Just use squid with cache enabled..

Also if you are using squid.. then you can do some tweaks to improve its performance.

Here i am giving some tweak techniques .. Hope will help you!!!

1. Give your cache a separate partition. Make that partition reiserfs.. As reiserfs is best to deal with the small file (b'coz squid has to use several thousands of small files).
2. Increase RAM of your Server to 512 MB or more.. Now.. now in your squid.conf file  change
(Change the following lines only if you have 512 MB Ram)
Code: [Select]
cache_mem 384  
If you have 256 RAM then u can give 128 instead of 384.
3. Add the following lines in your squid.conf
Code: [Select]
half_closed_clients off
maximum_object_size 8192
You can use greater value in maximum_object_size if you are having a good amount of memory for cache.
4. Also in your squid.conf add the following line..
Code: [Select]
cache_store_log none
The above are few changes which will surely affect your browsing experience..

Also use about 20 gb or more disk parttion to be used as cache..

I am assuming that u have a processor with the speed more than 1 Ghz.

Well... just creat a separate partition or use any existing extra partition.. Now in squid.conf change the following lines. as per your requirements...
Code: [Select]
cache_dir ufs <ur current cache location>
To
Code: [Select]
cache_dir ufs <ur new cache location>
