WCCP Deployment with VSS

I am looking at deploying a redundant, load balancing WAAS solution at a Data Center.


2 x 694 WAE's Application Accelerators

1 x 294 WAE Central Manager

2 x 6506 Catalyst core switches running VSS

2 x 3925 ISR WAN routers connecting to seperate WAN clouds.

We will not be using AppNav thus I will use WCCP to provide high availability and load sharing.

I have some basic questions for the Application Accelerators:

- Which interfaces do a patch to the switches? I assume I do not use the inline ports for a WCCP deployment?

- Can the Gi0/0 and Gi0/1 interfaces be in a port-channel?

- Which WCCP pack-forwarding method would be recommended with my hardware?

- Which egress method would be recommended?

Any assistanace is appreciated.

WCCP Deployment with VSS

based on you setup, and considering 6500 doing redirection rather than routers (we can also build setup where router will act as WCCP server and take role of traffic redirection, and 6500 is only used a L2 media between router and WAE), belows is the best recommendation for 6500---

assignement method----mask (reduce it from default value to satisfy our need and save TCAM resource)


Egress---generic GRE

interception--in direction (61in ,62 in)

Abve combination will fully supported in H/w.

And yes gig0/1 and gi0/0 can be configured as etherchannel for more detail
