hi guys,

Can someone cache-digest-clued see if what Mark is seeing
is what happens?

Adrian, not running any live squids now

Hi Adrian,

Would it be true to say, that when using cache digests
only, and having say a dozen peers, that the top peers
get more 'action' than the lower peers, because the
first digest indicating a hit, gets the request?

This is not very good, as it means that the main load
is dumped onto the peers at the top of the peer list,
and they get overloaded more than if the load was
spread evenly across all peers with the objects.

Is this true? Can it be fixed to be even handed?
