WCCP performance on N7K

Dears,

We have 6513 VSS running multiple WCCP service groups to redirect the traffic to the WAN accelerators, and the CPU utilization is very high (which a well known issue for the WCCP with the 65xx series), we are planning to replace it with Nexus7K but we would like to know if there is an enhancement for the WCCP on the NX-OS, and where the WCCP is being processed? Is it in the HW of SW?

Are we going to face the same high CPU utilization issue with WCCP on the Nexus7K similar to what we had on 6500 switch?

Regards

Faiz

WCCP is implemented in hardware on the Nexus 7000. I would check the guidelines and limitation section of the Nexus 7000 config guide to rule out any obvious caveats.
