We have several idle Pentium III machines. We are free to use
them. In our department, we are thinking of clustering them to
provide a server to allow student machines to access web pages on these
We are thinking of using a clustered squid cache. I don't know
much. Is this a useful and valid use of squid? The cluster
would serve as an access point, and students who have similar projects
would probably access the same pages. Also, we are thinking of
the many times when the school network is down or badly lagging.
Can I request some ideas on this?
