Obsolete:ICP agent

From Wikitech
Jump to: navigation, search

ICP agent can be used as ICP responder in squid-apache web server cluster. It does delay requests to frontend caches at high loads and might be remotely turned on or off.

Options

  • -d - daemonize
  • -m - enable remote management
  • -p # - port number to listen at
  • -t # - static delay time in milliseconds, defaults to 5.0
    use negative number to send icp misses only
    supports 0.1ms adjustments by varying the response times over ten
    requests +/- 1ms to get the desired average.

Remote management

echoping -i agent://enable webserver:3130
echoping -i agent://disable webserver:3130

ToDo: make timings adjustable using the same mechanism?
