When do I Upgrade

At present I use squid 1.1.20 on a Pentium 200Mhz 128MB RAM 9GB disk platform
is RH 5.1

Monitoring squid logs using cache-stats I can see that at present the server
processes about 350000 requests per day peaking during the day.

Is there any s/ware (benchmark or load analysis) available that can indicate
to me at what point I should upgrade this server. ie that the server
experiences such load at certain time that service degradation is experienced.

I plan implementing an "n" server cluster and need to estimate given traffic
volume predictions how many servers are required to give me max performance
without degradation.
