is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, I/O-driven process.
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.
supports SSL, extensive access controls, and full request
logging. By using the lightweight Internet Cache Protocol,
caches can be arranged in a hierarchy or mesh for additional
consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System
lookup program dnsserver, some optional programs for rewriting
requests and performing authentication, and some management and client
tools. When squid starts up, it spawns a configurable number of
dnsserver processes, each of which can perform a single, blocking
Domain Name System (DNS) lookup. This reduces the amount of time the
cache waits for DNS lookups.
