At one of the colleges in the East Midlands, the Network Manager is very
keen to install a web caching system, but in order to convince the college
senior management, he is looking for some facts and figures to show the
benefits of implementing a web caching system. The information he is looking
for is as follows and if anyone could help, it would be much appreciated.
1. He is looking for some actual statistics as to the reduction in
traffic that can be observed by installing a web caching system at an FE
2. He is also looking for an honest opinion as to how robust a Linux
based web caching system will be, as the college technical staff Linux
knowledge is rather limited.
