May I ask about the purpose of the proxy? Caching or ACL?

It is unclear to me how the more recent 'multiple instance' configuration
compares with that of 'SMP Scaling'. 

Is there a short and sweet description of pros and cons or is the multiple
instance simply the new way? The wiki pages vary in detail of implementation
but don't directly state any advantage of one over the other. Further
confusing me is my need to consider SSL Interception, ssl_crtd helpers and
ecap. To be clear, I'm not looking for configuration help. Just some advice
on which to pursue so I'm not rethinking the whole thing 6 months down the
Thank you for any help.
