SSL Certificate Deamon Children?



  • Hello,

    I am new to Squid. I encountered with SSL Certificate Deamon Children and don't know what is it for. Default number is 5. I have about more than 300 ip in my network. Then this number have to be equal to amount of ips? If not, could you please explain me woth samples when it is needed to increase this number to higher?

  • don't know what is it for

    http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/config/sslcrtd_children/

    The sslcrtd_children directive controls how many concurrent threads can access the certificate database.

    Then this number have to be equal to amount of ips?

    No, you don't need a child thread per user.  Usually, you don't need to play with the various squid directives unless you are getting errors telling you all the children are busy.  If you are getting this error, try bumping the value in increments of 5 or 10 until the problem disappears.

    could you please explain me woth samples when it is needed to increase this number to higher?

    Again, you only need to raise this if you are getting ssl-child errors.



  • That error might happen when opening more than 5 https sites per ip address?



  • I don't know.  Are you getting errors or are you just curious about this specific directive?
