TCP_HIT in Squid 2.0 is the same as in Squid 1.1, I guess. There are new
types of hits though if you are using Cache Digests. I do not know if
calamaris can automatically detect new tags in the access log.

Apart from that, how does Calamaris measure the "average" transfer speed?
Does it use means or medians? If means are used, the delay- or time-related
stats tell you pretty much nothing (regardless of Squid version) because of a
huge heavy tails of delay distributions.

The correlation between median delays and user perception of "speed" is the
third, still unanswered, question!
