Re: IPCHAINS Implementation

just use squid with a 100-500mb disk cache, and 64mb memory cache... though
these actually depend on the kind and number of users that you have.
Nowadays some sites even expire static pages and images, so it wud be
prudent to do some aggressive caching. Things that you might like to do wud
include blocking banner ads, putting a minimum time to expire for all the
non dynamic content (any url that does not have a question mark) By doing
this i saw significant improvements in performence...
