With the "Transfer limits" = (body_max_size) is it possible to define a limit for up- or downloads (for each connection). Every down- or upload which goes beyond the specified value in KB will be prevented by Squid. This function is regulated over the "Post-" and "Get-request". This can be useful to prevent the down- or upload of large files if there is only a small bandwidth available. Consequently, the bandwidth can be saved for browser traffic.
Max download size (KB): = (request_body_max_size [Value] KB) this value defines the maximum download rate per connection.
Max upload size (KB): = (reply_body_max_size [Value] KB all) this value defines the maximum upload rate per connection.
If files are larger than the defined values, Squid confirms this with the following error message.
