Server :: Monitor The Current Bandwidth In Use By A User (NCSA Auth) On Squid?

Jan 29, 2010

Is there anyway to monitor the current bandwidth in use by a user (NCSA auth) on squid? Occasionally we get a user downloading too many videos at once, which blocks bandwidth to other users on the network. As I have no idea which user it is until the end of the day (SARG reports), we just restart the squid server to disconnect their downloads.

Server :: Squid Ncsa Auth Not Working?

Jan 20, 2011

I want to use squid Proxy to ask username password to user for internet usage and if username password not correct squid stops user access.I use following installation commands and configuration but still squid not asking for username password, and I can use Internet browsing by defining proxy in my client proxy.I use following installataion commands one by one but non of them works, and configure squid to use ncsa_auth../configure --enable-delay-pools --enable-linux-netfilter --enable-arp-acl --disable-ident-lookups --enable-snmp --enable-removal-policies

then I use

./configure --enable-delay-pools --enable-linux-netfilter --enable-arp-acl --disable-ident-lookups --enable-snmp --enable-removal-policies --enable-basic-auth-helpers

then I use

./configure --enable-delay-pools --enable-linux-netfilter --enable-arp-acl --disable-ident-lookups --enable-snmp --enable-removal-policies --enable-basic-auth-helpers=NCSA

with following squid.conf configuration one by one.

htpasswd /usr/local/squid/etc/passwd testuser
New password:
Re-type new password:


No error received in access.log or /var/logs/messages files, nor on client screen, client still using internet browsing without asking username password by squid,

Server :: Does Squid Automatically Split Bandwidth Between Connected Clients

Oct 1, 2009

Does squid automatically split bandwidth between connected clients? I'm wondering if someone was downloading a lot of data and someone else connected whether it would split the access 50:50 between them? I have 1 user that is using a lot of bandwidth but the server doesn't seem to split it up between all connected clients so others are receiving slow access. I don't have this client's IP address but I do have ncsa auth connected. Will delay_pools work with an ncsa username?

Server :: Monitor When Users Get Too Much For Bandwidth?

May 17, 2010

when the server is getting overloaded with users. At present I run the server mainly as a proxy server with about 100 users. The bandwidth at the data centre is 100Mbps connection with total bandwidth used last month = 17431.16 MB

I would like to add a VPN in future but feel that this might overload the bandwidth as instead of it just being web traffic it will the entire client TCP connections. I would like to monitor this before it gets to the stage where users are complaining but not sure how to gauge whether the proxy is being overloaded. It is used mainly for video traffic.

Alternatively how can allow certain IPs to have higher bandwidth access.

Server :: Limiting A Sub-user's Bandwidth?

Jan 27, 2011

I run Debian 64-bit. I host GameServers on my machine. Yesterday, some corrupt files or error in configurations of one of the game-servers caused my whole system to destabilize. On checking, I saw one of the Gameserver's console giving Net_sendpacket spam errors. I disabled that server and things were fine then. It used up more than 100GB of my bandwidth in just 12 hours.

I deleted the server and copied all the files over again to fix that error. Now I want a prevention to this, if just in case it happens again. I want to limit a sub-user's bandwidth in Linux. Like if I want a user only to use 10GB bandwidth per month + not more than 5MB/second. Is there any way to do it?

Networking :: In PPTP Server - Limit Bandwidth Per User & No. Of Connection Per Account?

Apr 2, 2010

recently i rent a xen vps intended to setup a PPTPD vpn server for me and my friends. so we can by-pass the great firewall in china and get back on ....., facebook and stuff. i have already setup the server and i can connect to it without any problem. but i still want to do some further configuration the server:

1. i want to limit the bandwidth to 400k/s per connection.
2. i also want to limit the max connection per user a/c

i have some thoughts on the 2nd requirement. in the user configuration file of /etc/ppp/chap-secret, you can specify the range of ip the user can get, does it limit the max connection per user a/c? or they can connect anyway, just every now and then a box pop up says conflict in IP address?

Debian :: How Does Squid Handle Bandwidth Distribution

Jun 17, 2009

Can squid do 'fair bandwidth sharing' ? What i mean is, if there is 1 user online on a 4mg line, that user will be using the entire 4mg line speed, and if there are 2 users online, each user will have 2mg line speed, and so on. I have squid cache set up already, but i just need to know how bandwidth distribution/sharing can be handled Can squid also be used to limit/disconnect users after they have used up their allotted bandwidth? [I have a mikrotik router connected to the adsl (for wireless users)]
