiking. The completeness of the data allows users to see the entire data for these data types – not just the top values for these charts.
Description: Bridge may be connected incorrectly. More 'internal' IPs have been detected on the WAN-side of the bridge than on the LAN-side. This can occur if the WAN and LAN connections reversed, where the WAN port connects to your LAN and your LAN port connects to your WAN. Or this can occur if you have external network objects defined as internal or vice versa. Note: The bridge direction check is only enabled for a limited time after boot. If you are sure that the WAN and LAN connections are correct you can ignore this alert.

Simply type in the commands in the "Commands" Section of the Scheduled Jobs tab and it runs on a scheduled basis.
I would like to be able to schedule time that exinda sends out daily reports. The reason I am asking for this is that the exinda is switched off every night when these reports are scheduled to be sent, thus I don’t get them
In versions prior to 6.4.4, the Exinda Appliance would always use TCP Option 30 to discover community member peers for acceleration. Starting in 6.4.4 this mechanism has moved to using TCP Option 230 instead.Several modes of operation have been added for acceleration compatibility with versions prior to 6.4.4. The default compatibility mode used in 6.4.4 should be sufficient for all users. The other modes have been added to cover all necessary use cases. The modes are as follows:
- 30+230 (default setting) - This mode continues to send option 30, but sets a flag indicating that the device is capable of handling option 230. In this mode, the appliance will properly handle receiving an option 30 or an option 230. With this mode, the device attempts to learn which of its peers are capable of using option 230. Once the appliance has learned that a peer can use option 230, it will start using option 230 with that peer.
- 230 - This mode only sends and receives option 230. This will become the default in a future release.
- 30 - This mode only sends and receives option 30. This mode can be used if you are having problems with TCP option 230 being sent through various devices like firewalls.
- 230-compat - This mode will always send option 230 and will accept option 30
- 30-compat - This mode will always send option 30 and will accept option 230This mode can be configured on the System-> Optimization -> TCP tab.
