Again, thanks for the corrected link to Calamaris. Unfortunately, some of
the reports generated by Calamaris indicate that I might not understand
Squid as well as I thought.

Is there a good description of how to interpret the Calamaris reports?

The "Performance in 60 Minute Steps" report appears to offer management a
good idea of how much bandwidth is being saved. The problem is that the
column headings make it difficult to understand what is being reported.
The report has 6 columns that indicate activity in terms of kB/sec. I've
tried to find the combination of rates that add up to the volume of data
purportedly delivered to the client. No combination seems to make sense.

Any clues?
