cache_object:// URI Scheme
The cache_object is the URI scheme which defines a naming structure suitable for referring to Cache Manager Objects. The scheme specific part is defined as below:
hostname - server where the target Cache Manager resides.
request - name of the action that should be executed.
password - pass-phrase for access-controlled actions.
If request is not specified, the default is menu, which will enumerate all available actions. The password is only required for pages that require it.
Squid-3.1 and later all accept HTTP Basic authentication credentials instead of a URL-based password. Use the WWW-Authenticate: header to pass the password.
cache_object://localhost/ - refers the menu action.
cache_object://machineA/info - refers the info action at machineA.
cache_object://10.1.2.3/config@badpass - points to the config action using the badpass pass-phrase.
