Most likely not. There has not been any WCCPv2 patches contributed for
Squid-3.0 yet, and in addition Squid-3.0 is in feature freeze since long
back. But if a WCCPv2 patch is contributed it can be discussed if this can
make it into 3.0.

I would suggest no more than 32MB. You are already high on the memory
usage with a 100GB cache_dir.

Resitent Set Size, how much of the main memory the application is using.

It should climb pretty fast with the above settings. See the Squid FAQ on
memory usage.
