Ok for the Carp, I am not interesting in.
I know ICP, I read the FAQ on Cache Digest, but what is NetDB ?.

        HTCP is not implemented yet.

        CARP patch turns Squid into a CARP redirector so no other peer
        protocols (ICP, Cache Digests) are used with CARP. Consider
reading info that
        comes with the CARP patch to see if you need to use CARP.

        If you do not use CARP and configure Squid correctly, Squid will
use several
        algorithms: Cache Digests, NetDB, and ICP (in that order) in the
attempt to
        minimize network lookups ("do you have this object?" queries)
and delays
        ("selecting "closest" peers).
