Squid configuration directive hopeless_kid_revival_delay

Available in: 4  

History:

Changes to hopeless_kid_revival_delay in Squid-4:

New directive to set a cool-down delay reviving a child process if the process is encountering frequent deaths.

This directive is not available in the 3.5 version of Squid.

For older versions than 3.3 see the linked pages above

Configuration Details:

Option Name:hopeless_kid_revival_delay
Replaces:
Requires:
Default Value:hopeless_kid_revival_delay 1 hour
Suggested Config:

	Normally, when a kid process dies, Squid immediately restarts the
	kid. A kid experiencing frequent deaths is marked as "hopeless" for
	the duration specified by this directive. Hopeless kids are not
	automatically restarted.

	Currently, zero values are not supported because they result in
	misconfigured SMP Squid instances running forever, endlessly
	restarting each dying kid. To effectively disable hopeless kids
	revival, set the delay to a huge value (e.g., 1 year).

	Reconfiguration also clears all hopeless kids designations, allowing
	for manual revival of hopeless kids.
