Hello,

When squidclient is used in ping mode, e.g.

/usr/local/squid/bin/squidclient -g 5 -h 209.145.208.8 -p 8939
http://216.19.43.110
2004-03-01 11:33:11 [1]: 0.131 secs, 7.557252 KB/s
2004-03-01 11:33:12 [2]: 0.001 secs, 997.000000 KB/s
2004-03-01 11:33:13 [3]: 0.001 secs, 997.000000 KB/s
2004-03-01 11:33:14 [4]: 0.001 secs, 997.000000 KB/s
2004-03-01 11:33:15 [5]: 0.001 secs, 997.000000 KB/s

what is actually being pinged here?

I know this site (http://216.19.43.110) is not in the squid cache on
209.145.208.8.

When I ping 216.19.43.110 from the host, I get:

[root@dot8 root]# ping 216.19.43.110
PING 216.19.43.110 (216.19.43.110) from 209.145.208.8 : 56(84) bytes of

64 bytes from 216.19.43.110: icmp_seq=1 ttl=247 time=48.5 ms

64 bytes from 216.19.43.110: icmp_seq=3 ttl=247 time=35.6 ms

Can someone explain what squidclient in ping mode is doing and how I can
interpret it's output?


Thanks,
