Issue/Introduction

PacketShaper is showing an incorrect side for certain hosts, and traffic is being misclassified as SameSide class traffic.

Resolution

If Packetshaper sees a host IP address flip-flopping between inside and outside, it prefers inside and places that IP address as "inside" in the host database. This information is used only for compression and acceleration. You can manually set the side of the host using the host side set CLI command.

For classification of the traffic, PacketShaper looks at the actual flow at that moment, and not the host database. So, if you are not using compression and acceleration, then you don’t have to worry about it. In that case, run the sys set autoCreateSameSide 0 CLI command to disable SameSide class auto-creation, and then delete the SameSide class.
