squid3 (net/squid3) 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 3.x is the latest release series that does not need a C++11 compiler to build.
