When the origin server is too slow or too far away or needs to do too
much work to generate and/or check objects.

Also when you don't want each proxy to maintain its own duplicate cache
use a peer clustering protocol that prevents duplicates. They are listed
in the cache_peer documentation.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.1
