Cisco ASA Behaviour with Packet Losses and Overtaking

A question posed to ask.wireshark by wdurand in September asked why reading a file across a WAN from a NetApp file server was slower than the equivalent writing operation:
The network path included a Cisco ASA, and an explanation for the slow transfer requires an understanding of ASA behaviour. We present here our analysis of similar ASA behaviour, drawing on a pair of concurrent captures taken from both ends of a network path that traversed an ASA, from an Oracle database server to a client workstation. System behaviour is illustrated with NetData charts.
