not so sure this is to increase performance, but rather to make sure you 
don't run out of network buffers (I guess if you run out of network 
buffers your performance will be shot :D :D)

BTW, that  value depends on YOUR specific needs...3K of nmbclusters is 
tiny for some setups (I've seen them set to 92 / 128K)

100+ connections in what period of time? for how long? what's your link 
like (fast, slow)? reverse proxy or normal squid server doing caching 
for users? (not a squid expert by any means, havent touched squid for 
years, but you'll have to give more info for anyone to help out).
