Squid Cache for debian ubuntu apt get and BSD ports collections

August 1st, 2007

I'm using squid's caching capabilities to save copies of debian packages and the sources used by the bsd ports collections. Here's what I did:

  • Adjusted a few squid parameters:
    • low maximum_object_size_in_memory (128 KB) setting, to use memory only for web browsing.
    • large maximum_object_size (256 MB)
    • big cache_dir (8500)
    • cache_replacement_policy to "heap LFUDA"
  • Set all cache clients to the same sources, and set HTTP_PROXY and FTP_PROXY to squid address and port
