Could you share the tracefile? Or could you provide us a screenshot without relative sequence numbers?

I don´t know exactly where the trace has been taken. But in the trace untaged and tagged frames can be seen.

In the Riverbed Optimize trace I can see the following behaviour: Frame #2 has been sent from Riverbed device to Cisco device. But with Frame #7 the Riverbed device talks directly with the F5 device.

This is different to the other trace.

I think the Frame #6 didn´t make it to the other host. But why? If I where you I would analyze if the MAC addresses we see in the trace are really correct.alt text
