Slow squid performance
« on: April 22, 2007, 11:41:05 AM »
Hello
New to this forum
Hope every one fine and enjoing the .......................

Here my problem is i am using squid  cache on dsl 256k

working i see it in logs

But it is  is slower then direct isp proxy

To be more clear when my client use my  cache in proxy it slow down the browsing
And if use isp proxy it is four or five time faster
I think it must be revesed
I tried single also cache_peer
my squid.conf
==============Isp proxy
cache_peer proxy.abc.com parent 8080 3130 weight=10 no-query round-robin no-digest no-net#db-exchange no-delay

You seems to have a lots of tweak done yourself before asking in the forum.

give me sometime so that I can examine your config and can sort out the most possible issue.

Thank you!!

I think the problem starts right from the begining. You have specified
Quote
cache_peer proxy.abc.com parent 8080 3130 weight=10 no-query round-robin no-digest no-net#db-exchange no-delay

first of all you are saying that you want "round-robin" but then you are giving "weight=10" also.  Secondly, you are saying "no-query" but on the other hand you are giving "ICP / UDP port as 3130" ..
Little confusing ?

I think you should start fresh with minimalistic configuration ie.
follow my quick how to on squid configuration & tell me what are your current observations.
else is just fine.. and seems (as I said earlier..) you tried a to tweak already :)

Thanks for HELP

first #icp_port 3130
It is uncomented so not working
 if remove the weight  it runs roundrobin fast  and even before completing the page it jumps to other

other thing i first tried that as on your first HOWTO
the result is same
even to day i  remove the weight
In this case the access.log shows that they are only using first peer and never go second
I also try with out round robin the same thing happen
and with both commands weight and round robin it work with both
and in all setchuations but slow in all way
The same thing happen
works faster with direct isp in client pc  and work slow wia squid
here the diagram of lan
lan and clients are in same hub server address is used as proxy in clients with one NC
browsing with server system pc redhat 9.0 browsing is very good with or without isp proxy /
Thanks

I was talking about 3130 port which you have mentioned in cache_peer. its there actually telling proxy to use that port to determine parent cache's availibility & authenticity. Try removing that from cache_peer directive.

May I also get 10-20 lines of access.log !

sir
the port is removed and still same position
once i visit one of our sister company they are also using this squid but same 512 line it shows very fast the viewd  urls are in no time they get and all isp are same

i check that they have lot hof hit not miss 

unfortunatly i am unable to see the squid,conf there
just on req they show me the access log only

I hope we over come with little discusion
Not in hurry take your time use little of your free time only
Thanks

Well,
A while ago.. 2 years ago .. I had too problem of slow cache ie. squid and lots of tcp_miss .. So that time I tried a lots of things.. including changing filesystem reiserfs , changing file descriptor limits, changing squid thread limts and few other things..

You may try this who is addressing similar thing.. ofcourse you dont have to follow exactly but try to do tweaking this way too.. (I must say that its a nice tutorial)

OK
Then can i go back to default  squid,conf

and try one by one
