Feature: Request Buffering

  • Goal: Add configuration option to have Squid buffer requests with bodies, to remove burden of slow clients from back-end servers (usually for accelerator deployments).

  • Status: Started

  • ETA: late October, 2008

  • Version: 2.8

  • Developer: AdrianChadd

  • More:


Buffering to memory is easiest, but will require a config option that controls the max per-request memory used for buffering (e.g., request_buffer 8 KB would buffer up to 8K of a request body, then go forward whether or not the whole body has been received).

Buffering to disk would be more complex to implement, but would probably be more robust.
