We have about 735 clients with windows 98 SE and Windows XP (joined to domain) Windows 7 and 8 and etc. and have about 35 servers and internet connections and cache servers that one of them is Squid beside Router (CISCO) and related protocol is WCCP is enabled.

WCCP enabled on Router Cisco and squid

because often squid crashed i configured in Cisco that when squid inaccessible automatically internet connected to my network. and bypass squid.

is there any way to configure that when my server crashed this server restart automatically?

or any other ways to resolve this problem?

The Squid proxy sends a WCCP packet to the router every 10 seconds to tell the router that the proxy is alive and ready to receive web requests – saber tabatabaee yazdi Nov 5 '12 at 9:42

Why not just restart squid? e.g. using nagios or daemontools.

Daemontools just manages a running process while nagios provides a scheduling engine and reporting framework. – symcbean Nov 6 '12 at 8:53
