Using that method may lead to problems due to client caching the DNS entry..
They will be stuck using the same IP address each time until the DNS cache
entry expires.

has anyone experimented with load balancing switches into squid systems.
we are looking at a basic setup, where we hvae a load balancing switch
(unknown type yet). spreading the traffic over our four proxy servers, to
help reduce load on individual servers on our network. If anyone has any
ideas on how this would be best achievable it would be excellent :0
thankyou in advance
