This page describes how to configure a Squid server with shoal-agent.

Install Squid

If you don't already have Squid installed and configured, follow (these instructions are specific to the frontier-squid repackaging of squid).

Install shoal-agent


shoal-agent configuration

shoal_agent.conf should have:

amqp_server_url =
amqp_port = 5672

You can also set log_file=/var/log/shoal_agent.log and chown the log file to the appropriate user.

Squid Configuration

The modus operandi when using Shoal is to allow client connections to the squid from anywhere, but restrict destinations to the known CVMFS servers. See

You should end up with something like:

acl NET_LOCAL src
acl RESTRICT_DEST dstdom_regex ^|cvmfs-stratum-one\.cern\.ch|cernvmfs\.gridpp\.rl\.ac\.uk|cvmfs\.racf\.bnl\.gov|cvmfs\.fnal\.gov|cvmfs02\.grid\.sinica\.edu\.tw|$
http_access deny !RESTRICT_DEST
