Personally I'm keeping with the "cache" bit in the title and only trying 
to keep a subset of may data in Varnish. Then again my usage patterns are 
more concentrated.

I was wondering how large a cache people are managing to use without any

Special Features/Config: 
Total Cache Size: 

BTW: I'm still on the testing stage for various non-technical reasons.
