[squid-users] refresh_pattern and same objects

Hi All,

Maybe someone gets the info already...
A refresh_pattern with 1 week maxi, if the same object is "visited" (coming
from the squid cache) every day, will the object be deleted 1 week after the
first cache action or will the squid add +1 week each time the object is
used from the cache ?

My issue is if we cache a big object (windowsupdate, chrome, etc...) for 1
week or 6 months, do we have to download it again once the initial time is
over ?
Or can we expect the same big object will be available from the cache for a
very long time if it's visited at least 1 time before the end of the time

Windowsupdate 10 is about 2.6GB objects, if the max time is 1 month, I don't
want to re-download such size monthly, if it's used daily...

See what I mean ? 

Bye fred
