Dear All,
I require your help and guidance regarding dynamic content caching. Following are the quries.
1. I am running squid in multiple instances mode (For Cache Disk Failure Protection). I dont think that it has any effect on internet object caching? I am confused that if connect methods are to be duplicate on both of the instances or i have configured it right specially in perspective of windows update.
2. As rewrite_url is not exported in new versions(version 3 and above) of squid is it still possible for squid to cache facebook/youtube videos? Have i configured it correctly? As i have seen no TCP_HIT for mp3,mp4 etc so i think caching is not done.
3. Please can u please check my configuration for windows updates? is there anything else which i have missed there? How could i assure that windows update is being cached properly?
Through studying online tutorials mailarchive support and best of my understanding i have configured squid as follows. Please peruse and guide.
