I'm looking at web caching proxy servers on behalf of my company.
Does anyone have any comments on available products or pointers to
sources of information such as independent product evaluations or
comparisions? (aside from the regular marketing blurb).
We are aware of the Netscape proxy server, TIS http-gw and the CERN
httpd, are there any other products (Unix/NT) out there that we should
Our intention is to use it as a proxy only (ie. relaying and supplying
requests for internal users -- there should be no outward-serving
functionality at all).
I'm interested in the following aspects :-
-- source code availability
-- any third party evaluations
-- remapping/blocking of certain URLs
-- content filtering (eg. Java)
-- support for SSL, SHTTP
-- secure logging
* performance considerations
-- cache configuration, consistency methods and tuning
-- number of users
-- throughput (requests/second)
-- architecture (Unix/NT)
-- support issues
-- level of transparency to users
-- ease of management
Thanks for any help, please can people send replies to me direct, I'll
post a summary.
