Please be aware that the content in SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be migrated to the SAP Community in June and this forum will be retired.

Is it meaningful? if so, what constitutes a "too large" number?

The mainstream SQL Anywhere docs are virtually silent:

RemoteputWait Returns the number of remote put waits.

but elsewhere on the web there more detail can be found:

RemoteputWait The number of times the communication link has had to wait because it does not have buffers available to send information. This statistic is collected for NetBIOS and IPX protocols only.

"This statistic is collected for NetBIOS and IPX protocols only". Isn't that the answer to your "Is it meaningful" question?

When the server is attempting to send a packet to the client (or an other server for diagnostics or mirroring), and it needs to block because it is already processing a send, then this counter is incremented. Typically this will only occur if the server is sending data faster than the client (or possibly the network in the case of TCP/IP) can receive it. It does not indicate an error condition.
