I can't comment on throughput, but our network cache hit rate is very poor
(about 10% with a 50 MB cache). So we are getting little benefit from the
cache processing. If you have over 10-20 users, you should expect about
the same number.
I only keep it around because there is very little maintenance involved,
and the cache is invisible to the end users.
