WCCP Testing and Troubleshooting

When working with WCCP, the appliance provides different ways of monitoring the status of the WCCP interface, and your router should also provide information.

Monitoring: Appliance Performance: WCCP Page—The WCCP page reports the current state of the WCCP link, and reports most problems.

Log Entries—The Monitoring: Appliance Performance: Logging page shows a new entry each time WCCP mode is established or lost.

Router Status—On the router, the “show ip wccp” command shows the status of the WCCP link:

``` pre codeblock Router>enable Password: Router#show ip wccp Global WCCP information: Router information: Router Identifier: Protocol Version: 2.0
