        Hope you can help. I have a Sparc US1, 512MB of RAM, 10GB of disk
for our web cache.
        What size should the cache_mem parameter be set to, given that the
machine does nothing else apart from be the web cache? Should this
cache_mem parameter be close to the total amount of memory available (minus
amounts for the DNS servers and ftpget processes) ?

can't find out any more information about how to calculate a good value for
        Any help appreciated and any more information if needed can be
