Thanks for the reply, if i set up this option in squid will it affect the performance of squid server.. Is it possible to tell squid server to use more swap instead of physical RAM??
Right now my system using almost 3.5 GB out of 4GB physical RAM because of squid.. and swap space is almost free to 100%..
How much memory_pools_limit i should set for the optimal usage of squid.
Physical RAM : 4GB
Swap Space : 8GB
