hey all

does anyone know if there are any patches, plans or views on enhancing the
granularity of the cache management options, i.e., adding a couple of controls
so we can crank up the cache hit ratio, manage page update (last-modified?)
checks, object aging control...
basically I've done a lot of work with Catapults (MS Proxy1.0, 2.0, ISA) and it
has fantastic controls on the cache... I can chase up the regedit guide if
anyone wants. MSP supports stuff like a global max age limit, heuristic
prefetch, global age extension (boost your hit ratio, supreme for dialup
connections)... heaps of stuff you can hax0r to make your cache into a major
accelerator (ok, with some small costs of old pages, dead pages etc, but it was
never a prob and you just hit reload anyway).

What's the feeling on this stuff? useful enough to put on the roadmap at some
stage?? Comments welcome!
