Web Proxy Max connections

I've been fiddling with the Mikrotik web proxy. (v3)
I am only using Ram (2 gig) and getting a 10% hit rate.
It seems very good, did mikrotik make it or is it squid or something?

Also, Max connections is 5000.
I already have 2373 at this very second.
How come this is fixed so low?

How large HDD cache is possibe?

I used to use squid, but I like this on the one box.

Thanks :-)

I'd be very careful about putting the mikrotik proxy in a production environment. It will work for some time 3days up to 1 month even.. but I haven't had one sucessfully stay up yet.

Theres a thread detailing the problems this has caused for the hotspot system which currently relies on the proxy/web-server here:

I just found out today the hard way...

Box failed after 2 days....

I have disabled it.

Thanks :-)
