Cache traffic - odd?

Hi folks,

We run two pretty well used cache servers and I have noticed
some odd traffic stats.

The idea of a cahce server is to serve objects locally, an offset of
this is that it saves bandwidth.

We use MRTG to monitor the ethernet line going to the cache server
from a Cisco switch and even though the server gets almost a 30%
HIT rate there is often more traffic going OUT TO THE SERVER than
there is come FROM THE SERVER - which is odd!

Occasionally it will go the other way around.

Anybody know why this is or have similar monitors of bandwidth
usage they can share!?


Best Regards,
Leigh Porter
