By a modulo of the hash table size on the MD5 hashing of the request
method and URL.

The size of the hash table is determined by the cache size,
store_avg_object_size and store_objects_per_bucket.

If it has any effect on performance it is most likely very minimal.
Unless of course the parameter is set way out of normal operations

Having it small makes store lookups slightly faster, byt causes more CPU
time to be used for store maintenance.

Having it larger does the inverse, slower lookups but less CPU used for
