Meaning of squid code used in access.log
« on: January 06, 2005, 02:36:06 PM »
Well below are the meaning of codes used by squid in access.log ,I have posted here as most the time also need them :D .. so now other can also benefitted.

TCP_HIT
A valid copy of the requested object was in the cache.

TCP_MISS
The requested object was not in the cache.

TCP_REFRESH_HIT
The requested object was cached but STALE. The IMS query for the object resulted in "304 not modified".

TCP_REF_FAIL_HIT
The requested object was cached but STALE. The IMS query failed and the stale object was delivered.

TCP_REFRESH_MISS
The requested object was cached but STALE. The IMS query returned the new content.

TCP_CLIENT_REFRESH_MISS
The client issued a "no-cache" pragma, or some analogous cache control command along with the request. Thus, the cache has to refetch the object.

TCP_IMS_HIT
The client issued an IMS request for an object which was in the cache and fresh.

TCP_SWAPFAIL_MISS
The object was believed to be in the cache, but could not be accessed.

TCP_NEGATIVE_HIT
Request for a negatively cached object, e.g. "404 not found", for which the cache believes to know that it is inaccessible. Also refer to the explainations for negative_ttl in your squid.conf file.

TCP_MEM_HIT
A valid copy of the requested object was in the cache and it was in memory, thus avoiding disk accesses.

TCP_DENIED
Access was denied for this request.

TCP_OFFLINE_HIT
The requested object was retrieved from the cache during offline mode. The offline mode never validates any object, see offline_mode in squid.conf file.

UDP_HIT
A valid copy of the requested object was in the cache.

UDP_MISS
The requested object is not in this cache.

UDP_DENIED
Access was denied for this request.

UDP_INVALID
An invalid request was received.

UDP_MISS_NOFETCH
During "-Y" startup, or during frequent failures, a cache in hit only mode will return either UDP_HIT or this code. Neighbours will thus only fetch hits.

NONE
Seen with errors and cachemgr requests.


The following codes are no longer available in Squid-2:


ERR_*
Errors are now contained in the status code.

TCP_CLIENT_REFRESH
See: TCP_CLIENT_REFRESH_MISS.

TCP_SWAPFAIL
See: TCP_SWAPFAIL_MISS.

TCP_IMS_MISS
Deleted, TCP_IMS_HIT used instead.

UDP_HIT_OBJ
Hit objects are no longer available.

UDP_RELOADING
See: UDP_MISS_NOFETCH.

If anyone wants to add something then they are most welcome :) I mean related to squid codes..

From sometime I noticed my Squid cache has been reporting a lot of "TCP_SWAPFAIL_MISS" in the access log.
From what ive read around the net, this isnt meant to be internal squid problems or the problem with the cache corruption.

I have deleted the entire cache and rebuild it, but no luck :)

WHat could cause this ? or what I should do to avoid this?

thanks
Nikesh
