Hi,

I installed proxy squid on a NAS and it is performing really slow. Configuration is default, didn't changed a thing.

DNS is responding quickly, NAS also, checked that.
Note: I have a different proxy on my network (privoxy) this one is performing really well, so it is defintely Squid config but don't know what, cpu & mem is ok, network also.

Please advise.
J.

Does it matter? Synology. Worked like a charm before, not since I upgraded to version 4 of DSM.

Well, typically vendors do not allow you to install 3rd party software like that.  But if they do, knowing which NAS it is may allow us to look for known issues.
