Subject Re: Implementing Proxy Chaining in Apache HTTP
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2012 19:17:28 GMT
Hi Toby,

I've implemented a statistics recorder that I'd be happy to share with you. We are planning
to opensource the statistics recorder, but haven't got around to it.

Let me know if you would want to look at the code or get a demo. (or if anyone wants to take
a look)

Regards,
Alan Ho
