I have squid proxy server running on ubuntu. I wrote set of rules for acl including something like:

acl exceeded_users proxy_auth "/etc/squid/users/exceeded"
http_access deny exceeded_users all_dst

if any user exceed the bandwidth limit then his name will transfer to exceeded list. but the problem is to apply this change i need to restart squid. Is there any way to apply like these changes automatically without restarting squid.

Thanks in advance


Running squid -k reconfigure will cause it to reload the configuration without restarting.

You can use incron to monitor your /etc/squid/users/exceeded list to automatically trigger the reconfigure command whenever that file is written to.
