We are one of major PC-online service company in Korea.
Our proxy server are running with squid 1.0.20 on SUN Ultra station 1
has 256M RAM and 12G Hard disks.

It handles 12 million connections a day.
You can find daily report in

I am thinking about changing to Netscape proxy if it has benefit
when works on very busy service area.
But I have no comparison data squid and Netscape.
Any comment will be appreciated.
