THIS MODULE IS OBSOLETE.
USE THE PYTHON ONE - IT SUPPORTS MULTIPLE JOBS AND IT IS MORE EFFICIENT

The plugin will monitor a squid server.

It will produce 4 charts:

  1. Squid Client Bandwidth in kbps
  • in
  • out
  • hits
  1. Squid Client Requests in requests/sec
  • requests
  • hits
  • errors
  1. Squid Server Bandwidth in kbps
  • in
  • out
  1. Squid Server Requests in requests/sec
  • requests
  • errors

autoconfig

The plugin will by itself detect squid servers running on
localhost, on ports 3128 or 8080.

It will attempt to download URLs in the form:

  • cache_object://HOST:PORT/counters
  • /squid-internal-mgr/counters

If any succeeds, it will use this.

configuration

If you need to configure it by hand, create the file
/etc/netdata/squid.conf with the following variables:

  • squid_host=IP the IP of the squid host
  • squid_port=PORT the port the squid is listening
  • squid_url="URL" the URL with the statistics to be fetched from squid
  • squid_timeout=SECONDS how much time we should wait for squid to respond
  • squid_update_every=SECONDS the frequency of the data collection

Example /etc/netdata/squid.conf:

squid_host=127.0.0.1
squid_port=3128
squid_url="cache_object://127.0.0.1:3128/counters"
squid_timeout=2
squid_update_every=5
