squidview(1) program to monitor your squid's access.log




This manual page documents briefly the squidview application. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has a brief online help (Press "h").

squidview is a ncurses-based application which allows you to view and monitor your squid's access.log in a very comfortable way. Additionally you can create reports and statistics.


Squidview is configured by the contents of the directory ~/.squidview/. On first execution it creates the necessary files. The Debian-version has been modified to match the default log-path of Debian's squid package /var/log/squid/access.log). If you have the permission to read this file (ie be in group proxy), squidview should work out of the box. If not, file a bug against this package (squidview, obviously :-)).


This program ignores any command-line parameters.
