- Yes.. This would be a nice feature..

        I would suggest a separate post processing program that takes the access log
files and writes a new file with the IP addresses changed to hostnames via
DNS lookups. No need to change squid at all. If you use code similar to
squid's IP address cache the load to the net should quite low.

        This saves any problems with performance degradation to squid by adding such
a feature.
