Dear all,

        We are running squid v1.1.8 on a Digital AlphaServer with a
20-MBit/sec ATM connection to the internet.. Also after installing
the latest patches for Squid, we are seeing some fluctuation in the
performance of Squid. I also see a large numer of redirect processes
which are (although I increased them to 32) are all in use..
(Redirector Statistics in the cachemgr.cgi)

I should like to know:
- Will a redirect process only be used (and unavaliable) when initiating
  the call to the originating Web-site or will it be unavaliable till the
  end of the originating request??
- Are requests blocked when no redirect process is available ??
- Is there an optimum for the number of redirect processes...

Cheers, Henny Bekker
