A "Proof of Concept" for using two Squids?

I believe those experiments were completed successfully proving that two
caches could talk to each other back in the 1980's.

What does that acronym mean to you?

Is that AV scanner being used by the parent Squid to test file data on
arrival before they are indexed and passed around?
  or is it being used to scan the cache directory and corrupt the parent
Squid index by removing or worse 'cleaning' cached files?


Please be using
