Hey Patrice ,

Just try it ! Do you think that Squid is an MSProxy or something like that
You machine is too strong too handle all of your 500 clients . But the only
thinks that you must tell us is that how much is your bandwidth ?!
I am trying something like this machine may be worse than this one for a 4
MegaBit send and receive sattelite line for about 500 client that 200 of
them are dial-up and works prefectly .
Just try it ! and don't forget to tune your squid machine to use async-io
and reiserFS if you are using Linux or use Diskd on FreeBSD .

Subject: [squid-users] capacity of squid
Hi, i have implemented a squid (squid-2.3.STABLE4-1) on a server. It's a
power edge 2450 with 512Mb of Ram, a pentium III 733 processor, a 100Mb/s
network adapter, 2 disks in Raid1 (18 Gb Ultra3Wide SCSI), i need to serve
around 5000 clients on a country, that i want to know is how much tcp
connections a single squid can serve ? and if there is a limit, what happen
beyond this limit ? are the requests send directly, like a passthrough cache
