SQUID CACHE FILES



  • hello dudes,

    i search for the squid or antivirus cache temp directory!

    i know this:
    /var/squid/cache/
    /var/squidGuard/…

    i search for files like "winrar32.exe" in the cache

    where are the files (human readable :) ) ?

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP



  • or…

    where can i see how much from my 500gb squid cache is in use???

    (but not over disk usage in pfsense sysinfo please!)

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!



  • As far as I know, the cache files are not human readable.  I would just take a look at your disk usage in the GUI/Status/System to estimate cache usage.



  • Cache files are not trivially human readable.  It is possible to do what you're after and this excellent blog post should help you.



  • hmmm….

    i find some jpegs, pngs and so on

    here some commands i used:

    1. cd /var/squid/log/
    2. sort -r -n +4 -5 access.log | awk '{print $5, $7}' | head -25 | grep iso

    with this command i can findmy downloaded debian iso image
    but how can get i detailed information about cache usage, without satus->system (pfsense gui)

    i want to know how much capa from 500gb is used for downloaded cached files till yet ;)

    someone know?



  • i think i found a usefull tool for viewing cache
    is a cgi script named: cachmgr.cgi

    –>  http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/CacheManager

    for configuration i need info about apache version in pfsense1.2.3-release

    ohhh wow search it baby

    perfect thanks gurus!!!!



  • ok i have one problem with this….my structur :(

    i cant like this:   http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=14609.0

    edit the acl localhost to my lan addy

    acl localhost 127.0.0.1/255.255.255.255

    change to:

    acl localhost 192.168.10.10/255.255.255.255

    this it not possible because of
    squid:
    http_port 127.0.0.1:3333

    Example with result solution ;)

    when your structur:

    intranet (wan) –- squid cache --- havp --- intranet (lan)

    because of havp dont understand ftp protokoll

    then you have to configure

    /usr/local/etc/squid/cachemgr.conf

    localhost:"your squid port"
    f.e.
    localhost:6666

    you schouldnt write ips 127.0.0.1:port          !!!!!!!!!!

    step two:

    /usr/local/etc/squid/squid.conf

    at first add some lines before acl entries:

    cachemgr_passwd disable offline_toggle reconfigure shutdown
    cachemgr_passwd none all

    and second add some lines after acl entries!

    http_access allow manager localhost
    http_access allow manager localnet
    #http_access deny manager

    i know the entry is false, but i dont have a solution to access with deny all manager rule???!!!!

    thats all and you can access a perfect cache manager tool for squid ! :)
    questions = pm

    Good Luck
