Bandwidth acceleration with squid.
i am trying to accomplish a simple task of utilizing squids bandwidth throttling.
the two options avaiable, Overall bandwidth throttling & Per-host throttling
Now obviously as it says on the config page that these values have to be in KB (KiloBytes)
to begin with i'd like a yes or no answer from someone who understands this more. does this feature account like a download accelerator but for squid?
second, whats the best option to use… overall for everyone or per-host? and then for example if a download is started does it keep accelerating per that value? for example if i had set the perhost to 128KB and a user is downloading a 20MB file, does it only accelerate for 128KB and then leave the rest alone?
These options set the limit on the bandwidth
so what i am trying to accomplish (acceleration) is not the same as this? :-\
Overall bandwidth throttling - restrict squid common bandwidth
Per-host throttling - restrict squid per-user bandwidth (user can not exceed the specified value)
This is not accelerating, it is the limit. "This value specifies (in kilobytes per second) " - means how many kilobytes per second the user can receive
