Cisco WCCP

As I was looking to prepare for a Cisco WCCP setup, I came across the following command and was wondering what does the "web-cache" command does on a router compared to just using ip wccp 90 redirect-list 120 group-list 10 password 12345

I have listed the web-cache command below for reference:

ip wccp web-cache redirect-list 120 group-list 10 password 12345

Any suggestion is appreciated

Deals with handling when one has multiple wccp available nodes through which the router can transparently to the user proxy....

The web-cache directive designates manually the preferred primary host through which the router will process ...

If you only have one or if you gave no preference, the following explains how the wccp determines through which proxy the requests will be routed:

Thank you for the comment and assistance! I came across just after posting the question which I think explains the difference between web-cache and the service-group ID.

Appreciate for the help :)
