Package details

Summary: The Squid proxy caching server

Description:
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting
FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects over IPv4 or IPv6. Unlike traditional
caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking,
asynchronous process.
Squid keeps meta data and especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS
lookups, supports non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching
of failed requests. Squid supports SSL, extensive access controls, and full
request logging. By using the lightweight Internet Cache Protocol (ICP) and
HTTP Cache Protocol (HTCP) Squid caches can be arranged in a hierarchy or
mesh for additional bandwidth savings.

Install squid if you need a proxy caching server.

This package defaults to a maximum of 8192 filedescriptors. You
can change these values at build time by using for example:

--define 'maxfiles 4096'

The package was built to support a maximum of 8192 filedescriptors.

You can build squid with some conditional build swithes;

(ie. use with rpm --rebuild):
