Name

log_fqdn

Synopsis

This directive controls whether or not Squid places client IP addresses or hostnames in the log files. By default Squid writes the IP address. If you enable this feature, Squid queries the DNS for client hostnames or fully qualified domain names (FQDN). These address-to-name lookups sometimes take a long time. Squid never postpones logging to wait for an answer. If the FQDN isn’t available when Squid is ready to write the log entry, it uses the IP address.
