I am responsible for more caches than just the half-dozen that Brisnet
have. All of 'em are squid. I'll just mention the biggest single setup,
soon to become just one of two around that size..

a) Requests: ~400,000 Cache-Hits: ~70% (number of requests increasing.
Only about 15% of the customers are connected yet)
b) 2200MB
c) Hard to tell. A few hundred at times.
d) 64GB
