Hi all,

I am new to using squid.
We plan to run squid 2 proxy on a HW platform:
     AlphaServer 1200 5/533 4MB
     physical memory = 512.00 megabytes
     harddisk: plenty

the traffic is high: 600.000 hits, 4GB per day, number of concurrent accesses
can be 400-600.

My question and need are:

1. Can squid 2 handle such high demand traffic?
2. I appriciate very much any suggestions about the tuning of the default
    configuration for getting the best performance.

Thanks a lot in advance.
