Dear guys,

We are from NECTEC, Thailand running 2 cache servers, cache1 and . Although we tell our downstream nodes to point to us
both cache1 and cache2 but it seems that cache1 now doing much work than
cache2. Then I try new method by separating domain,

At cache1:

cache_host parent 8080 3130 proxy-only
cache_host_domain com

At cache2:

cache_host parent 8080 3130 proxy-only
cache_host_domain !.com

I'm not sure if this is a good way to this, will the data in both cache is
duplicated? And I wonder about cache size, do we have a formula to
calculate the cache size. Cache1 is Alpha2x5/466MHz 512MB without
1,500,000-2,000,000 request/day and 25 GB of cache space causes it to have
a very slow response time. Now I just restart the cache space and both of
them works fine (fast).
