Name

read_timeout

Synopsis

This timeout applies to server connections (between Squid and origin servers or neighbor caches). If Squid doesn’t receive any data for this amount of time, it closes the connection. If the user hasn’t yet received any part of the response, Squid generates a “read timeout” error message.
