Extending usable file size on RHEL 3
I support over 300 Redhat servers running RHEL 3. Each server is running squid for web caching and is linked to Websense for web filtering. The caches then point upstream to a central cache farm which is virus checked and then connects to the internet. I have a problem with a site that is tring to download a Fedora ISO that is greater than 2Gb in size. In the squid config file I have set a maximyum cache limit of 1Gb but I am assuming that the Fedeora site doesn't have the file size of the download in the files header. Squid then is unable to work out the size of the file and continues trying to cache until it is unable due to the file limit of the kernel. My question is 'is there any way around this in RHEL3'? We run RHEL4 on the central caches and don't het the problem.
I have done many searches on the internet and Redhat site but have drawn a blank.
