Re: Squid 3 -> allow direct and exclude from caching

Re: Squid 3 -> allow direct and exclude from caching

Its cached anyway - http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/config/always_direct/



NOTE: This directive is not related to caching. The replies is cached as usual even if you use always_direct. To not cache the replies see no_cache


In Squid 3 no_cache is changed to cache - http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/cfgman/cache.html

so use:
cache deny ACL

acl url dstdomain .domain.net
always_direct allow url
cache deny url

This should be correct.
Just make some tests and see store.log file.

You should have an entry with SWAPOUT - http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/SquidLogs?highlight=(SWAPOUT)#head-513c454f63441d21b525e5888cb7ba917fdacbde

Ops, SWAPOUT is used only if the object is cached.
