Squid with CARP load balancing
Is anyone using Squid with CARP peers?
In a nutshell, I have a group of Squid proxy/cache servers working fine (on Centos 5), but I want to move away from my primitive (awful) hashing algorithm in my PAC/WPAD files to a proper load balanced system.
I've read that CARP can provide a solution, but can't get it to work.
I've gone through the obvious documentation I could find, but I'm frustrated at the lack of explanation of key points (why would you use sibling instead of parents in your CARP array, for instance).
I'm adding cache_peer lines to my squid.conf, but my peer servers aren't receiving any directed traffic. i.e. I've done something wrong.
