You can use it from any web server (it asks for squid's host name). I think
you can use the 'client' which should be in your squid/bin. I don't know
exactly how to use it, but it has something to do with 'cache_object'
retrieving. The command should look like "client
cache_object://hostname/object" with object = "info|stat/utilization|...",
see your squid.conf (where the cachemgr_passwd is defined) for a complete
list of objects that can be retrieved.Anyone can help me for the exact
command line?
