The map or image layer to be cached. You can drag a map or image layer from the Catalog window to supply this parameter.

Service Cache Directory
The parent directory for the cache. This must be a registered ArcGIS Server cache directory.
Specifies how the tiling scheme will be defined. You can define a new tiling scheme with this tool or browse to a predefined tiling scheme file (.xml). A predefined scheme can be created by running the Generate Map Server Cache Tiling Scheme tool.
Specifies how the tiles will be scaled.
Number of Scales
The number of scale levels to create in the cache. This option is disabled if you create a custom list of scales.
Dots(Pixels) Per Inch
The dots per inch (DPI) of the intended output device. If a DPI is chosen that does not match the resolution of the output device, the scale of the map tile will appear incorrect. The default value is 96.
Tile Size (in pixels)
Specifies the width and height of the cache tiles in pixels. For the best balance between performance and manageability, avoid deviating from standard widths of 256 by 256 or 512 by 512.
Predefined Tiling Scheme
The path to a predefined tiling scheme file (usually named conf.xml).
Tiling origin in map units
The origin (upper left corner) of the tiling scheme in the coordinates of the spatial reference of the source map document. The extent of the source map document must be within (but does not need to coincide with) this region.
The scale levels available for the cache. These are not represented as fractions. Instead, use 500 to represent a scale of 1:500, for example.
Cache Tile Format
Specifies the cache tile format.
Tile Compression Quality
The JPEG compression quality (1–100). The default value is 75 for the JPEG tile format and 0 for other formats.
Compression is supported only for the JPEG format. Choosing a higher value will result in a larger file size with a higher-quality image. Choosing a lower value will result in a smaller file size with a lower-quality image.
Specifies the storage format of tiles.
|Output Map Service URL|
The output map service URL.
