<p><b><big>Initializing Squid Configuration</big></b><br>
</p>
Medium
<p><b><big>Aborting Initialization:</big></b><br>
Safely abort the configuration utility by pressing <b>Abort</b> now.</p>
Medium
<p><b><big>Saving Squid Configuration</big></b><br>
</p>
Medium
<p><b><big>Aborting Saving:</big></b><br>
Abort the save procedure by pressing <b>Abort</b>.
An additional dialog informs whether it is safe to do so.

Medium
<p><b><big>Squid Configuration</big></b><br>
Configure Squid here.<br></p>
Medium
<p><b><big>Squid Configuration Overview</big></b><br>
Obtain an overview of installed squids and
edit their configurations if necessary.<br></p>
Medium
<p>Define all ports where Squid will
listen for clients' http requests.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Host</b> can contain a hostname or IP address
or remain empty.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Refresh Patterns</b> define how Squid treats the objects in the cache.</p>
Medium
<p>The refresh patterns are checked in the order listed here.
The first matching entry is used.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Min</b> determines how long (in minutes) an object should be
considered fresh if no explicit expiry time is given.
Medium
<p><b>Percent</b> is the percentage of the object's age (time since last
modification). An object without explicit expiry time will be
considered fresh.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Max</b> is the upper limit of how long objects without an explicit
expiry time will be considered fresh.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Cache memory</b> defines the ideal amount of memory to be used for objects.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Max Object Size</b> defines the maximum size for objects to be stored
on the disk. Objects larger than this size will not be saved on disk.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Min Object Size</b> specifies the minimum size for objects. Smaller
objects will not be saved to the disk.</p>
Medium
<p>Replacement begins when the swap (disk) usage is above the
<b>Swap Low-Water Mark</b> and attempts to maintain utilization near the
<b>Swap Low-Water Mark</b>. As swap utilization gets close to
<b>Swap High-Water Mark</b>, object eviction becomes more aggressive.
If utilization is close to the <b>Swap Low-Water Mark</b>, less replacement
is done each time.
Medium
<p><b>Cache Replacement Policy</b> determines which objects are to be replaced
when disk space is needed.
<b>Memory Replacement Policy</b> specifies the policy for object replacement in
memory when space for new objects is not available.
Policies could be:
<table>
<tr>
<td>lru</td>
<td>least recently used</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>heap GDSF</td>
<td>Greedy-Dual Size Frequency</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>heap LFUDA</td>
<td>Least Frequently Used with Dynamic Aging</td>
<tr>
<tr>
<td>heap LRU</td>
<td>lru policy implemented using a heap</td>
</tr>
</table>
</p>
Medium
<p><b>Directory Name</b> defines a top-level directory where cache swap files will be stored.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Size</b> defines the amount of disk space (in MB) to use under this directory.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Level 1 Directories</b> defines a number of first-level subdirectories,
which will be created under the <b>Directory Name</b> directory.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Level 2 Directories</b> defines a number of second-level subdirectories,
which will be created under each first-level directory.</p>
Medium
<p>Access to the Squid server can be controlled via <b>ACL Groups</b>.</p>
Medium
<p><b>ACL Group</b> has various types and the description of ACL Group depends
on the particular type.</p>
Medium
<p>In the <b>Access Control</b> table, access can be denied or allowed to ACL Groups.
If there are more ACL Groups in one line, it means that access will be allowed
or denied to members who belong to all ACL Groups at the same time.</p>
Medium
<p>The <b>Access Control</b> table is checked in the order listed here.
The first matching entry is used.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Access Log</b> defines the file in which client activities are logged.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Cache Log</b> defines the file in which general information about your
cache's behavior is logged.</p>
Medium
<p><b>Cache Store Log</b> defines the location of the transaction log of all
objects that are stored in the object store, as well as the time when an object
gets deleted. This option can be left empty.</p>
