Squid3 only reports TCP_MISS, never TCP_HIT



  • Hi!

    I recently installed squid3 (pfSense 2.2).

    I've been following some guides, tweaks etc, but when I look at the logs, and Realtime (Servces->Proxy Server->Realtime), all requests are TCP_MISS…Not one single TCP_HIT.

    This is how it is configurated at the moment:
    General
    Proxy Interfaces: Bridge (Lan+Wifi)
    Allow users on interface: On

    Transparent Proxy interface(s): Bridge (Lan+Wifi)
    Transparent Proxy: On

    Local cache
    Low-water-mark in %: 90
    High-water-mark in %: 95
    Enable offline mode: Off
    Hard disk cache size: 5000 (mb)
    Hard disk cache system: UFS
    Minimum object size: 0
    Maximum object size: 512000 (kb)

    Memory cache size: 0
    Maximum object size in RAM: 32 (kb)
    Memory replacement policy: Head GDSF
    Cache Dynamic Content: On

    All the other stuff available I havent touched at all, such as: Antivirus, ACL, Auth, Traffic MGMT etc.

    Help would be much appreciated.

    This is a sample of /var/squid/logs/access.log

  • Squid as a caching platform is of limited use these days due to the dynamic nature of the web.  My tests show that my hit rate is in the area of 3-7%.  Not very good, but I use Squid more as the base for filtering with SquidGuard.

    SSH in and run this command:

    squidclient -h pfSense_LAN_IP_Address -p 3128 mgr:info
    

    and look for Cache information for Squid

    Her eis a sample of my output:

    Cache information for squid:
            Hits as % of all requests:      5min: 0.7%, 60min: 1.1%
            Hits as % of bytes sent:        5min: 67.8%, 60min: 51.4%
            Memory hits as % of hit requests:      5min: 0.0%, 60min: 12.5%
            Disk hits as % of hit requests: 5min: 62.5%, 60min: 22.0%
            Storage Swap size:      459662 KB
            Storage Swap capacity:  89.8% used, 10.2% free
            Storage Mem size:      87208 KB
            Storage Mem capacity:  34.3% used, 65.7% free
            Mean Object Size:      42.29 KB
            Requests given to unlinkd:      255644

    1% hit rate over the past hour.  1%.

    I could play with various Squid settings and refresh_pattern definitions to try and improve it, but I have a fast link and tons of capacity.



  • @KOM:

    squidclient -h pfSense_LAN_IP_Address -p 3128 mgr:info
    

    Hi!

    This command gives me a bunch of html-code, and when I run```
    squidclient -h 192.168.0.1 -p 3128 mgr:info >> test.php



  • Just SSH in and run the command as given or do it via Diagnostics - Command Prompt.



  • @KOM:

    I've tried that too, it is as if squid is blocking the LAN ip.

    Edit: I believe I used the wrong IP earlier, however, now when I am using the new IP it results:

    [2.2-RELEASE][admin@gate.ninya.org]/usr/local/www: squidclient -h 192.168.0.1 -p 3128 mgr:info >> test.php
    client: ERROR: Cannot connect to 192.168.0.1:3128: Operation timed out
    
    

    I've doubled checked, and the port is correct.

    Edit 2:

    Even this times out:

    squidclient mgr:info
    client: ERROR: Cannot connect to [::1]:3128: Operation timed out
    


  • You're sure that Squid is running??



  • @KOM:

    You're sure that Squid is running??

    AFAIK, yes. And according to ps -aux.



  • I've never seen that before.  You have Squid listening on port 3128?  Any thing of note in your System log?



  • Yes, it's on 3128.. forgot to say that it is listening on a bridged interface. Could that be the reason it's "time outing"? I haven't opened any ports or so.
    The only rules I have is to let the Bridge to WIFI and LAN net.



  • I can't imagine that bridged mode would affect the squidclient running on the local server.

    Do you have anything in Services - Proxy server - Local Cache - External Cache-Managers?  If not, try putting 127.0.0.1; LAN_IP_Address there, save and see if it makes a difference.  For example, I use:

    127.0.0.1; 10.10.4.1

    where 10.10.4.1 is my pfSense LAN IP address.

    where 10.10.4.1 is my pfSense LAN IP address.

    External Cache-Manager was empty, added my IPs now tho..

    I've noticed that when I google something, and hit a link, it takes +30 seconds to leave Google for the new link.. What could be the reason for this?

    Edit: And how do I get rid of the local hits on "Real Time"? I have added the WAN and LAN IP at "Do not cache", but it still floods 'squid_monitor_data.php'



  • Usually long delays in the cache process are due to DNS issues.  Shell in and run:

    squidclient -h Your_pfSense_LAN-IP -p 3128 mgr:info
    

    For for Median Service Times section.  Look for long delays relative to the other counters.

    I don't have an answer to your real-time question.

    I dont know if this is good or bad? Do you want to look for more info?
    Some sites (like Google, and Wikipedia in particular, as I said before) can really be a b*tch sometimes..



  • I am bumping the post above:

    Is the result of that info good or bad? I am not really that familiar with squid3 yet, and not sure how to tweak it.



  • Nothing really out of the ordinary.  It really depends on what you're loading.  For instance, you can go to a site like CacheFly and download one of their 1 or 10 MB test files, and do it again and watch it come out of the cache.  But for websites these days there is a lot of dynamic content that is generated on the fly, with file names that change based on hashes, or web mechanics that force reloading or prevent caching, etc.  I must admit that I've never seen a zero before for hits if there is web activity for a reasonable amount of time.

    If you really want to know, check your access.log(s) in /var/log/squid and search for hits there.  The manager info display only shows the last hour of data.



  • I have seen cases like this one, the fix have been most of the time re-create cache dirs…

    Before first stop squid, next delete cache dirs and finally create again the cache dirs.

    squid -k

    Test, test, test.

    TIP: Don't use UFS is really old use AUFS.

    Memory cache size: 0
    This is the amount of physical RAM (in megabytes) to be used for negative cache and in-transit objects. This value should not exceed more than 50% of the installed RAM. The minimum value is 1MB.

    Up this to at least some value other than 0.

    Hello again, and sorry if I bump this thread, but I can't get this out of my head.
    I just recently installed a 120GB HDD, using it for squid-cache. I changed some settings to;

    Low-water-mark in %: 90
    High-water-mark in %: 95
    Enable offline mode: Off
    Hard disk cache size: 95000 (mb) (was 5000)
    Hard disk cache system: UFS
    Minimum object size: 0
    Maximum object size: 2048 (kb) (was 512000)

    Memory cache size: 1647 mb (was 0 mb)
    Maximum object size in RAM: 32 (kb)
    Memory replacement policy: Head LFUDA (was HEAD GDSF)
    Cache Dynamic Content: On

    When I do cat /var/squid/logs/access.log | grep HIT , 99,99% of the HITs are http://www.google.com/cast. It feels like I missed something important.



  • @rocketdog:

    Edit: And how do I get rid of the local hits on "Real Time"? I have added the WAN and LAN IP at "Do not cache", but it still floods 'squid_monitor_data.php'

    I was able to stop this by adding a proxy exception for the firewall IP on the windows computer I'm using.
    (Internet Properties -> Connections -> LAN settings -> Advanced)

    As for no HITS, I found that binding squid to localhost caused it to MISS everything.  Removing the localhost binding caused squid to start functioning correctly again.  No idea why….

    I also found that squid didn't like to use the disk cache at all until it was rebuilt.  I probably re-booted the router while the initial creating of directories was happening...  I used:

    
    squid -k shutdown
    squid -z -S
