Well, my problem is: I have to go through a main parent which is, well,
somewhat unreliable. I used source_ping to tell squid to go directly to the
origin servers when the parent gets clogged up and become too slow to respond in
reasonable time - which happens almost regularly in night hours.
Now, does icmp allow me doing that ? What strategy does squid use to determine
access routes ?
