Setup CVMFS Proxy

Setup CVMFS Proxy server

If you want more speed in a region one way could be to setup another Stratum 1 server or a proxy. We currently don’t run any proxy servers but it would be important for using it on a cluster.

docker run --shm-size=1gb -it --privileged --user=root --name neurodesktop `
-v C:/neurodesktop-storage:/neurodesktop-storage -p 8888:8888 `

Setup a CVMFS proxy server

sudo yum install -y squid

Open the squid.confand use the following configuration

sudo vi /etc/squid/squid.conf
# List of local IP addresses (separate IPs and/or CIDR notation) allowed to access your local proxy
#acl local_nodes src YOUR_CLIENT_IPS

# Destination domains that are allowed
#acl stratum_ones dstdomain .YOURDOMAIN.ORG
#acl stratum_ones dstdom_regex YOUR_REGEX
acl stratum_ones dst

# Squid port
http_port 3128

# Deny access to anything which is not part of our stratum_ones ACL.
http_access deny !stratum_ones

# Only allow access from our local machines
#http_access allow local_nodes
http_access allow localhost

# Finally, deny all other access to this proxy
http_access deny all
