Name

digest_rebuild_period

Synopsis

The digest rebuild period is how often Squid generates the digest of its own cache. This is a fairly CPU-intensive procedure, so you don’t want to run it too often. On the other hand, the digest becomes less representative of Squid’s contents as more time passes.
