Yes, this is a real problem ? For your information, my users here are
used to utilize DAP or Flashget for download. As long as I know, when we
are using Flashget, for downloading one big file the Flashget would
initiate several threads in downloading portions of the files.=20
Of course, one of the workarounds is to limit connection number for your
clients in squid.conf, but this would be troublesome when you user tried
to open several browsers at once.

Anyone can clarify this ? Is the delaypool limitation for the whole
squid client computer or only apply for each of connection of the PC
initiated to squid ?
