You have to declare at least quick_abort_min, because if you don't,
the other two are ignored.

They are thresholds between three different kinds of handling the abort.
I couldn't explain it better than the comment preceding these options
in the squid.conf file, so I suggest you read that again, and come back
to the list afterwards with any specific questions that might remain.

Line #quick_abort_min -1 is a comment, so it really means nothing to Squid.
It's only purpose is to tell you, the gentle reader of squid.conf, that -1
is the default value for the quick_abort_min option. If you want to set
that option to the value 0, you can either uncomment it (ie. remove the
leading #, thus changing the comment into an actual statement) and change
the -1 into a 0, or add a new line quick_abort_min 0 behind it. Squid won't
mind which of these two possibilities you choose - it's just a matter of
