My university currently uses Squid, but is considering deploying the Cisco
Cache Engine and then forcing redirection of all Web access through it. I am
trying to evaluate this approach in a systematic way. However, I can find
nothing except very vague marketing information on the Cisco home page.

1. Does anyone know any technical details about the Cisco Cache Engine?
2. Has anyone evaluated it? Do you have even second-hand information about it?
3. Has forced caching beeng successful on any large University campuses?

My impression is that there will always be some Web pages which will not be
properly served through a proxy cache, due to variations in the way HTTP is
used. Would others concur?

Thanks for your help,
Micah Beck
