Thanks. We originally get this suggestion from our vendor (you know
this major player's name :-). Then we realized, if not running WCCP
between router and cache, then the cache is unable to throw back the
So a more generic question. Can squid, or any other cache engine
support by-pass function ? or "throw" back function when it find the
request is not cacheable ? All question under no-WCCP condition.
BTW, Is there any cache solution, other than Cisco, or Inktomi, that
you think working well under 500~1000M backgroud traffic ?
