[squid-users] SSL Peek-n-Splice and exclusions by SNI

Hi Amos,

After digging through debug logs, I noticed this:

2015/03/09 14:40:12.467 | client_side.cc(2902)
concurrentRequestQueueFilled: local=
remote= FD 11 flags=33 max concurrent requests
reached (1)
2015/03/09 14:40:12.467 | client_side.cc(2903)
concurrentRequestQueueFilled: local=
remote= FD 11 flags=33 deferring new request until
one is done
2015/03/09 14:40:12.467 | client_side.cc(4365)
httpsSslBumpStep2AccessCheckDone: Failed to start fake CONNECT request
for ssl spliced connection: local=
remote= FD 11 flags=33

Which sparked my memory about a patch that Christos has for 3.5.3:

After applying this patch and rebuilding, everything works now, so
that's good. I tried using dstdomain as opposed to an external ACL and
it did not work - I suspect this is because dstdomain doesn't cover
the SNI server name, but it should be fine with Christos' server_name
ACL patch I would expect. If I get time I might try applying that to
3.5.x to see if it covers my use case, but for the time being I'll
stick with the external ACL helper.
