We are researching alternatives to purchasing more throughput for our I1 connection, specifically web caching technologies. With a very competent in-house network systems crew, we tend to prefer open source solutions and tailor products as needed. At the moment we are interested in configuring WCCP on our handful of Nexus 7k's and using Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) running Squid as the caching engines. 1. Has anyone setup WCCP using non-Cisco caching engines? 2. Better alternatives to Squid for an open source caching application? 3. Can you provide some network statistics of your caching server in respect to number of estimated users? 4. Any other information you can think of? Thank you very much, -- Joe Marentette Network Engineer Washington University in St. Louis Network Services & Support 314-935-7031 jmarentette@wustl.edu ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
