What I mean, if I want to move squid from LInux to Solaris x86, does the performance increase. Squid is better on Solaris than linux. Any pb with squid on Solaris X86?

I assume your using some form of disk striping. If so, ensure the interlace
value is small. i.e. 4 to 8k
This is required to ensure balancing of writes across all disks for small
