This is interesting. The UK National Cache currently runs Netscape
Proxy (I'm in the process of planning a possible change to Squid). We
have a monitoring script that checks each machine every 5 minutes to
see that the cache is OK. We frequently get errors stating that
requests timed out at 600 seconds (10 minutes). It looks like there's
some sort of problem in Netscape proxy, and we aren't the only people
to experience it.
