Hi Amos,
Is that possible to have a dedicated option with the Squid to keep objects
in the cache if they're regulary used even if the time is expired ?
Cleaning small expired files (<16kb) is not a problem but we must keep big
files into the cache if often used.
There are many "small" ISPs with 2, 4 or 8Mbps bandwidth and big files are a
problem if they've to download a fresh copy every month (if max-day 1
Doing a local copy is not a right way here because too many possible big
objects and issues to manage them, we should have Squid able to do that.

I'm thinking something like that:
save_big_file on/off
save_big_file_min_size 128 MB
save_big_file_max_time 1 years

Would it be something you could implement with Squid ?
I'm sure it would work so fine 

bye Fred
