Sory, those particular options are not yet ported to either Squid-3 release.
Such failover detection is automatic behavior in all current Squid, but
I suspect the automatics are not fast enough if you are needing the
explicit settings.
The monitor* settings are marked for porting in 3.2 at some point.
please help out by sponsoring a developer to pick up the feature if its
very important for you.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE5 or 3.0.STABLE10
   Current Beta Squid
