Subject Re: Restricting access to stats_over_http?
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 07:36:28 GMT
I was able to use {stat} this way...

	CONFIG proxy.config.http_ui_enabled INT 2
	CONFIG proxy.config.http.enable_http_info INT 1

	map /_stat/ http://{stat} @action=allow @src_ip=

$ curl localhost:<port>/_stat/ -s

I'm only using the output to parse and report metrics into monitoring, so I didn't require
access outside of localhost.

with this to our TSAPI's, that would be the way to go (since then you get all the optimized
range support etc.).
