i would imagine that every installation of Squid on linux is interested in
having _realistic transaction logs_ of exactly how much data was received
and transmitted on a TCP connection.

i know of many many folk who use transaction logs from HTTP caches for
volume-based billing.
right now, those bills are anywhere between 10% to 25% incorrect.

you call that "extremely limited"?


of course, i am doing exactly what Dave said to do -- maintaining my own
out-of-kernel patch -- but its a pain, i'm sure it will soon conflict with
stuff and is a damn shame - it isn't much code, but Dave seems pretty
steadfast that he isn't interested.

damn shame that. i think the information is on par with
getsockopt(..,TCP_INFO,..) in terms of usefulness yet TCP_INFO is there in
the kernel.


cheers,

lincoln.
