Name

redirector_bypass

Synopsis

Squid uses a pool of redirectors to service client requests. This directive determines Squid’s behavior when all redirectors in the pool are busy. Normally, Squid queues subsequent requests, waiting for one of the redirectors to become free. If the queue becomes too large, Squid exits with a fatal message. If you enable this directive, however, Squid simply skips the redirection step if all redirectors are busy.
