Q: How many users can squid handle?

We're planning on setting up a campus-wide proxy/cache server to help
reduce our T1 congestion. I've tested squid for a few months with
only a few users and it has worked really well. Is anyone using squid
for thousands of users? Can it handle the load?

The system we're going to purchase will be a Sun Ultra 140 with lots
of memory, SunSwift board for 100Mbps ethernet and fast-wide SCSI, and
several gig of disk.

I'm not on this mailing list yet so please reply to boyns@sdsu.edu.
