Hi all,

I have a question about the calculation of the hit rate of a cache. Using
different tools (i.e. Cache Manager, Squidstats, Squidtimes, spa,
manual log analysis, etc.) I obtain wildly varying values for the hit
rate of our cache. Which of these should be considered 'correct'? What I
would like to know is what percentage of requests (TCP) to my proxy is
actually being served from the cache. How do other people caculate this?
