Traffic shaping and squid
After reading through the sticky, it sounds like traffic shaping does not work properly with squid. I like to add traffic shaping to manage video and voip traffic. 'Only HVAP and Squid are installed.
Anyone has it working properly?
I'd love to hear this one too.
I'd imagine you just have to set up the rule properly, but I've tried almost everything I can think of to no avail.
do you use HVAP? The other option for me is stop using HVAP and squid all together.
As it happens, I finally gave this a try (albeit on a 2.1 system) last night, as my users had managed to offend me sufficiently (MPAA sharing violations - not only do they indicate that users have violated our policies and mean I need to find harsher controls to curb bad behavior, they also irritate the heck out of me…) and while I had some limited effect, I could not get any traffic into the proxy queue nor the http queue. It's all twisty little passages, all alike, in the dark and filled with Grues from a documentation standpoint. After no apparent effect from the linked method, I eventually tried using the layer 7 stuff to identify cache hits and misses and place them in queues, at (roughly) which point everything stopped working and I gave up and reverted to a saved configuration from before I started messing with the poorly documented Shaper. There has got to be a better way to do this, or better documentation of how to do this (that actually works).
