Feature: Gzip compression / decompression in Squid

  • Goal: To make Squid capable of compressing or decompressing objects in transit.

  • Status: a partial 3rd-party solution exists, needs testing

  • Version: 3.1

  • Developer:

  • More: 3rd party eCAP module


An eCAP module developed by Constantin Rack at VIGOS to support gzip compression of text/html cache misses is available. That 3rd-party module has not been tested by the Squid Project.

An old, unfinished Squid v3.0 patch implements some of the required functionality directly in Squid.
