1. NAME
       intelligentmirror - Squid url rewriter plugin for caching rpm/deb/tar.gz packages.

2. SYNOPSIS
       To be used to with squid as a url rewriter plugin.

3. DESCRIPTION
       IntelligentMirror  can  be  used  to  create a mirror of static HTTP content on your local network. When you download something (say a
       software package) from Internet, it is stored/cached on a local machine on your network and subsequent downloads  of  that  particular
       software  package  are supplied from the storage/cache of the local machine. This facilitate the efficient usage of bandwidth and also
       reduces the average download time.

4. DEPENDENCIES
         1. squid >= 2.6
         2. python >= 24
         3. python-urlgrabber
         4. python-iniparse
         5. httpd

5. CONFIGURATION
       To configure intelligentmirror, you need to configure Proxy Server (squid) and the global intelligentmirror configuration file.  Below
       are the steps to configure intelligentmirror.

   5.1. SQUID CONFIGURATION
       To  configure  squid  to use intelligentmirror as a url rewriter, you need to add the following lines to your sqiud configuration file
       (generally found at /etc/squid/squid.conf ).

         # --BEGIN-- intelligentmirror config for squid #
         url_rewrite_program /usr/bin/python /etc/squid/intelligentmirror/intelligentmirror.py
         url_rewrite_children 20
         acl intelligentmirror urlpath_regex -i \.rpm$
         acl intelligentmirror urlpath_regex -i \.deb$
         acl intelligentmirror urlpath_regex -i \.tar.gz$
         acl intelligentmirror urlpath_regex -i \.tgz$
         acl intelligentmirror urlpath_regex -i \.zip$
         url_rewrite_access allow intelligentmirror
         url_rewrite_access deny all
         cache deny intelligentmirror
         redirector_bypass on
         # --END-- intelligentmirror config for squid #

       Now restart or reload the squid service using the command

         [root@localhost ~]# service squid reload [ENTER]

       OR

         [root@localhost ~]# service squid restart [ENTER]

   5.2. INTELLIGENTMIRROR GLOBAL CONFIGURATION
       Config file : /etc/intelligentmirror.conf

       base_dir
              Base directory for caching the packages. All other directory paths should be relative to base_dir.
                Default : /var/spool/squid/intelligentmirror/

       temp_dir
              Directory to store partially downloaded packages. Directory name relative to base_dir. e.g. if  you  specify  temp_dir  =  tmp,
              actual path for storing partially downloaded packages would be /var/spool/squid/intelligentmirror/tmp/ .
                Default : tmp

       proxy
                Proxy for http, https, ftp content.
                Example : proxy = http://<Proxy_Server_IP_OR_Domain>:<Proxy_port>/ or
                http://proxy.example.com:3128/
                Default : http://127.0.0.1:3128/

       proxy_username
              If the above proxy requires authentication, please specify the username.
                Default : <blank>

       proxy_password
              If the above proxy requires authentication, please specify the password.
                Default : <blank>

       cache_host
              The  hostname or IP address of the system on which caching is being done. This is used for serving the packages from the cache.
              The cached packages will be available at http://cache_host/intelligentmirror/ . Please don’t use http:// or slashes (/).  Just
              specify the domain name or IP address.
                Example : localhost.localdomain or
                proxy.example.com or
                192.168.36.204 or
                <Proxy_Server_IP_OR_Domain>
                Default : 127.0.0.1

       rpc_host
              XMLRPCServer  is  used for memory sharing across different instances of intelligentmirror. Leave these settings as it is if you
              don’t have a fair idea of XMLRPCServer. This will be same as cache_host in almost all the cases.
                Default : 127.0.0.1

       rpc_port
              Please make sure this port is not currently in use. If it is in use by some other program, change this to some port above  1024
              which is not in use by any other program.
                Default : 9000

       max_parallel_downloads
              The maximum number of parallel downloads allowed. If all connections are consumed, packages will be queued for download.
                Default : 30

       logfile
              File where intelligentmirror log will be stored.
                Default : /var/log/squid/intelligentmirror.log

       max_logfile_size
              Maximum  size  of  logfile specified above. The size is in mega bytes. Note : Please don’t use max_logfile_size = 10MB. Don’t
              append MB.
                Default : 10

       max_logfile_backups
              The logfiles are automatically rotated once they have exceeded the  max_logfile_size.  max_logfile_backups  is  the  number  of
              backup  files  you  want  to keep. e.g. max_logfile_backups = 2 will keep intelligentmirror.log and intelligentmirror.log.1 and
              intelligentmirror.log.2 as logfiles.
                Default : 10
