and cachevideo freeze ... i need to restart squid OR kill all videocache proccess .. after doing .. works...
This is a known problem and I am working on it. I think I'll be able to fix this by next version.
Thank you for using videocache :)
I never seen this errors (1.6, 1.7 and 1.8 versions) when using:
squid -k rotate squid -k reconfigure
I used many years squidguard as redirector and I haven't any problems restarting its child processes whith these squid commands.
But squidguard makes only URL filtering, so its actions are very fast and child processes are quickly refreshed.
videocache has the XMLRC server and can have video downloading if I well understud. In consequence, it is more difficult to know if all videocache tasks are finished.
Sometimes I had doubts in these situations and at my FreeBSD proxy I made:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/squid stop ps –uU squid killall -u squid /usr/local/etc/rc.d/squid start
The "ps" and "killall" lines are to ensure that all the processes owned by the user "squid" are finished. "squid stop" should be sufficient because redirectors are child processes of squid daemon.
I will modify my (midnight) maintenance squid script to don't use squid -k rotate …
Under normal conditions you don't really face this problem, but XMLRPC does create problems sometime due to unclean exit. Anyway it should not happen with 1.8.
To get around this problem until it is fixed I'm using this script:
$ cat /usr/local/bin/squid-reconfigure #!/bin/bash echo "Reconfiguring Squid without Videocache support..." cp /etc/squid/squid.conf-novc /etc/squid/squid.conf squid -k reconfigure sleep 2 echo "Killing any remaining Videocache processes..." killall python echo "Reconfiguring with Videocache support..." cp /etc/squid/squid.conf-vc /etc/squid/squid.conf squid -k reconfigure echo "Done."
Also made the same sort of script to do the rotate.
