slow proxy with limit of maxchildren of dansguardian
« on: December 31, 2015, 11:49:36 am »
hello,

I am using zentyal mainly for http proxy, dansguardian and DNS. Number of user is 600.
I had tried all setting to improve performance of proxy.
Can any one know how to set maxchildren value more then 1000 in dansguardian configuration.

thanks.

There's a config key for that on /etc/zentyal/squid.conf

Dansguardian Ubuntu compilation sets the limit to 999. If you want to entend this value you will need to compile DG yourself

Hello:

Compiling is not an easy task for a Linux novice user, not sure if this is your case. There are several docs on how to compile software over the internet. You will have to tackle with libraries dependencies, and version dependencies and so on.

This being said, you could follow my guide on compiling squid http://labs.zentyal.org/https-transparent-proxy-in-zentyal/ so you can have a brief view on how to compile a particular software. For further info please google it for you as compiling software is beyond the scope of this forum

Lets say if we go for Zentyal Commercial Edition is there any way to increase this value  OR Zentyal technical support has any patch for this.

Hello, no, Zentyal commercial edition does not support custom compiled packages
