Hi all,
        just a quick clarification request. Does the cache_mem parameter specify
the total amount of memory to be used by Squid or only the amount of memory
for incoming objects and hot objects. (I am talking about the NOVM version).

        If it is only for incomming objects and hot objects then are there any
good suggestions as to how I can determine the size to set for cache_mem,
given I have 128MB of RAM on a dedicated Squid cache box.

Any comments/suggestions much appreciated.
