Hello all,

Just need some suggestions on how to increase the performance of our Squid
box. We want to *aggressively* cache pages in order to reduce the amount of
traffic going over our 128Kb upstream / 512Kb downstream link to the
Internet. I recently got a new PIII-750 MHz box with 512Mb of main memory,
1 x 10Gb IDE drive (which I plan to use for the system and log partition), 1
x 19Gb Cheetah SCSI drive, 2 x 9Gb Cheetah SCSI drive and 2 10Mbps NIC. I
plan to use this as a replacement for our old Squid box and would run on
RedHat Linux 6.2 with kernel 2.2.16 and possibly ReiserFS (not sure if I
could get it to work). I need some suggestions for cache_mem, numbers for
L1 and L2, and basically anything else that I should tweak in order to fully
maximize Squid including whether or not I should put all those SCSI drives
on one adapter or separate them unto 3 adapters (I have 2 spares just lying

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

M. Yu
