Squid-Based Traffic Control and Management System
In this article, we considered the state of the art in the Internet access control problem. We proposed several methods for its solution and considered the variant based on the Squid proxy server, which has been implemented in the LAN of BSPU. Our solution is not the panacea and possibly has several drawbacks, but it is rather simple, flexible and absolutely free.
We also should say that our Web-programmer, Elmir Mirdiev, is now finishing the implementation of a small PHP-based Web site designed for system management and user statistics reporting. The user-detailed statistics are generated from the Squid logs using the Sarg system.
Other information can be obtained from the source code of the system. You can get the whole modified source code of Squid version 2.5STABLE7 tarball on our site or only the patch file. We will be glad to answer your questions by e-mail.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
