There's an article in the February 2002 edition of Sys Admin magazine
entitled 'How Web Cache Proxies Do and Don't Save on Internet Costs'
which appears to address the question you are posing. Its conclusion
suggests that you may be looking for the savings in the wrong place. They
use a custom perl script (downloadable) with GD that spits out graphical
results to support the article.
Drop me a note off-list if you'd like a copy of the article.
