CMS Conditions Data Access using FroNTier The CMS experiment at the LHC has established an infrastructure using the FroNTier framework to deliver conditions (i.e. calibration, alignment, etc.) data to processing clients worldwide. FroNTier is a simple web service approach providing client HTTP access to a central database service. The system for CMS has been developed to work with POOL which provides object relational mapping between the C++ clients and various database technologies. Because of the read only nature of the data, Squid proxy caching servers are maintained near clients and these caches provide high performance data access. Jul 2007

Using the Squid Reverse Proxy to Improve eZ Publish Performance Squid is an Open Source proxy application that can also be used as a reverse proxy. The difference between a proxy and a reverse proxy is that a proxy delivers content from multiple webservers to one user, while a reverse proxy delivers content from one webserver to multiple users. For example, a normal proxy might be used to provide a degree of anonymity to a user or to access servers that would otherwise be blocked; the proxy would access many other servers on the user's behalf. On the other hand, one of the reasons for using a reverse proxy is to speed up the delivery of content to all visitors of a particular server. This article shows how to use Squid with eZ Publish to improve the performance of your website. Jan 2007

Squid Proxy Analysis The SPA project analyzes Web access characteristics and their impact on Web proxy-caches. Specifically, we're intereste d in what impacts proxy hit rate, what hit rates are achievable, and how cache size, request rate, user population, and oth er characteristics affect those hit rates. We achieve this by simulating a trace from an actual proxy-cache on a cache of d ifferent size. The trace can be reduced to simulate a different request rate. Jul 1997
