# WELCOME TO SQUID 2.7.STABLE9
# ----------------------------
#
# This is the default Squid configuration file. You may wish
# to look at the Squid home page (http://www.squid-cache.org/)
# for the FAQ and other documentation.
#
# The default Squid config file shows what the defaults for
# various options happen to be. If you don't need to change the
# default, you shouldn't uncomment the line. Doing so may cause
# run-time problems. In some cases "none" refers to no default
# setting at all, while in other cases it refers to a valid
# option - the comments for that keyword indicate if this is the
# case.
#
# Configuration options can be included using the "include" directive.
# Include takes a list of files to include. Quoting and wildcards is
# supported.
#
# For example,
#
# include /path/to/included/file/squid.acl.config
#
# Includes can be nested up to a hard-coded depth of 16 levels.
# This arbitrary restriction is to prevent recursive include references
# from causing Squid entering an infinite loop whilst trying to load
# configuration files.
# OPTIONS FOR AUTHENTICATION
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: auth_param
# This is used to define parameters for the various authentication
# schemes supported by Squid.
#
# format: auth_param scheme parameter [setting]
#
# The order in which authentication schemes are presented to the client is
# dependent on the order the scheme first appears in config file. IE
# has a bug (it's not RFC 2617 compliant) in that it will use the basic
# scheme if basic is the first entry presented, even if more secure
# schemes are presented. For now use the order in the recommended
# settings section below. If other browsers have difficulties (don't
# recognize the schemes offered even if you are using basic) either
# put basic first, or disable the other schemes (by commenting out their
# program entry).
#
# Once an authentication scheme is fully configured, it can only be
# shutdown by shutting squid down and restarting. Changes can be made on
# the fly and activated with a reconfigure. I.E. You can change to a
# different helper, but not unconfigure the helper completely.
#
# Please note that while this directive defines how Squid processes
# authentication it does not automatically activate authentication.
# To use authentication you must in addition make use of ACLs based
# on login name in http_access (proxy_auth, proxy_auth_regex or
# external with %LOGIN used in the format tag). The browser will be
# challenged for authentication on the first such acl encountered
# in http_access processing and will also be re-challenged for new
# login credentials if the request is being denied by a proxy_auth
# type acl.
#
# WARNING: authentication can't be used in a transparently intercepting
# proxy as the client then thinks it is talking to an origin server and
# not the proxy. This is a limitation of bending the TCP/IP protocol to
# transparently intercepting port 80, not a limitation in Squid.
#
# === Parameters for the basic scheme follow. ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external authenticator. Such a program
# reads a line containing "username password" and replies "OK" or
# "ERR" in an endless loop. "ERR" responses may optionally be followed
# by a error description available as %m in the returned error page.
#
# By default, the basic authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# If you want to use the traditional proxy authentication, jump over to
# the helpers/basic_auth/NCSA directory and type:
# % make
# % make install
#
# Then, set this line to something like
#
# auth_param basic program /opt/local/libexec/ncsa_auth /opt/local/etc/passwd
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn. If you start too few
# squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of credential
# verifications, slowing it down. When credential verifications are
# done via a (slow) network you are likely to need lots of
# authenticator processes.
# auth_param basic children 5
#
# "concurrency" numberofconcurrentrequests
# The number of concurrent requests/channels the helper supports.
# Changes the protocol used to include a channel number first on
# the request/response line, allowing multiple requests to be sent
# to the same helper in parallell without wating for the response.
# Must not be set unless it's known the helper supports this.
#
# "realm" realmstring
# Specifies the realm name which is to be reported to the client for
# the basic proxy authentication scheme (part of the text the user
# will see when prompted their username and password).
# auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#
# "credentialsttl" timetolive
# Specifies how long squid assumes an externally validated
# username:password pair is valid for - in other words how often the
# helper program is called for that user. Set this low to force
# revalidation with short lived passwords. Note that setting this high
# does not impact your susceptibility to replay attacks unless you are
# using an one-time password system (such as SecureID). If you are using
# such a system, you will be vulnerable to replay attacks unless you
# also use the max_user_ip ACL in an http_access rule.
# auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
#
# "casesensitive" on|off
# Specifies if usernames are case sensitive. Most user databases are
# case insensitive allowing the same username to be spelled using both
# lower and upper case letters, but some are case sensitive. This
# makes a big difference for user_max_ip ACL processing and similar.
# auth_param basic casesensitive off
#
# "blankpassword" on|off
# Specifies if blank passwords should be supported. Defaults to off
# as there is multiple authentication backends which handles blank
# passwords as "guest" access.
#
# === Parameters for the digest scheme follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external authenticator. Such a program
# reads a line containing "username":"realm" and replies with the
# appropriate H(A1) value hex encoded or ERR if the user (or his H(A1)
# hash) does not exists. See RFC 2616 for the definition of H(A1).
# "ERR" responses may optionally be followed by a error description
# available as %m in the returned error page.
#
# By default, the digest authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# If you want to use a digest authenticator, jump over to the
# helpers/digest_auth/ directory and choose the authenticator to use.
# It it's directory type
# % make
# % make install
#
# Then, set this line to something like
#
# auth_param digest program /opt/local/libexec/digest_auth_pw /opt/local/etc/digpass
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn. If you start too few
# squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of credential
# verifications, slowing it down. When credential verifications are
# done via a (slow) network you are likely to need lots of
# authenticator processes.
# auth_param digest children 5
#
# "concurrency" numberofconcurrentrequests
# The number of concurrent requests/channels the helper supports.
# Changes the protocol used to include a channel number first on
# the request/response line, allowing multiple requests to be sent
# to the same helper in parallell without wating for the response.
# Must not be set unless it's known the helper supports this.
#
# "realm" realmstring
# Specifies the realm name which is to be reported to the client for the
# digest proxy authentication scheme (part of the text the user will see
# when prompted their username and password).
# auth_param digest realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#
# "nonce_garbage_interval" timeinterval
# Specifies the interval that nonces that have been issued to clients are
# checked for validity.
# auth_param digest nonce_garbage_interval 5 minutes
#
# "nonce_max_duration" timeinterval
# Specifies the maximum length of time a given nonce will be valid for.
# auth_param digest nonce_max_duration 30 minutes
#
# "nonce_max_count" number
# Specifies the maximum number of times a given nonce can be used.
# auth_param digest nonce_max_count 50
#
# "nonce_strictness" on|off
# Determines if squid requires strict increment-by-1 behavior for nonce
# counts, or just incrementing (off - for use when useragents generate
# nonce counts that occasionally miss 1 (ie, 1,2,4,6)).
# auth_param digest nonce_strictness off
#
# "check_nonce_count" on|off
# This directive if set to off can disable the nonce count check
# completely to work around buggy digest qop implementations in certain
# mainstream browser versions. Default on to check the nonce count to
# protect from authentication replay attacks.
# auth_param digest check_nonce_count on
#
# "post_workaround" on|off
# This is a workaround to certain buggy browsers who sends an incorrect
# request digest in POST requests when reusing the same nonce as acquired
# earlier in response to a GET request.
# auth_param digest post_workaround off
#
# === NTLM scheme options follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external NTLM authenticator. Such a
# program participates in the NTLMSSP exchanges between Squid and the
# client and reads commands according to the Squid NTLMSSP helper
# protocol. See helpers/ntlm_auth/ for details. Recommended ntlm
# authenticator is ntlm_auth from Samba-3.X, but a number of other
# ntlm authenticators is available.
#
# By default, the ntlm authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# auth_param ntlm program /path/to/samba/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-ntlmssp
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn. If you start too few
# squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of credential
# verifications, slowing it down. When credential verifications are
# done via a (slow) network you are likely to need lots of
# authenticator processes.
# auth_param ntlm children 5
#
# "keep_alive" on|off
# This option enables the use of keep-alive on the initial
# authentication request. It has been reported some versions of MSIE
# have problems if this is enabled, but performance will be increased
# if enabled.
#
# auth_param ntlm keep_alive on
#
# === Negotiate scheme options follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external Negotiate authenticator. Such a
# program participates in the SPNEGO exchanges between Squid and the
# client and reads commands according to the Squid ntlmssp helper
# protocol. See helpers/ntlm_auth/ for details. Recommended SPNEGO
# authenticator is ntlm_auth from Samba-4.X.
#
# By default, the Negotiate authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# auth_param negotiate program /path/to/samba/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=gss-spnego
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn. If you start too few
# squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of credential
# verifications, slowing it down. When credential verifications are
# done via a (slow) network you are likely to need lots of
# authenticator processes.
# auth_param negotiate children 5
#
# "keep_alive" on|off
# If you experience problems with PUT/POST requests when using the
# Negotiate authentication scheme then you can try setting this to
# off. This will cause Squid to forcibly close the connection on
# the initial requests where the browser asks which schemes are
# supported by the proxy.
#
# auth_param negotiate keep_alive on
#
#Recommended minimum configuration per scheme:
#auth_param negotiate program <uncomment and complete this line to activate>
#auth_param negotiate children 5
#auth_param negotiate keep_alive on
#auth_param ntlm program <uncomment and complete this line to activate>
#auth_param ntlm children 5
#auth_param ntlm keep_alive on
#auth_param digest program <uncomment and complete this line>
#auth_param digest children 5

# TAG: authenticate_cache_garbage_interval
# The time period between garbage collection across the username cache.
# This is a tradeoff between memory utilization (long intervals - say
# 2 days) and CPU (short intervals - say 1 minute). Only change if you
# have good reason to.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_cache_garbage_interval 1 hour
# TAG: authenticate_ttl
# The time a user & their credentials stay in the logged in user cache
# since their last request. When the garbage interval passes, all user
# credentials that have passed their TTL are removed from memory.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_ttl 1 hour
# TAG: authenticate_ip_ttl
# If you use proxy authentication and the 'max_user_ip' ACL, this
# directive controls how long Squid remembers the IP addresses
# associated with each user. Use a small value (e.g., 60 seconds) if
# your users might change addresses quickly, as is the case with
# dialups. You might be safe using a larger value (e.g., 2 hours) in a
# corporate LAN environment with relatively static address assignments.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_ip_ttl 0 seconds
# TAG: authenticate_ip_shortcircuit_ttl
# Cache authentication credentials per client IP address for this
# long. Default is 0 seconds (disabled).
#
# See also authenticate_ip_shortcircuit_access directive.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_ip_shortcircuit_ttl 0 seconds
# ACCESS CONTROLS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: external_acl_type
# This option defines external acl classes using a helper program to
# look up the status
#
# external_acl_type name [options] FORMAT.. /path/to/helper [helper arguments..]
#
# Options:
#
# ttl=n TTL in seconds for cached results (defaults to 3600
# for 1 hour)
# negative_ttl=n
# TTL for cached negative lookups (default same
# as ttl)
# children=n number of processes spawn to service external acl
# lookups of this type. (default 5).
# concurrency=n concurrency level per process. Only used with helpers
# capable of processing more than one query at a time.
# Note: see compatibility note below
# cache=n result cache size, 0 is unbounded (default)
# grace= Percentage remaining of TTL where a refresh of a
# cached entry should be initiated without needing to
# wait for a new reply. (default 0 for no grace period)
# protocol=2.5 Compatibility mode for Squid-2.5 external acl helpers
#
# FORMAT specifications
#
# %LOGIN Authenticated user login name
# %EXT_USER Username from external acl
# %IDENT Ident user name
# %SRC Client IP
# %SRCPORT Client source port
# %URI Requested URI
# %DST Requested host
# %PROTO Requested protocol
# %PORT Requested port
# %METHOD Request method
# %MYADDR Squid interface address
# %MYPORT Squid http_port number
# %PATH Requested URL-path (including query-string if any)
# %USER_CERT SSL User certificate in PEM format
# %USER_CERTCHAIN SSL User certificate chain in PEM format
# %USER_CERT_xx SSL User certificate subject attribute xx
# %USER_CA_xx SSL User certificate issuer attribute xx
# %{Header} HTTP request header "Header"
# %{Hdr:member} HTTP request header "Hdr" list member "member"
# %{Hdr:;member}
# HTTP request header list member using ; as
# list separator. ; can be any non-alphanumeric
# character.
# %ACL The ACL name
# %DATA The ACL arguments. If not used then any arguments
# is automatically added at the end
#
# In addition to the above, any string specified in the referencing
# acl will also be included in the helper request line, after the
# specified formats (see the "acl external" directive)
#
# The helper receives lines per the above format specification,
# and returns lines starting with OK or ERR indicating the validity
# of the request and optionally followed by additional keywords with
# more details.
#
# General result syntax:
#
# OK/ERR keyword=value ...
#
# Defined keywords:
#
# user= The users name (login also understood)
# password= The users password (for PROXYPASS login= cache_peer)
# message= Error message or similar used as %o in error messages
# (error also understood)
# log= String to be logged in access.log. Available as
# %ea in logformat specifications
#
# If protocol=3.0 (the default) then URL escaping is used to protect
# each value in both requests and responses.
#
# If using protocol=2.5 then all values need to be enclosed in quotes
# if they may contain whitespace, or the whitespace escaped using \.
# And quotes or \ characters within the keyword value must be \ escaped.
#
# When using the concurrency= option the protocol is changed by
# introducing a query channel tag infront of the request/response.
# The query channel tag is a number between 0 and concurrency-1.
#
# Compatibility Note: The children= option was named concurrency= in
# Squid-2.5.STABLE3 and earlier, and was accepted as an alias for the
# duration of the Squid-2.5 releases to keep compatibility. However,
# the meaning of concurrency= option has changed in Squid-2.6 to match
# that of Squid-3 and the old syntax no longer works.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: acl
# Defining an Access List
#
# Every access list definition must begin with an aclname and acltype,
# followed by either type-specific arguments or a quoted filename that
# they are read from.
#
# acl aclname acltype argument ...
# acl aclname acltype "file" ...
#
# when using "file", the file should contain one item per line.
#
# By default, regular expressions are CASE-SENSITIVE. To make
# them case-insensitive, use the -i option.
#
# acl aclname src ip-address/netmask ... (clients IP address)
# acl aclname src addr1-addr2/netmask ... (range of addresses)
# acl aclname dst ip-address/netmask ... (URL host's IP address)
# acl aclname myip ip-address/netmask ... (local socket IP address)
#
# acl aclname arp mac-address ... (xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx notation)
# # The arp ACL requires the special configure option --enable-arp-acl.
# # Furthermore, the arp ACL code is not portable to all operating systems.
# # It works on Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD and some other *BSD variants.
# #
# # NOTE: Squid can only determine the MAC address for clients that are on
# # the same subnet. If the client is on a different subnet, then Squid cannot
# # find out its MAC address.
#
# acl aclname srcdomain .foo.com ... # reverse lookup, client IP
# acl aclname dstdomain .foo.com ... # Destination server from URL
# acl aclname srcdom_regex [-i] xxx ... # regex matching client name
# acl aclname dstdom_regex [-i] xxx ... # regex matching server
# # For dstdomain and dstdom_regex a reverse lookup is tried if a IP
# # based URL is used and no match is found. The name "none" is used
# # if the reverse lookup fails.
#
# acl aclname time [day-abbrevs] [h1:m1-h2:m2]
# # day-abbrevs:
# # S - Sunday
# # M - Monday
# # T - Tuesday
# # W - Wednesday
# # H - Thursday
# # F - Friday
# # A - Saturday
# # h1:m1 must be less than h2:m2
# acl aclname url_regex [-i] ^http:// ... # regex matching on whole URL
# acl aclname urlpath_regex [-i] \.gif$ ... # regex matching on URL path
# acl aclname urllogin [-i] [^a-zA-Z0-9] ... # regex matching on URL login field
# acl aclname port 80 70 21 ...
# acl aclname port 0-1024 ... # ranges allowed
# acl aclname myport 3128 ... # (local socket TCP port)
# acl aclname myportname 3128 ... # http(s)_port name
# acl aclname proto HTTP FTP ...
# acl aclname method GET POST ...
# acl aclname browser [-i] regexp ...
# # pattern match on User-Agent header (see also req_header below)
# acl aclname referer_regex [-i] regexp ...
# # pattern match on Referer header
# # Referer is highly unreliable, so use with care
# acl aclname ident username ...
# acl aclname ident_regex [-i] pattern ...
# # string match on ident output.
# # use REQUIRED to accept any non-null ident.
# acl aclname src_as number ...
# acl aclname dst_as number ...
# # Except for access control, AS numbers can be used for
# # routing of requests to specific caches. Here's an
# # example for routing all requests for AS#1241 and only
# # those to mycache.mydomain.net:
# # acl asexample dst_as 1241
# # cache_peer_access mycache.mydomain.net allow asexample
# # cache_peer_access mycache_mydomain.net deny all
#
# acl aclname proxy_auth [-i] username ...
# acl aclname proxy_auth_regex [-i] pattern ...
# # list of valid usernames
# # use REQUIRED to accept any valid username.
# #
# # NOTE: when a Proxy-Authentication header is sent but it is not
# # needed during ACL checking the username is NOT logged
# # in access.log.
# #
# # NOTE: proxy_auth requires a EXTERNAL authentication program
# # to check username/password combinations (see
# # auth_param directive).
# #
# # NOTE: proxy_auth can't be used in a transparent proxy as
# # the browser needs to be configured for using a proxy in order
# # to respond to proxy authentication.
#
# acl aclname snmp_community string ...
# # A community string to limit access to your SNMP Agent
# # Example:
# #
# # acl snmppublic snmp_community public
#
# acl aclname maxconn number
# # This will be matched when the client's IP address has
# # more than <number> HTTP connections established.
#
# acl aclname max_user_ip [-s] number
# # This will be matched when the user attempts to log in from more
# # than <number> different ip addresses. The authenticate_ip_ttl
# # parameter controls the timeout on the ip entries.
# # If -s is specified the limit is strict, denying browsing
# # from any further IP addresses until the ttl has expired. Without
# # -s Squid will just annoy the user by "randomly" denying requests.
# # (the counter is reset each time the limit is reached and a
# # request is denied)
# # NOTE: in acceleration mode or where there is mesh of child proxies,
# # clients may appear to come from multiple addresses if they are
# # going through proxy farms, so a limit of 1 may cause user problems.
#
# acl aclname req_mime_type mime-type ...
# # regex match against the mime type of the request generated
# # by the client. Can be used to detect file upload or some
# # types HTTP tunneling requests.
# # NOTE: This does NOT match the reply. You cannot use this
# # to match the returned file type.
#
# acl aclname req_header header-name [-i] any\.regex\.here
# # regex match against any of the known request headers. May be
# # thought of as a superset of "browser", "referer" and "mime-type"
# # ACLs.
#
# acl aclname rep_mime_type mime-type ...
# # regex match against the mime type of the reply received by
# # squid. Can be used to detect file download or some
# # types HTTP tunneling requests.
# # NOTE: This has no effect in http_access rules. It only has
# # effect in rules that affect the reply data stream such as
# # http_reply_access.
#
# acl aclname rep_header header-name [-i] any\.regex\.here
# # regex match against any of the known reply headers. May be
# # thought of as a superset of "browser", "referer" and "mime-type"
# # ACLs.
# #
# # Example:
# #
# # acl many_spaces rep_header Content-Disposition -i [[:space:]]{3,}
#
# acl aclname external class_name [arguments...]
# # external ACL lookup via a helper class defined by the
# # external_acl_type directive.
#
# acl aclname urlgroup group1 ...
# # match against the urlgroup as indicated by redirectors
#
# acl aclname user_cert attribute values...
# # match against attributes in a user SSL certificate
# # attribute is one of DN/C/O/CN/L/ST
#
# acl aclname ca_cert attribute values...
# # match against attributes a users issuing CA SSL certificate
# # attribute is one of DN/C/O/CN/L/ST
#
# acl aclname ext_user username ...
# acl aclname ext_user_regex [-i] pattern ...
# # string match on username returned by external acl helper
# # use REQUIRED to accept any non-null user name.
#
#Examples:
#acl macaddress arp 09:00:2b:23:45:67
#acl myexample dst_as 1241
#acl password proxy_auth REQUIRED
#acl fileupload req_mime_type -i ^multipart/form-data$

#
# acl localclients src 172.16.0.0/16
# miss_access allow localclients
# miss_access deny !localclients
#
# This means only your local clients are allowed to fetch

# TAG: ident_lookup_access
# A list of ACL elements which, if matched, cause an ident
# (RFC931) lookup to be performed for this request. For
# example, you might choose to always perform ident lookups
# for your main multi-user Unix boxes, but not for your Macs
# and PCs. By default, ident lookups are not performed for
# any requests.
#
# To enable ident lookups for specific client addresses, you
# can follow this example:
#
# acl ident_aware_hosts src 198.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
# ident_lookup_access allow ident_aware_hosts
# ident_lookup_access deny all
#
# Only src type ACL checks are fully supported. A src_domain
# ACL might work at times, but it will not always provide
# the correct result.
#
#Default:
# ident_lookup_access deny all
# TAG: reply_body_max_size bytes deny acl acl...
# This option specifies the maximum size of a reply body in bytes.
# It can be used to prevent users from downloading very large files,
# such as MP3's and movies. When the reply headers are received,
# the reply_body_max_size lines are processed, and the first line with
# a result of "deny" is used as the maximum body size for this reply.
# This size is checked twice. First when we get the reply headers,
# we check the content-length value. If the content length value exists
# and is larger than the allowed size, the request is denied and the
# user receives an error message that says "the request or reply
# is too large." If there is no content-length, and the reply
# size exceeds this limit, the client's connection is just closed
# and they will receive a partial reply.
#
# WARNING: downstream caches probably can not detect a partial reply
# if there is no content-length header, so they will cache
# partial responses and give them out as hits. You should NOT
# use this option if you have downstream caches.
#
# If you set this parameter to zero (the default), there will be
# no limit imposed.
#
#Default:

# OPTIONS FOR X-Forwarded-For
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: follow_x_forwarded_for
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DFOLLOW_X_FORWARDED_FOR option
#
# Allowing or Denying the X-Forwarded-For header to be followed to
# find the original source of a request.
#
# Requests may pass through a chain of several other proxies
# before reaching us. The X-Forwarded-For header will contain a
# comma-separated list of the IP addresses in the chain, with the
# rightmost address being the most recent.
#
# If a request reaches us from a source that is allowed by this
# configuration item, then we consult the X-Forwarded-For header
# to see where that host received the request from. If the
# X-Forwarded-For header contains multiple addresses, and if
# acl_uses_indirect_client is on, then we continue backtracking
# until we reach an address for which we are not allowed to
# follow the X-Forwarded-For header, or until we reach the first
# address in the list. (If acl_uses_indirect_client is off, then
# it's impossible to backtrack through more than one level of
# X-Forwarded-For addresses.)
#
# The end result of this process is an IP address that we will
# refer to as the indirect client address. This address may
# be treated as the client address for access control, delay
# pools and logging, depending on the acl_uses_indirect_client,
# delay_pool_uses_indirect_client and log_uses_indirect_client
# options.
#
# SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS:
#
# Any host for which we follow the X-Forwarded-For header
# can place incorrect information in the header, and Squid
# will use the incorrect information as if it were the
# source address of the request. This may enable remote
# hosts to bypass any access control restrictions that are
# based on the client's source addresses.
#
# For example:
#
# acl localhost src 127.0.0.1
# acl my_other_proxy srcdomain .proxy.example.com
# follow_x_forwarded_for allow localhost
# follow_x_forwarded_for allow my_other_proxy

# NETWORK OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: http_port
# Usage: port [options]
# hostname:port [options]
# 1.2.3.4:port [options]
#
# The socket addresses where Squid will listen for HTTP client
# requests. You may specify multiple socket addresses.
# There are three forms: port alone, hostname with port, and
# IP address with port. If you specify a hostname or IP
# address, Squid binds the socket to that specific
# address. This replaces the old 'tcp_incoming_address'
# option. Most likely, you do not need to bind to a specific
# address, so you can use the port number alone.
#
# If you are running Squid in accelerator mode, you
# probably want to listen on port 80 also, or instead.
#
# The -I command line option will override the *first* port
# specified here.
#
# You may specify multiple socket addresses on multiple lines.
#
# Options:
#
# transparent Support for transparent interception of
# outgoing requests without browser settings.
#
# tproxy Support Linux TPROXY for spoofing outgoing
# connections using the client IP address.
#
# accel Accelerator mode. See also the related vhost,
# vport and defaultsite directives.
#
# defaultsite=domainname
# What to use for the Host: header if it is not present
# in a request. Determines what site (not origin server)
# accelerators should consider the default.
# Defaults to visible_hostname:port if not set
# May be combined with vport=NN to override the port number.
# Implies accel.
#
# vhost Accelerator mode using Host header for virtual
# domain support. Implies accel.
#
# vport Accelerator with IP based virtual host support.
# Implies accel.
#
# vport=NN As above, but uses specified port number rather
# than the http_port number. Implies accel.
#
# allow-direct Allow direct forwarding in accelerator mode. Normally
# accelerated requests is denied direct forwarding as it
# never_direct was used.
#
# urlgroup= Default urlgroup to mark requests with (see
# also acl urlgroup and url_rewrite_program)
#
# protocol= Protocol to reconstruct accelerated requests with.

# authentication (NTLM, Negotiate and Kerberos)
#
# act-as-origin
# Act is if this Squid is the origin server.
# This currently means generate own Date: and
# Expires: headers. Implies accel.
#
# http11 Enables HTTP/1.1 support to clients. The HTTP/1.1
# support is still incomplete with an internal HTTP/1.0
# hop, but should work with most clients. The main
# HTTP/1.1 features missing due to this is forwarding
# of requests using chunked transfer encoding (results
# in 411) and forwarding of 1xx responses (silently
# dropped)
#
# name= Specifies a internal name for the port. Defaults to
# the port specification (port or addr:port)
#
# tcpkeepalive[=idle,interval,timeout]
# Enable TCP keepalive probes of idle connections
# idle is the initial time before TCP starts probing
# the connection, interval how often to probe, and
# timeout the time before giving up.
#
# If you run Squid on a dual-homed machine with an internal
# and an external interface we recommend you to specify the
# internal address:port in http_port. This way Squid will only be
# visible on the internal address.

#
# proxy-port: The port number where the cache listens for proxy

#
# use 'proxy-only' to specify objects fetched
# from this cache should not be saved locally.
#
# use 'weight=n' to affect the selection of a peer
# during any weighted peer-selection mechanisms.
# The weight must be an integer; default is 1,
# larger weights are favored more.
# This option does not affect parent selection if a peering
# protocol is not in use.
#
# use 'ttl=n' to specify a IP multicast TTL to use
# when sending an ICP queries to this address.
# Only useful when sending to a multicast group.
# Because we don't accept ICP replies from random
# hosts, you must configure other group members as
# peers with the 'multicast-responder' option below.
#
# use 'no-query' to NOT send ICP queries to this
# neighbor.
#
# use 'default' if this is a parent cache which can
# be used as a "last-resort" if a peer cannot be located
# by any of the peer-selection mechanisms.
# If specified more than once, only the first is used.
#
# use 'round-robin' to define a set of parents which
# should be used in a round-robin fashion in the
# absence of any ICP queries.
#
# use 'carp' to define a set of parents which should
# be used as a CARP array. The requests will be
# distributed among the parents based on the CARP load
# balancing hash function based on their weight.
#
# 'multicast-responder' indicates the named peer
# is a member of a multicast group. ICP queries will
# not be sent directly to the peer, but ICP replies
# will be accepted from it.
#
# the 'multicast-siblings' option is meant to be used
# only for cache peers of type "multicast". It instructs
# Squid that ALL members of this multicast group have
# "sibling" relationship with it, not "parent". This is
# an optimization that avoids useless multicast queries
# to a multicast group when the requested object would
# be fetched only from a "parent" cache, anyway. It's
# useful, e.g., when configuring a pool of redundant
# Squid proxies, being members of the same
# multicast group.
#
# 'closest-only' indicates that, for ICP_OP_MISS
# replies, we'll only forward CLOSEST_PARENT_MISSes
# and never FIRST_PARENT_MISSes.
#
# use 'no-digest' to NOT request cache digests from
# this neighbor.
#
# 'no-netdb-exchange' disables requesting ICMP
# RTT database (NetDB) from the neighbor.
#
# use 'no-delay' to prevent access to this neighbor
# from influencing the delay pools.
#
# use 'login=user:password' if this is a personal/workgroup
# proxy and your parent requires proxy authentication.
# Note: The string can include URL escapes (i.e. %20 for
# spaces). This also means % must be written as %%.
#
# use 'login=PASS' if users must authenticate against
# the upstream proxy or in the case of a reverse proxy
# configuration, the origin web server. This will pass
# the users credentials as they are to the peer.
# Note: To combine this with local authentication the Basic
# authentication scheme must be used, and both servers must
# share the same user database as HTTP only allows for
# a single login (one for proxy, one for origin server).
# Also be warned this will expose your users proxy
# password to the peer. USE WITH CAUTION
#
# use 'login=*:password' to pass the username to the
# upstream cache, but with a fixed password. This is meant
# to be used when the peer is in another administrative
# domain, but it is still needed to identify each user.
# The star can optionally be followed by some extra
# information which is added to the username. This can
# be used to identify this proxy to the peer, similar to
# the login=username:password option above.
#
# use 'connect-timeout=nn' to specify a peer
# specific connect timeout (also see the
# peer_connect_timeout directive)
#
# use 'digest-url=url' to tell Squid to fetch the cache
# digest (if digests are enabled) for this host from
# the specified URL rather than the Squid default
# location.
#
# use 'allow-miss' to disable Squid's use of only-if-cached
# when forwarding requests to siblings. This is primarily
# useful when icp_hit_stale is used by the sibling. To
# extensive use of this option may result in forwarding
# loops, and you should avoid having two-way peerings
# with this option. (for example to deny peer usage on
# requests from peer by denying cache_peer_access if the
# source is a peer)
#
# use 'max-conn=n' to limit the amount of connections Squid
# may open to this peer.
#
# use 'htcp' to send HTCP, instead of ICP, queries
# to the neighbor. You probably also want to
# set the "icp port" to 4827 instead of 3130.
# You must also allow this Squid htcp_access and
# http_access in the peer Squid configuration.
#
# use 'htcp-oldsquid' to send HTCP to old Squid versions
# You must also allow this Squid htcp_access and
# http_access in the peer Squid configuration.
#
# 'originserver' causes this parent peer to be contacted as
# a origin server. Meant to be used in accelerator setups.
#
# use 'userhash' to load-balance amongst a set of parents
# based on the client proxy_auth or ident username.
#
# use 'sourcehash' to load-balance amongst a set of parents
# based on the client source ip.
#
# use 'name=xxx' if you have multiple peers on the same
# host but different ports. This name can be used to
# differentiate the peers in cache_peer_access and similar
# directives.
#
# use 'monitorurl=url' to have periodically request a given
# URL from the peer, and only consider the peer as alive
# if this monitoring is successful (default none)
#
# use 'monitorsize=min[-max]' to limit the size range of
# 'monitorurl' replies considered valid. Defaults to 0 to
# accept any size replies as valid.
#
# use 'monitorinterval=seconds' to change frequency of
# how often the peer is monitored with 'monitorurl'
# (default 300 for a 5 minute interval). If set to 0
# then monitoring is disabled even if a URL is defined.
#
# use 'monitortimeout=seconds' to change the timeout of
# 'monitorurl'. Defaults to 'monitorinterval'.

#Default:
# none
# TAG: cache_peer_domain
# Use to limit the domains for which a neighbor cache will be
# queried. Usage:
#
# cache_peer_domain cache-host domain [domain ...]
# cache_peer_domain cache-host !domain
#
# For example, specifying
#
# cache_peer_domain parent.foo.net .edu
#
# has the effect such that UDP query packets are sent to
# 'bigserver' only when the requested object exists on a
# server in the .edu domain. Prefixing the domain name
# with '!' means the cache will be queried for objects
# NOT in that domain.
#
# NOTE: * Any number of domains may be given for a cache-host,
# either on the same or separate lines.
# * When multiple domains are given for a particular
# cache-host, the first matched domain is applied.
# * Cache hosts with no domain restrictions are queried
# for all requests.
# * There are no defaults.
# * There is also a 'cache_peer_access' tag in the ACL
# section.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: cache_peer_access
# Similar to 'cache_peer_domain' but provides more flexibility by
# using ACL elements.
#
# cache_peer_access cache-host allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
# The syntax is identical to 'http_access' and the other lists of
# ACL elements. See the comments for 'http_access' below, or
# the Squid FAQ (http://www.squid-cache.org/FAQ/FAQ-10.html).
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: neighbor_type_domain
# usage: neighbor_type_domain neighbor parent|sibling domain domain ...
#
# Modifying the neighbor type for specific domains is now
# possible. You can treat some domains differently than the the
# default neighbor type specified on the 'cache_peer' line.
# Normally it should only be necessary to list domains which
# should be treated differently because the default neighbor type
# applies for hostnames which do not match domains listed here.
#
#EXAMPLE:
# cache_peer cache.foo.org parent 3128 3130
# neighbor_type_domain cache.foo.org sibling .com .net
# neighbor_type_domain cache.foo.org sibling .au .de
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: dead_peer_timeout (seconds)
# This controls how long Squid waits to declare a peer cache
# as "dead." If there are no ICP replies received in this
# amount of time, Squid will declare the peer dead and not
# expect to receive any further ICP replies. However, it
# continues to send ICP queries, and will mark the peer as
# alive upon receipt of the first subsequent ICP reply.
#
# This timeout also affects when Squid expects to receive ICP
# replies from peers. If more than 'dead_peer' seconds have
# passed since the last ICP reply was received, Squid will not
# expect to receive an ICP reply on the next query. Thus, if
# your time between requests is greater than this timeout, you
# will see a lot of requests sent DIRECT to origin servers
# instead of to your parents.
#
#Default:
# dead_peer_timeout 10 seconds
# TAG: hierarchy_stoplist
# A list of words which, if found in a URL, cause the object to
# be handled directly by this cache. In other words, use this
# to not query neighbor caches for certain objects. You may
# list this option multiple times. Note: never_direct overrides
# this option.
#We recommend you to use at least the following line.

# MEMORY CACHE OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache_mem (bytes)
# NOTE: THIS PARAMETER DOES NOT SPECIFY THE MAXIMUM PROCESS SIZE.
# IT ONLY PLACES A LIMIT ON HOW MUCH ADDITIONAL MEMORY SQUID WILL
# USE AS A MEMORY CACHE OF OBJECTS. SQUID USES MEMORY FOR OTHER
# THINGS AS WELL. SEE THE SQUID FAQ SECTION 8 FOR DETAILS.
#
# 'cache_mem' specifies the ideal amount of memory to be used
# for:
# * In-Transit objects
# * Hot Objects
# * Negative-Cached objects
#
# Data for these objects are stored in 4 KB blocks. This
# parameter specifies the ideal upper limit on the total size of
# 4 KB blocks allocated. In-Transit objects take the highest
# priority.
#
# In-transit objects have priority over the others. When
# additional space is needed for incoming data, negative-cached
# and hot objects will be released. In other words, the
# negative-cached and hot objects will fill up any unused space
# not needed for in-transit objects.
#
# If circumstances require, this limit will be exceeded.
# Specifically, if your incoming request rate requires more than
# 'cache_mem' of memory to hold in-transit objects, Squid will
# exceed this limit to satisfy the new requests. When the load
# decreases, blocks will be freed until the high-water mark is
# reached. Thereafter, blocks will be used to store hot
# objects.
#
#Default:
# cache_mem 8 MB
# TAG: maximum_object_size_in_memory (bytes)
# Objects greater than this size will not be attempted to kept in
# the memory cache. This should be set high enough to keep objects
# accessed frequently in memory to improve performance whilst low
# enough to keep larger objects from hoarding cache_mem.
#
#Default:
# maximum_object_size_in_memory 8 KB
# TAG: memory_replacement_policy
# The memory replacement policy parameter determines which
# objects are purged from memory when memory space is needed.
#
# See cache_replacement_policy for details.
#
#Default:
# memory_replacement_policy lru
# DISK CACHE OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache_replacement_policy
# The cache replacement policy parameter determines which
# objects are evicted (replaced) when disk space is needed.
#
# lru : Squid's original list based LRU policy
# heap GDSF : Greedy-Dual Size Frequency
# heap LFUDA: Least Frequently Used with Dynamic Aging
# heap LRU : LRU policy implemented using a heap
#
# Applies to any cache_dir lines listed below this.
#
# The LRU policies keeps recently referenced objects.
#
# The heap GDSF policy optimizes object hit rate by keeping smaller
# popular objects in cache so it has a better chance of getting a
# hit. It achieves a lower byte hit rate than LFUDA though since
# it evicts larger (possibly popular) objects.
#
# The heap LFUDA policy keeps popular objects in cache regardless of
# their size and thus optimizes byte hit rate at the expense of
# hit rate since one large, popular object will prevent many
# smaller, slightly less popular objects from being cached.
#
# Both policies utilize a dynamic aging mechanism that prevents
# cache pollution that can otherwise occur with frequency-based
# replacement policies.
#
# NOTE: if using the LFUDA replacement policy you should increase
# the value of maximum_object_size above its default of 4096 KB to
# to maximize the potential byte hit rate improvement of LFUDA.
#
# For more information about the GDSF and LFUDA cache replacement
# policies see http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/1999/HPL-1999-69.html

#Default:
cache_replacement_policy heap LFUDA
# TAG: cache_dir
# Usage:
#
# cache_dir Type Directory-Name Fs-specific-data [options]
#
# You can specify multiple cache_dir lines to spread the
# cache among different disk partitions.
#
# Type specifies the kind of storage system to use. Only "ufs"
# is built by default. To enable any of the other storage systems
# see the --enable-storeio configure option.
#
# 'Directory' is a top-level directory where cache swap
# files will be stored. If you want to use an entire disk
# for caching, this can be the mount-point directory.
# The directory must exist and be writable by the Squid
# process. Squid will NOT create this directory for you.
# Only using COSS, a raw disk device or a stripe file can
# be specified, but the configuration of the "cache_swap_log"
# tag is mandatory.
#
# The ufs store type:
#
# "ufs" is the old well-known Squid storage format that has always
# been there.
#
# cache_dir ufs Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options]
#
# 'Mbytes' is the amount of disk space (MB) to use under this
# directory. The default is 100 MB. Change this to suit your
# configuration. Do NOT put the size of your disk drive here.
# Instead, if you want Squid to use the entire disk drive,
# subtract 20% and use that value.
#
# 'Level-1' is the number of first-level subdirectories which
# will be created under the 'Directory'. The default is 16.
#
# 'Level-2' is the number of second-level subdirectories which
# will be created under each first-level directory. The default
# is 256.
#
# The aufs store type:
#
# "aufs" uses the same storage format as "ufs", utilizing
# POSIX-threads to avoid blocking the main Squid process on
# disk-I/O. This was formerly known in Squid as async-io.
#
# cache_dir aufs Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options]
#
# see argument descriptions under ufs above
#
# The diskd store type:
#
# "diskd" uses the same storage format as "ufs", utilizing a
# separate process to avoid blocking the main Squid process on
# disk-I/O.
#
# cache_dir diskd Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options] [Q1=n] [Q2=n]
#
# see argument descriptions under ufs above
#
# Q1 specifies the number of unacknowledged I/O requests when Squid
# stops opening new files. If this many messages are in the queues,
# Squid won't open new files. Default is 64
#
# Q2 specifies the number of unacknowledged messages when Squid
# starts blocking. If this many messages are in the queues,
# Squid blocks until it receives some replies. Default is 72
#
# When Q1 < Q2 (the default), the cache directory is optimized
# for lower response time at the expense of a decrease in hit
# ratio. If Q1 > Q2, the cache directory is optimized for
# higher hit ratio at the expense of an increase in response
# time.
#
# The coss store type:
#
# block-size=n defines the "block size" for COSS cache_dir's.
# Squid uses file numbers as block numbers. Since file numbers
# are limited to 24 bits, the block size determines the maximum
# size of the COSS partition. The default is 512 bytes, which
# leads to a maximum cache_dir size of 512<<24, or 8 GB. Note
# you should not change the COSS block size after Squid
# has written some objects to the cache_dir.
#
# overwrite-percent=n defines the percentage of disk that COSS
# must write to before a given object will be moved to the
# current stripe. A value of "n" closer to 100 will cause COSS
# to waste less disk space by having multiple copies of an object
# on disk, but will increase the chances of overwriting a popular
# object as COSS overwrites stripes. A value of "n" close to 0
# will cause COSS to keep all current objects in the current COSS
# stripe at the expense of the hit rate. The default value of 50
# will allow any given object to be stored on disk a maximum of
# 2 times.
#
# max-stripe-waste=n defines the maximum amount of space that COSS
# will waste in a given stripe (in bytes). When COSS writes data
# to disk, it will potentially waste up to "max-size" worth of disk
# space for each 1MB of data written. If "max-size" is set to a
# large value (ie >256k), this could potentially result in large
# amounts of wasted disk space. Setting this value to a lower value
# (ie 64k or 32k) will result in a COSS disk refusing to cache
# larger objects until the COSS stripe has been filled to within
# "max-stripe-waste" of the maximum size (1MB).
#
# membufs=n defines the number of "memory-only" stripes that COSS
# will use. When an cache hit is performed on a COSS stripe before
# COSS has reached the overwrite-percent value for that object,
# COSS will use a series of memory buffers to hold the object in
# while the data is sent to the client. This will define the maximum
# number of memory-only buffers that COSS will use. The default value
# is 10, which will use a maximum of 10MB of memory for buffers.
#
# maxfullbufs=n defines the maximum number of stripes a COSS partition
# will have in memory waiting to be freed (either because the disk is
# under load and the stripe is unwritten, or because clients are still
# transferring data from objects using the memory). In order to try
# and maintain a good hit rate under load, COSS will reserve the last
# 2 full stripes for object hits. (ie a COSS cache_dir will reject
# new objects when the number of full stripes is 2 less than maxfullbufs)
#
# The null store type:
#
# no options are allowed or required
#
# Common options:
#
# no-store, no new objects should be stored to this cache_dir
#
# min-size=n, refers to the min object size this storedir will accept.
# It's used to restrict a storedir to only store large objects
# (e.g. aufs) while other storedirs are optimized for smaller objects
# (e.g. COSS). Defaults to 0.
#
# max-size=n, refers to the max object size this storedir supports.
# It is used to initially choose the storedir to dump the object.
# Note: To make optimal use of the max-size limits you should order
# the cache_dir lines with the smallest max-size value first and the
# ones with no max-size specification last.
#
# Note that for coss, max-size must be less than COSS_MEMBUF_SZ
# (hard coded at 1 MB).
#
#Default:
cache_dir aufs /opt/local/var/squid/cache 2000 16 256
# TAG: store_dir_select_algorithm
# Set this to 'round-robin' as an alternative.
#
#Default:
# store_dir_select_algorithm least-load
# TAG: max_open_disk_fds
# To avoid having disk as the I/O bottleneck Squid can optionally
# bypass the on-disk cache if more than this amount of disk file
# descriptors are open.
#
# A value of 0 indicates no limit.
#
#Default:
# max_open_disk_fds 0
# TAG: minimum_object_size (bytes)
# Objects smaller than this size will NOT be saved on disk. The
# value is specified in kilobytes, and the default is 0 KB, which
# means there is no minimum.
#
#Default:
# minimum_object_size 0 KB
# TAG: maximum_object_size (bytes)
# Objects larger than this size will NOT be saved on disk. The
# value is specified in kilobytes, and the default is 4MB. If
# you wish to get a high BYTES hit ratio, you should probably
# increase this (one 32 MB object hit counts for 3200 10KB
# hits). If you wish to increase speed more than your want to
# save bandwidth you should leave this low.
#
# NOTE: if using the LFUDA replacement policy you should increase
# this value to maximize the byte hit rate improvement of LFUDA!
# See replacement_policy below for a discussion of this policy.
#
#Default:
maximum_object_size 140960 KB
# TAG: cache_swap_low (percent, 0-100)
# TAG: cache_swap_high (percent, 0-100)
#
# The low- and high-water marks for cache object replacement.
# Replacement begins when the swap (disk) usage is above the
# low-water mark and attempts to maintain utilization near the
# low-water mark. As swap utilization gets close to high-water
# mark object eviction becomes more aggressive. If utilization is
# close to the low-water mark less replacement is done each time.
#
# Defaults are 90% and 95%. If you have a large cache, 5% could be
# hundreds of MB. If this is the case you may wish to set these
# numbers closer together.
#
#Default:
# cache_swap_low 90
# cache_swap_high 95
# TAG: update_headers on|off
# By default Squid updates stored HTTP headers when receiving
# a 304 response. Set this to off if you want to disable this
# for disk I/O performance reasons. Disabling this VIOLATES the
# HTTP standard, and could make you liable for problems which it
# causes.

# LOGFILE OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: logformat
# Usage:
#
# logformat <name> <format specification>
#
# Defines an access log format.
#
# The <format specification> is a string with embedded % format codes
#
# % format codes all follow the same basic structure where all but

# access_log none [acl acl ...]]
#
# Will log to the specified file using the specified format (which

# TAG: cache_log
# Cache logging file. This is where general information about

#
#Default:
# cache_log /opt/local/var/squid/logs/cache.log
# TAG: cache_store_log
# Logs the activities of the storage manager. Shows which
# objects are ejected from the cache, and which objects are
# saved and for how long. To disable, enter "none". There are
# not really utilities to analyze this data, so you can safely
# disable it.
#
#Default:
# cache_store_log /opt/local/var/squid/logs/store.log
# TAG: cache_swap_state
# Location for the cache "swap.state" file. This index file holds
# the metadata of objects saved on disk. It is used to rebuild
# the cache during startup. Normally this file resides in each
# 'cache_dir' directory, but you may specify an alternate
# pathname here. Note you must give a full filename, not just
# a directory. Since this is the index for the whole object
# list you CANNOT periodically rotate it!
#
# If %s can be used in the file name it will be replaced with a
# a representation of the cache_dir name where each / is replaced
# with '.'. This is needed to allow adding/removing cache_dir
# lines when cache_swap_log is being used.
#
# If have more than one 'cache_dir', and %s is not used in the name
# these swap logs will have names such as:
#
# cache_swap_log.00
# cache_swap_log.01
# cache_swap_log.02
#
# The numbered extension (which is added automatically)
# corresponds to the order of the 'cache_dir' lines in this
# configuration file. If you change the order of the 'cache_dir'
# lines in this file, these index files will NOT correspond to
# the correct 'cache_dir' entry (unless you manually rename
# them). We recommend you do NOT use this option. It is
# better to keep these index files in each 'cache_dir' directory.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: logfile_rotate
# Specifies the number of logfile rotations to make when you
# type 'squid -k rotate'. The default is 10, which will rotate
# with extensions 0 through 9. Setting logfile_rotate to 0 will
# disable the file name rotation, but the logfiles are still closed
# and re-opened. This will enable you to rename the logfiles
# yourself just before sending the rotate signal.
#
# Note, the 'squid -k rotate' command normally sends a USR1
# signal to the running squid process. In certain situations
# (e.g. on Linux with Async I/O), USR1 is used for other
# purposes, so -k rotate uses another signal. It is best to get
# in the habit of using 'squid -k rotate' instead of 'kill -USR1
# <pid>'.
#
#Default:
# logfile_rotate 10
# TAG: emulate_httpd_log on|off
# The Cache can emulate the log file format which many 'httpd'
# programs use. To disable/enable this emulation, set
# emulate_httpd_log to 'off' or 'on'. The default
# is to use the native log format since it includes useful
# information Squid-specific log analyzers use.
#
#Default:
# emulate_httpd_log off
# TAG: log_ip_on_direct on|off
# Log the destination IP address in the hierarchy log tag when going
# direct. Earlier Squid versions logged the hostname here. If you
# prefer the old way set this to off.
#
#Default:
# log_ip_on_direct on
# TAG: mime_table
# Pathname to Squid's MIME table. You shouldn't need to change
# this, but the default file contains examples and formatting

#
#Default:
# mime_table /opt/local/etc/squid/mime.conf
# TAG: log_mime_hdrs on|off
# The Cache can record both the request and the response MIME
# headers for each HTTP transaction. The headers are encoded
# safely and will appear as two bracketed fields at the end of
# the access log (for either the native or httpd-emulated log
# formats). To enable this logging set log_mime_hdrs to 'on'.
#
#Default:
# log_mime_hdrs off
# TAG: useragent_log
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the

# is disabled.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: referer_log
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the

# Note that "referer" is actually a misspelling of "referrer"
# however the misspelt version has been accepted into the HTTP RFCs
# and we accept both.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: pid_filename
# A filename to write the process-id to. To disable, enter "none".
#
#Default:
# pid_filename /opt/local/var/run/squid/squid.pid
# TAG: debug_options
# Logging options are set as section,level where each source file
# is assigned a unique section. Lower levels result in less
# output, Full debugging (level 9) can result in a very large

# levels for all sections. We recommend normally running with
# "ALL,1".
#
#Default:
# debug_options ALL,1
# TAG: log_fqdn on|off
# Turn this on if you wish to log fully qualified domain names
# in the access.log. To do this Squid does a DNS lookup of all
# IP's connecting to it. This can (in some situations) increase
# latency, which makes your cache seem slower for interactive
# browsing.
#
#Default:
# log_fqdn off
# TAG: client_netmask
# A netmask for client addresses in logfiles and cachemgr output.
# Change this to protect the privacy of your cache clients.
# A netmask of 255.255.255.0 will log all IP's in that range with
# the last digit set to '0'.
#
#Default:
# client_netmask 255.255.255.255
# TAG: forward_log
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# --enable-forward-log option
#
# Logs the server-side requests.
#
# This is currently work in progress.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: strip_query_terms
# By default, Squid strips query terms from requested URLs before
# logging. This protects your user's privacy.
#
#Default:
# strip_query_terms on
# TAG: buffered_logs on|off
# cache.log log file is written with stdio functions, and as such
# it can be buffered or unbuffered. By default it will be unbuffered.
# Buffering it can speed up the writing slightly (though you are
# unlikely to need to worry unless you run with tons of debugging
# enabled in which case performance will suffer badly anyway..).
#
#Default:
# buffered_logs off
# TAG: netdb_filename
# A filename where Squid stores it's netdb state between restarts.
# To disable, enter "none".

#Default:
# netdb_filename /opt/local/var/squid/logs/netdb.state
# OPTIONS FOR FTP GATEWAYING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: ftp_user
# If you want the anonymous login password to be more informative
# (and enable the use of picky ftp servers), set this to something
# reasonable for your domain, like wwwuser@somewhere.net
#
# The reason why this is domainless by default is the
# request can be made on the behalf of a user in any domain,
# depending on how the cache is used.
# Some ftp server also validate the email address is valid
# (for example perl.com).
#
#Default:
# ftp_user Squid@
# TAG: ftp_list_width
# Sets the width of ftp listings. This should be set to fit in
# the width of a standard browser. Setting this too small
# can cut off long filenames when browsing ftp sites.
#
#Default:
# ftp_list_width 32
# TAG: ftp_passive
# If your firewall does not allow Squid to use passive
# connections, turn off this option.
#
#Default:
# ftp_passive on
# TAG: ftp_sanitycheck
# For security and data integrity reasons Squid by default performs
# sanity checks of the addresses of FTP data connections ensure the
# data connection is to the requested server. If you need to allow
# FTP connections to servers using another IP address for the data
# connection turn this off.
#
#Default:
# ftp_sanitycheck on
# TAG: ftp_telnet_protocol
# The FTP protocol is officially defined to use the telnet protocol
# as transport channel for the control connection. However, many
# implementations are broken and does not respect this aspect of
# the FTP protocol.
#
# If you have trouble accessing files with ASCII code 255 in the
# path or similar problems involving this ASCII code you can
# try setting this directive to off. If that helps, report to the
# operator of the FTP server in question that their FTP server
# is broken and does not follow the FTP standard.
#
#Default:
# ftp_telnet_protocol on
# OPTIONS FOR EXTERNAL SUPPORT PROGRAMS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: diskd_program
# Specify the location of the diskd executable.
# Note this is only useful if you have compiled in
# diskd as one of the store io modules.
#
#Default:
# diskd_program /opt/local/libexec/squid/diskd-daemon
# TAG: unlinkd_program
# Specify the location of the executable for file deletion process.
#
#Default:
# unlinkd_program /opt/local/libexec/squid/unlinkd
# TAG: pinger_program
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# --enable-icmp option
#
# Specify the location of the executable for the pinger process.
#
#Default:
# pinger_program /opt/local/libexec/squid/pinger
# OPTIONS FOR URL REWRITING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: storeurl_rewrite_program
# Specify the location of the executable for the Store URL rewriter.
# The Store URL rewriter allows URLs to be "normalised" ; mapping
# multiple URLs to a single URL representation for cache operations.
#
# For example, if you request an object at:
#
# http://srv1.example.com/image.gif
#
# and a subsequent request for:
#
# http://srv2.example.com/image.gif
#
# then Squid will treat these both as different URLs and cache them
# seperately.
#
# This is almost the normal case, but an increasing number of sites
# distribute the same content between multiple frontend hosts.
# The Store URL rewriter allows you to rewrite these URLs to one URL
# to use for cache operations, but not -fetches-. Fetches are still
# made from the original site, but stored with the store URL rewritten
# URL as the store key.
#
# For each requested URL rewriter will receive on line with the format
#
# URL <SP> client_ip "/" fqdn <SP> user <SP> method <SP> urlgroup
# [<SP> kvpairs] <NL>
#
# In the future, the rewriter interface will be extended with
# key=value pairs ("kvpairs" shown above). Rewriter programs
# should be prepared to receive and possibly ignore additional
# whitespace-separated tokens on each input line.
#
# And the rewriter may return a rewritten URL. The other components of
# the request line does not need to be returned (ignored if they are).
#
# By default, a Store URL rewriter is not used.
#
# Please note - the normal URL rewriter rewrites Squid's _destination_
# URL - ie, what it fetches. The Store URL rewriter rewrites Squid's
# _store_ URL - ie, what it uses to store and retrieve objects.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: storeurl_rewrite_children
#
#
#Default:
# storeurl_rewrite_children 5
# TAG: storeurl_rewrite_concurrency
#
#
#Default:
# storeurl_rewrite_concurrency 0
# TAG: url_rewrite_program
# Specify the location of the executable for the URL rewriter.
# Since they can perform almost any function there isn't one included.
#
# For each requested URL rewriter will receive on line with the format
#
# URL <SP> client_ip "/" fqdn <SP> user <SP> method <SP> urlgroup
# [<SP> kvpairs] <NL>
#
# In the future, the rewriter interface will be extended with
# key=value pairs ("kvpairs" shown above). Rewriter programs
# should be prepared to receive and possibly ignore additional
# whitespace-separated tokens on each input line.
#
# And the rewriter may return a rewritten URL. The other components of
# the request line does not need to be returned (ignored if they are).
#
# The rewriter can also indicate that a client-side redirect should
# be performed to the new URL. This is done by prefixing the returned
# URL with "301:" (moved permanently) or 302: (moved temporarily).
#
# It can also return a "urlgroup" that can subsequently be matched
# in cache_peer_access and similar ACL driven rules. An urlgroup is
# returned by prefixing the returned URL with "!urlgroup!".
#
# By default, a URL rewriter is not used.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: url_rewrite_children
# The number of redirector processes to spawn. If you start
# too few Squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of
# URLs, slowing it down. If you start too many they will use RAM
# and other system resources.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_children 5
# TAG: url_rewrite_concurrency
# The number of requests each redirector helper can handle in
# parallel. Defaults to 0 which indicates the redirector
# is a old-style single threaded redirector.
#
# When this directive is set to a value >= 1 then the protocol
# used to communicate with the helper is modified to include
# a request ID in front of the request/response. The request
# ID from the request must be echoed back with the response
# to that request.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_concurrency 0
# TAG: url_rewrite_host_header
# By default Squid rewrites any Host: header in redirected
# requests. If you are running an accelerator this may
# not be a wanted effect of a redirector.
#
# WARNING: Entries are cached on the result of the URL rewriting
# process, so be careful if you have domain-virtual hosts.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_host_header on
# TAG: url_rewrite_access
# If defined, this access list specifies which requests are
# sent to the redirector processes. By default all requests
# are sent.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: storeurl_access
#
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: redirector_bypass
# When this is 'on', a request will not go through the
# redirector if all redirectors are busy. If this is 'off'
# and the redirector queue grows too large, Squid will exit
# with a FATAL error and ask you to increase the number of
# redirectors. You should only enable this if the redirectors
# are not critical to your caching system. If you use
# redirectors for access control, and you enable this option,
# users may have access to pages they should not
# be allowed to request.
#
#Default:
# redirector_bypass off
# TAG: location_rewrite_program
# Specify the location of the executable for the Location rewriter,
# used to rewrite server generated redirects. Usually used in
# conjunction with a url_rewrite_program
#
# For each Location header received the location rewriter will receive
# one line with the format:
#
# location URL <SP> requested URL <SP> urlgroup <NL>
#
# And the rewriter may return a rewritten Location URL or a blank line.
# The other components of the request line does not need to be returned
# (ignored if they are).
#
# By default, a Location rewriter is not used.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: location_rewrite_children
# The number of location rewriting processes to spawn. If you start
# too few Squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of
# URLs, slowing it down. If you start too many they will use RAM
# and other system resources.
#
#Default:
# location_rewrite_children 5
# TAG: location_rewrite_concurrency
# The number of requests each Location rewriter helper can handle in
# parallel. Defaults to 0 which indicates that the helper
# is a old-style singlethreaded helper.
#
#Default:
# location_rewrite_concurrency 0
# TAG: location_rewrite_access
# If defined, this access list specifies which requests are
# sent to the location rewriting processes. By default all Location
# headers are sent.
#
#Default:
# none
# OPTIONS FOR TUNING THE CACHE
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache
# A list of ACL elements which, if matched, cause the request to
# not be satisfied from the cache and the reply to not be cached.
# In other words, use this to force certain objects to never be cached.
#
# You must use the word 'DENY' to indicate the ACL names which should
# NOT be cached.
#
# Default is to allow all to be cached.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: max_stale time-units
# This option puts an upper limit on how stale content Squid
# will serve from the cache if cache validation fails.
#
#Default:
# max_stale 1 week
# TAG: refresh_pattern
# usage: refresh_pattern [-i] regex min percent max [options]
#
# By default, regular expressions are CASE-SENSITIVE. To make
# them case-insensitive, use the -i option.
#
# 'Min' is the time (in minutes) an object without an explicit
# expiry time should be considered fresh. The recommended
# value is 0, any higher values may cause dynamic applications
# to be erroneously cached unless the application designer
# has taken the appropriate actions.
#
# 'Percent' is a percentage of the objects age (time since last
# modification age) an object without explicit expiry time
# will be considered fresh.
#
# 'Max' is an upper limit on how long objects without an explicit
# expiry time will be considered fresh.
#
# options: override-expire
# override-lastmod
# reload-into-ims
# ignore-reload
# ignore-no-cache
# ignore-private
# ignore-auth
# stale-while-revalidate=NN
# ignore-stale-while-revalidate
# max-stale=NN
# negative-ttl=NN
#
# override-expire enforces min age even if the server
# sent an explicit expiry time (e.g., with the
# Expires: header or Cache-Control: max-age). Doing this
# VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature
# could make you liable for problems which it causes.
#
# Note: this does not enforce staleness - it only extends
# freshness / min. If the server returns a Expires time which
# is longer than your max time, Squid will still consider
# the object fresh for that period of time.
#
# override-lastmod enforces min age even on objects
# that were modified recently.
#
# reload-into-ims changes client no-cache or ``reload''
# to If-Modified-Since requests. Doing this VIOLATES the
# HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
# liable for problems which it causes.
#
# ignore-reload ignores a client no-cache or ``reload''
# header. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling
# this feature could make you liable for problems which
# it causes.
#
# ignore-no-cache ignores any ``Pragma: no-cache'' and
# ``Cache-control: no-cache'' headers received from a server.
# The HTTP RFC never allows the use of this (Pragma) header
# from a server, only a client, though plenty of servers
# send it anyway.
#
# ignore-private ignores any ``Cache-control: private''
# headers received from a server. Doing this VIOLATES
# the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
# liable for problems which it causes.
#
# ignore-auth caches responses to requests with authorization,
# as if the originserver had sent ``Cache-control: public''
# in the response header. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard.
# Enabling this feature could make you liable for problems which
# it causes.
#
# stale-while-revalidate=NN makes Squid perform an asyncronous
# cache validation if the object isn't more stale than NN.
# Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling this
# feature could make you liable for problems which it
# causes.
#
# ignore-stale-while-revalidate makes Squid ignore any 'Cache-Control:
# stale-while-revalidate=NN' headers received from a server. Can be
# combined with stale-while-revalidate=NN to override the server provided
# value.
#
# max-stale=NN provided a maximum staleness factor. Squid won't
# serve objects more stale than this even if it failed to
# validate the object.
#
# negative-ttl=NN overrides the global negative_ttl parameter
# selectively for URLs matching this pattern (in seconds).
#
# Basically a cached object is:
#
# FRESH if expires < now, else STALE
# STALE if age > max
# FRESH if lm-factor < percent, else STALE
# FRESH if age < min
# else STALE
#
# The refresh_pattern lines are checked in the order listed here.
# The first entry which matches is used. If none of the entries
# match the default will be used.
#
# Note, you must uncomment all the default lines if you want
# to change one. The default setting is only active if none is
# used.
#
#Suggested default:
refresh_pattern ^ftp: 1440 20% 10080
refresh_pattern ^gopher: 1440 0% 1440
refresh_pattern -i (/cgi-bin/|\?) 0 0% 0
refresh_pattern . 0 20% 4320
# TAG: quick_abort_min (KB)
# TAG: quick_abort_max (KB)
# TAG: quick_abort_pct (percent)
# The cache by default continues downloading aborted requests
# which are almost completed (less than 16 KB remaining). This
# may be undesirable on slow (e.g. SLIP) links and/or very busy
# caches. Impatient users may tie up file descriptors and
# bandwidth by repeatedly requesting and immediately aborting
# downloads.
#
# When the user aborts a request, Squid will check the
# quick_abort values to the amount of data transfered until
# then.
#
# If the transfer has less than 'quick_abort_min' KB remaining,
# it will finish the retrieval.
#
# If the transfer has more than 'quick_abort_max' KB remaining,
# it will abort the retrieval.
#
# If more than 'quick_abort_pct' of the transfer has completed,
# it will finish the retrieval.
#
# If you do not want any retrieval to continue after the client
# has aborted, set both 'quick_abort_min' and 'quick_abort_max'
# to '0 KB'.
#
# If you want retrievals to always continue if they are being
# cached set 'quick_abort_min' to '-1 KB'.
#
#Default:
# quick_abort_min 16 KB
# quick_abort_max 16 KB
# quick_abort_pct 95
# TAG: read_ahead_gap buffer-size
# The amount of data the cache will buffer ahead of what has been
# sent to the client when retrieving an object from another server.
#
#Default:
# read_ahead_gap 16 KB
# TAG: negative_ttl time-units
# Time-to-Live (TTL) for failed requests. Certain types of
# failures (such as "connection refused" and "404 Not Found") are
# negatively-cached for a configurable amount of time. The
# default is 5 minutes. Note that this is different from
# negative caching of DNS lookups.
#
#Default:
# negative_ttl 5 minutes
# TAG: positive_dns_ttl time-units
# Upper limit on how long Squid will cache positive DNS responses.
# Default is 6 hours (360 minutes). This directive must be set
# larger than negative_dns_ttl.
#
#Default:
# positive_dns_ttl 6 hours
# TAG: negative_dns_ttl time-units
# Time-to-Live (TTL) for negative caching of failed DNS lookups.
# This also sets the lower cache limit on positive lookups.
# Minimum value is 1 second, and it is not recommendable to go
# much below 10 seconds.
#
#Default:
# negative_dns_ttl 1 minute
# TAG: range_offset_limit (bytes)
# Sets a upper limit on how far into the the file a Range request
# may be to cause Squid to prefetch the whole file. If beyond this
# limit Squid forwards the Range request as it is and the result
# is NOT cached.
#
# This is to stop a far ahead range request (lets say start at 17MB)
# from making Squid fetch the whole object up to that point before
# sending anything to the client.
#
# A value of -1 causes Squid to always fetch the object from the
# beginning so it may cache the result. (2.0 style)
#
# A value of 0 causes Squid to never fetch more than the
# client requested. (default)
#
#Default:
# range_offset_limit 0 KB
# TAG: minimum_expiry_time (seconds)
# The minimum caching time according to (Expires - Date)
# Headers Squid honors if the object can't be revalidated
# defaults to 60 seconds. In reverse proxy enorinments it
# might be desirable to honor shorter object lifetimes. It
# is most likely better to make your server return a
# meaningful Last-Modified header however.
#
#Default:
# minimum_expiry_time 60 seconds
# TAG: store_avg_object_size (kbytes)
# Average object size, used to estimate number of objects your
# cache can hold. The default is 13 KB.
#
#Default:
# store_avg_object_size 13 KB
# TAG: store_objects_per_bucket
# Target number of objects per bucket in the store hash table.
# Lowering this value increases the total number of buckets and
# also the storage maintenance rate. The default is 20.
#
#Default:
# store_objects_per_bucket 20
# HTTP OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: request_header_max_size (KB)
# This specifies the maximum size for HTTP headers in a request.
# Request headers are usually relatively small (about 512 bytes).
# Placing a limit on the request header size will catch certain

# buffer-overflow or denial-of-service attacks.
#
#Default:

# TAG: reply_header_max_size (KB)
# This specifies the maximum size for HTTP headers in a reply.
# Reply headers are usually relatively small (about 512 bytes).

# buffer-overflow or denial-of-service attacks.
#
#Default:
# reply_header_max_size 20 KB
# TAG: request_body_max_size (KB)
# This specifies the maximum size for an HTTP request body.
# In other words, the maximum size of a PUT/POST request.
# A user who attempts to send a request with a body larger
# than this limit receives an "Invalid Request" error message.
# If you set this parameter to a zero (the default), there will
# be no limit imposed.
#
#Default:
# request_body_max_size 0 KB
# TAG: broken_posts
# A list of ACL elements which, if matched, causes Squid to send
# an extra CRLF pair after the body of a PUT/POST request.
#
# Some HTTP servers has broken implementations of PUT/POST,
# and rely on an extra CRLF pair sent by some WWW clients.
#
# Quote from RFC2616 section 4.1 on this matter:
#
# Note: certain buggy HTTP/1.0 client implementations generate an
# extra CRLF's after a POST request. To restate what is explicitly
# forbidden by the BNF, an HTTP/1.1 client must not preface or follow
# a request with an extra CRLF.
#
#Example:
# acl buggy_server url_regex ^http://....
# broken_posts allow buggy_server
#
#Default:

# TAG: upgrade_http0.9
# This access list controls when HTTP/0.9 responses is upgraded
# to our current HTTP version. The default is to always upgrade.
#
# Some applications expect to be able to respond with non-HTTP
# responses and clients gets confused if the response is upgraded.
# For example SHOUTcast servers used for mp3 streaming.
#
# To enable some flexibility in detection of such applications

# cache_vary on
# TAG: broken_vary_encoding
# Many servers have broken support for on-the-fly Content-Encoding,

# TAG: collapsed_forwarding (on|off)
# This option enables multiple requests for the same URI to be
# processed as one request. Normally disabled to avoid increased
# latency on dynamic content, but there can be benefit from enabling
# this in accelerator setups where the web servers are the bottleneck
# and reliable and returns mostly cacheable information.
#
#Default:
# collapsed_forwarding off
# TAG: refresh_stale_hit (time)
# This option changes the refresh algorithm to allow concurrent
# requests while an object is being refreshed to be processed as
# cache hits if the object expired less than X seconds ago. Default
# is 0 to disable this feature. This option is mostly interesting
# in accelerator setups where a few objects is accessed very
# frequently.
#
#Default:
# refresh_stale_hit 0 seconds
# TAG: ie_refresh on|off
# Microsoft Internet Explorer up until version 5.5 Service
# Pack 1 has an issue with transparent proxies, wherein it
# is impossible to force a refresh. Turning this on provides
# a partial fix to the problem, by causing all IMS-REFRESH
# requests from older IE versions to check the origin server
# for fresh content. This reduces hit ratio by some amount
# (~10% in my experience), but allows users to actually get
# fresh content when they want it. Note because Squid
# cannot tell if the user is using 5.5 or 5.5SP1, the behavior
# of 5.5 is unchanged from old versions of Squid (i.e. a
# forced refresh is impossible). Newer versions of IE will,
# hopefully, continue to have the new behavior and will be
# handled based on that assumption. This option defaults to
# the old Squid behavior, which is better for hit ratios but
# worse for clients using IE, if they need to be able to
# force fresh content.
#
#Default:
# ie_refresh off
# TAG: vary_ignore_expire on|off
# Many HTTP servers supporting Vary gives such objects
# immediate expiry time with no cache-control header
# when requested by a HTTP/1.0 client. This option
# enables Squid to ignore such expiry times until
# HTTP/1.1 is fully implemented.
# WARNING: This may eventually cause some varying
# objects not intended for caching to get cached.

# TAG: extension_methods
# Squid only knows about standardized HTTP request methods.
# You can add up to 20 additional "extension" methods here.

# TAG: request_entities
# Squid defaults to deny GET and HEAD requests with request entities,
# as the meaning of such requests are undefined in the HTTP standard
# even if not explicitly forbidden.
#
# Set this directive to on if you have clients which insists
# on sending request entities in GET or HEAD requests. But be warned
# that there is server software (both proxies and web servers) which

# TAG: header_access
# Usage: header_access header_name allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
# WARNING: Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling
# this feature could make you liable for problems which it
# causes.
#
# This option replaces the old 'anonymize_headers' and the
# older 'http_anonymizer' option with something that is much
# more configurable. This new method creates a list of ACLs
# for each header, allowing you very fine-tuned header
# mangling.
#
# You can only specify known headers for the header name.
# Other headers are reclassified as 'Other'. You can also
# refer to all the headers with 'All'.
#
# For example, to achieve the same behavior as the old

# header_access From deny all
# header_access Referer deny all
# header_access Server deny all
# header_access User-Agent deny all
# header_access WWW-Authenticate deny all
# header_access Link deny all

# Example: header_replace User-Agent Nutscrape/1.0 (CP/M; 8-bit)
#
# This option allows you to change the contents of headers
# denied with header_access above, by replacing them with
# some fixed string. This replaces the old fake_user_agent
# option.
#
# By default, headers are removed if denied.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: relaxed_header_parser on|off|warn
# In the default "on" setting Squid accepts certain forms
# of non-compliant HTTP messages where it is unambiguous
# what the sending application intended even if the message
# is not correctly formatted. The messages is then normalized
# to the correct form when forwarded by Squid.
#
# If set to "warn" then a warning will be emitted in cache.log
# each time such HTTP error is encountered.
#
# If set to "off" then such HTTP errors will cause the request
# or response to be rejected.
#
#Default:
# relaxed_header_parser on
# TAG: server_http11 on|off
# This option enables the use ot HTTP/1.1 on outgoing "direct" requests.
# See also the http11 cache_peer option.
# Note: The HTTP/1.1 support is still incomplete, with an
# internal HTTP/1.0 hop. As result 1xx responses will not
# be forwarded.
#
#Default:
# server_http11 off
# TAG: ignore_expect_100 on|off
# This option makes Squid ignore any Expect: 100-continue header present
# in the request.
# Note: Enabling this is a HTTP protocol violation, but some client may
# not handle it well..
#
#Default:
# ignore_expect_100 off
# TAG: external_refresh_check
# This option defines an external helper for determining whether to
# refresh a stale response. It will be called when Squid receives a
# request for a cached response that is stale; the helper can either
# confirm that the response is stale with a STALE response, or
# extend the freshness of the response (thereby avoiding a refresh
# check) with a FRESH response, along with a freshness=nnn keyword.
#
# external_refresh_check [options] FORMAT.. /path/to/helper [helper_args]
#
# If present, helper_args will be passed to the helper on the command
# line verbatim.
#
# Options:
#
# children=n Number of processes to spawn to service external
# refresh checks (default 5).
# concurrency=n Concurrency level per process. Only used with
# helpers capable of processing more than one query
# at a time.
#
# When using the concurrency option, the protocol is changed by introducing
# a query channel tag infront of the request/response. The query channel
# tag is a number between 0 and concurrency-1.
#
# FORMAT specifications:
#
# %CACHE_URI The URI of the cached response
# %RES{Header} HTTP response header value
# %AGE The age of the cached response
#
# The request sent to the helper consists of the data in the format
# specification in the order specified.
#
# The helper receives lines per the above format specification, and
# returns lines starting with OK or ERR indicating the validity of
# the request and optionally followed by additional keywords with
# more details. URL escaping is used to protect each value in both
# requests and responses.
#
# General result syntax:
#
# FRESH / STALE keyword=value ...
#
# Defined keywords:
#
# freshness=nnn The number of seconds to extend the freshness of
# the response by.
# log=string String to be logged in access.log. Available as
# %ef in logformat specifications.
# res{Header}=value
# Value to update response headers with. If already
# present, the supplied value completely replaces
# the cached value.
#
# In the event of a helper-related error (e.g., overload), Squid
# will always default to STALE.
#
#Default:
# none
# TIMEOUTS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: forward_timeout time-units
# This parameter specifies how long Squid should at most attempt in
# finding a forwarding path for the request before giving up.
#
#Default:
# forward_timeout 4 minutes
# TAG: connect_timeout time-units
# This parameter specifies how long to wait for the TCP connect to
# the requested server or peer to complete before Squid should
# attempt to find another path where to forward the request.
#
#Default:
# connect_timeout 1 minute
# TAG: peer_connect_timeout time-units
# This parameter specifies how long to wait for a pending TCP
# connection to a peer cache. The default is 30 seconds. You
# may also set different timeout values for individual neighbors
# with the 'connect-timeout' option on a 'cache_peer' line.
#
#Default:
# peer_connect_timeout 30 seconds
# TAG: read_timeout time-units
# The read_timeout is applied on server-side connections. After
# each successful read(), the timeout will be extended by this
# amount. If no data is read again after this amount of time,
# the request is aborted and logged with ERR_READ_TIMEOUT. The
# default is 15 minutes.
#
#Default:
# read_timeout 15 minutes
# TAG: request_timeout
# How long to wait for an HTTP request after initial
# connection establishment.
#
#Default:
# request_timeout 5 minutes
# TAG: persistent_request_timeout
# How long to wait for the next HTTP request on a persistent
# connection after the previous request completes.
#
#Default:
# persistent_request_timeout 2 minutes
# TAG: client_lifetime time-units
# The maximum amount of time a client (browser) is allowed to
# remain connected to the cache process. This protects the Cache
# from having a lot of sockets (and hence file descriptors) tied up
# in a CLOSE_WAIT state from remote clients that go away without
# properly shutting down (either because of a network failure or
# because of a poor client implementation). The default is one
# day, 1440 minutes.
#
# NOTE: The default value is intended to be much larger than any
# client would ever need to be connected to your cache. You
# should probably change client_lifetime only as a last resort.
# If you seem to have many client connections tying up
# filedescriptors, we recommend first tuning the read_timeout,
# request_timeout, persistent_request_timeout and quick_abort values.
#
#Default:
# client_lifetime 1 day
# TAG: half_closed_clients
# Some clients may shutdown the sending side of their TCP
# connections, while leaving their receiving sides open. Sometimes,
# Squid can not tell the difference between a half-closed and a
# fully-closed TCP connection. By default, half-closed client
# connections are kept open until a read(2) or write(2) on the
# socket returns an error. Change this option to 'off' and Squid
# will immediately close client connections when read(2) returns
# "no more data to read."
#
#Default:
# half_closed_clients on
# TAG: pconn_timeout
# Timeout for idle persistent connections to servers and other
# proxies.
#
#Default:
# pconn_timeout 1 minute
# TAG: ident_timeout
# Maximum time to wait for IDENT lookups to complete.
#
# If this is too high, and you enabled IDENT lookups from untrusted
# users, you might be susceptible to denial-of-service by having
# many ident requests going at once.
#
#Default:
# ident_timeout 10 seconds
# TAG: shutdown_lifetime time-units
# When SIGTERM or SIGHUP is received, the cache is put into
# "shutdown pending" mode until all active sockets are closed.
# This value is the lifetime to set for all open descriptors
# during shutdown mode. Any active clients after this many
# seconds will receive a 'timeout' message.
#
#Default:
# shutdown_lifetime 30 seconds
# ADMINISTRATIVE PARAMETERS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache_mgr
# Email-address of local cache manager who will receive
# mail if the cache dies. The default is "webmaster".
#
#Default:
# cache_mgr webmaster
# TAG: mail_from
# From: email-address for mail sent when the cache dies.
# The default is to use 'appname@unique_hostname'.
# Default appname value is "squid", can be changed into
# src/globals.h before building squid.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: mail_program
# Email program used to send mail if the cache dies.
# The default is "mail". The specified program must comply
# with the standard Unix mail syntax:
# mail-program recipient < mailfile
#
# Optional command line options can be specified.
#
#Default:
# mail_program mail
# TAG: cache_effective_user
# If you start Squid as root, it will change its effective/real
# UID/GID to the user specified below. The default is to change
# to UID to squid. If you define cache_effective_user, but not
# cache_effective_group, Squid sets the GID to the effective
# user's default group ID (taken from the password file) and
# supplementary group list from the from groups membership of
# cache_effective_user.
#
#Default:
# cache_effective_user squid
# TAG: cache_effective_group
# If you want Squid to run with a specific GID regardless of
# the group memberships of the effective user then set this
# to the group (or GID) you want Squid to run as. When set
# all other group privileges of the effective user is ignored
# and only this GID is effective. If Squid is not started as
# root the user starting Squid must be member of the specified
# group.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: httpd_suppress_version_string on|off
# Suppress Squid version string info in HTTP headers and HTML error pages.
#
#Default:
# httpd_suppress_version_string off
# TAG: visible_hostname
# If you want to present a special hostname in error messages, etc,
# define this. Otherwise, the return value of gethostname()
# will be used. If you have multiple caches in a cluster and
# get errors about IP-forwarding you must set them to have individual
# names with this setting.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: unique_hostname
# If you want to have multiple machines with the same
# 'visible_hostname' you must give each machine a different
# 'unique_hostname' so forwarding loops can be detected.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: hostname_aliases
# A list of other DNS names your cache has.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: umask
# Minimum umask which should be enforced while the proxy
# is running, in addition to the umask set at startup.
#
# Note: Should start with a 0 to indicate the normal octal
# representation of umasks
#
#Default:
# umask 027
# OPTIONS FOR THE CACHE REGISTRATION SERVICE
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# This section contains parameters for the (optional) cache
# announcement service. This service is provided to help
# cache administrators locate one another in order to join or
# create cache hierarchies.
#
# An 'announcement' message is sent (via UDP) to the registration
# service by Squid. By default, the announcement message is NOT
# SENT unless you enable it with 'announce_period' below.
#
# The announcement message includes your hostname, plus the
# following information from this configuration file:
#
# http_port
# icp_port
# cache_mgr
#
# All current information is processed regularly and made
# available on the Web at http://www.ircache.net/Cache/Tracker/.
