squid2 (net/squid2) Add to my watchlist

advanced proxy caching server for http, https, ftp, gopher

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests. Squid 2.x is an old release series, which is mostly obsolete but still has a few features that have not yet been ported to 6.x.
