The squid statistics report show us that some site are leaking our
bandwidth. How to tell? They have a huge number of images referral and
barely none for pages.
In December, channelsurfing.net
has been seen as a referrer for:
- 1000 pages roughly
- 1 740 000 images
is 14 000 / 581 000.
By looking at their pages, they use upload.wikimedia.org
and glue some
advertisement around there.
Given the cost in bandwidth, hard drives, CPU, architecture ... I do
think we should find a solution to block thoses sites as much as
possible. Would it be possible at the squid level?
