Squidguard Integrations Ordering Test

  • I was wondering if someone else could verify the weirdness I'm seeing.

    Currently, when I activate SquidGuard (squidGuard-squid3, latest Squid & squidGuard packages for pfSense 2.1.5) it nicely adds the following to the Squid integrations section in the proxy config:

    redirect_children 5;redirect_program /usr/pbi/squidguard-squid3-amd64/bin/squidGuard -c /usr/pbi/squidguard-squid3-amd64/etc/squidGuard/squidGuard.conf;redirector_bypass off;url_rewrite_children 5

    If I change "redirect_children 5" to "redirect_children 20", when Squid starts, it still only starts 5 redirect processes.  If I change the order of the command around, moving redirect_children to the end it starts 20 processes as expected:

    redirect_program /usr/pbi/squidguard-squid3-amd64/bin/squidGuard -c /usr/pbi/squidguard-squid3-amd64/etc/squidGuard/squidGuard.conf;redirector_bypass off;url_rewrite_children 5;redirect_children 20

    This would should be a pretty easy fix, but before I bug the maintainer, I wanted to see if it this was happening to everyone, or just me.

  • its hard coded in the squidguard package.
