Download Quota with Squid?

Post by JM » Fri, 14 Apr 2006 03:12:37



Hello,

I'm using Squid as proxy server with LDAP authentification.
I would like to know if it is possible to set download quota with Squid or
Squidguard.

If someone could help me...
Thanks JM.

Well, since the main function of Squid is to minimise the web traffic
from the Internet, what use would that be ?
Any quota would ideally count against every user.

Unless you want to be able to meter your clients, which can be done in
several ways.

 
 
 

1. Quotas : Format of quota.users & quota.groups ?

Hi,

I am running Linux-FT with kernel 1.2.13 and quota patches. I would like
to enable quotas in order to control memory usage by apps (I'm trying to
debug an app that keeps grabbing all system memory, preventing me from
typing kill).

In order to enable quotas, files called quota.users and quota.groups
need to be present in the root directory. The 'edquota'
program is supposed to be used to set these up, but it simply invokes vi,
expecting the user to know the file format. The man pages say that
the file format is 'inscrutable', but don't actually describe it anywhere!

Anyone know the correct format ?

Thanks in advance,

Steve
