Ok for the definition of "round robin".
But from an user point of view, there has been only one request.
Fromy previous example, I entered only once the URL http:
But in the access log file, the URL appeared twice!!!
And worse, the 2 parents (non-ICP, but UDP echo) did the same work almost in

Therefore, I think I missed something very big in the config file !!!! But
what ?

Again thanks in advance.


FYI: the 2 non ICP parents are Integralis Websweeper proxies.

This is the definition of "round robin". The first request,
no matter what it is, goes to the first parent. The second
request goes to the second parent. The third request goes
to the first parent, etc...

It sounds like you want a hash-based selection, which Squid doesn't
currently have.
