You want to check on ICAP health status.


To view Health-Check information for ICAP services, go to proxy's advance URL:


Example ouput

 icap.icap_dlp    Enabled      OK      UP
    Last status: Success.
    Successes (total): 16      (last): Mon, 05 Jun 2023 13:25:05 GMT     (consecutive): 16
    Failures  (total): 0      (last): Never      (consecutive): 0      (external): 0
    Last response time: 140 ms      Average response time: 336 ms
    Minimum response time: 127 ms      Maximum response time: 3136 ms

A high queued-actions (current) indicates that the ICAP servers being overloaded.  High values in queued-actions is one of the cause of slow browsing.   

max-queued-actions is the highest watermark recorded by proxy.  max-queued-actions values are often historical values but could also be current  if you are seeing queued-actions = max-queued-actions.
