SaaS Optimization Tab

Configuration > Templates & Policies > Applications & SaaS > SaaS Optimization

When SaaS optimization is enabled, the SaaS Optimization tab provides a view of the information retrieved from the Cloud Intelligence Service.


This tab displays the following three buttons:

  • Configuration – Displays a table of SaaS optimization configurations for the listed appliances.

  • Monitoring – Displays a table of monitoring information related to SaaS optimization for the listed appliances that have been configured for SaaS optimization.

  • Export – Exports the displayed table as a .csv file. The exported file depends on whether the SaaS Optimization Configuration table or the SaaS Optimization Monitoring table is displayed when you click this button.

Configure for SaaS Optimization

To directly access an appliance, configure the SaaS applications or services you want to optimize, and enable SaaS optimization for the appliance, click the edit icon next to that appliance. The SaaS Optimization dialog box opens.

SaaS Optimization Dialog Box

Use the SaaS Optimization dialog box to optimize your SaaS applications. Descriptions of the three options at the top of the dialog box follow:

  • Enable SaaS Optimization – Select this check box to enable the appliance to contact the Cloud Intelligence Service and download information about SaaS services.

  • RTT Calculation Interval – Enter a value to specify how frequently Orchestrator recalculates the Round Trip Time for the enabled applications.

  • RTT Ping Interface – Select the interface to use to ping the enabled SaaS subnets for Round Trip Times. The default interface is wan0.

Descriptions for table columns displayed in the dialog box follow:

Field Description
Application Name Name of the SaaS application to optimize.
Optimize Select this check box to enable SaaS Optimization.
Advertise If Advertise is selected for a service (for example, SFDC), the appliance will:

Ping active SaaS subnets to determine RTT/metric

Add subnet sharing entries locally for subnets within RTT threshold

Advertise subnets and their metric (within threshold) via subnet sharing to client-side appliances

Upon seeing an SFDC flow, generate a substitute certificate for an SFDC SSL domain (one substitute certificate per domain)

Auto-generate dynamic NAT rules for SFDC (but not for unchecked services)
RTT Threshold Amount of time (in ms) allotted that specifies how often Orchestrator will recalculate the Round Trip Time for the enabled applications.

NOTE: You might want to set a higher RTT Threshold value to see a broader scope of reachable data servers for any given SaaS application. As best practice, production RTT Threshold values should not exceed 50 ms.
Domains Domain names where the SaaS is applied.
SaaS ID Unique identifier assigned to the SaaS application (for use in SaaS Optimization).

For more detailed information about SaaS optimization, navigate to the SaaS Optimization template.
