        I think I got most of these and another stupid error. There will
be others.

        You can do the http_hits/total_requests with the MIB as it stands.
I could put in a % hit rate. However as you can calculate it with the
other objects in the MIB I prefer the agent does it rather than squid.

        This one I will think about. Anyone else vote for it?

        I have not put this in but I will. It will display the visable

        The other request was LRU, while not squid specific it might be a
little too specific. I will need to investigate but other proxies may
simply not release this information. They could of course use some other
method of calculating this as well.

        You can expect the squid extensions in about 2 weeks. I would like
to get a version of squid which works with this revised MIB going so I can
release it asap. It will however take a while.

        On top of that there are a few other things to do. Lets hope we
get lots of comments soon :-)
