Squid proxy acceleration

    Hello.
    We have just installed Squid proxy in acceleration mode (reverse proxy) on our non-cpanel server. The idea is to direct high load sites through the proxy to keep our main server's load lower.

    We started to test this solution and hope it will provide some extra performance as promised on Squid's website.

    You can read more at: SquidFaq/ReverseProxy - Squid Web Proxy Wiki

    One thing is bothering me now. How will the bandwidth get counted when using proxy :confused: ? As I understand it when 10 users connect to one of accelerated sites the proxy should provide all the data with only one connection to our cPanel server. This means that cPanel will calculate improper bandwidth. Anyone has a solution to this? Maybe someone has a similar configuration?

    Is your SQUID reverse proxy running in your non cPanel-based server configured to act as a reverse proxy to your cPanel-based servers ?

    Yes. That is exactly how it is configured.
