I'm trying to test if squid is working or not, but it doesn't seem to be, although my methodology could be wrong.
I set "maximum object size" to 10000k. Then I downloaded firefox from mozilla.com. After doing this, I checked /var/squid/cache, and the size increased by about 5MB. Good. Then I deleted the browser cache and tried again using the same url. The download speed was no faster than before (150KB/s). After the download was complete this log entry was written:
1210564836.025 40647 192.168.2.5 TCP_HIT/200 6039471 GET http://ftp-mozilla.netscape.com/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/184.108.40.206/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%220.127.116.11.exe - NONE/- application/octet-stream
It says it was a HIT… but was it really? The download should have been at LAN speeds, not typical ADSL speeds.
Any ideas on how to further test this to be sure it's working?
Ah, could the traffic shaper be limiting my bandwidth? That would make more sense….
Same for me. I'm not sure the issue. I know mine is working as I often see 5 MByte/sec within our office when we only have 3 MBit bandwidth. I'll keep an eye out for other sites not being served from cache.
I've the same thing. When I go to sites were are pictures to download with a slideshow, and I go back to the same URL, it seems that the pictures are not comming from the proxy but directly from the internet.
Can this be a bug?
