How to check Squid Cache


Hello Linux Gurus,

I recently finished installing Squid 3.1.9 and I think I've done installing correctly with its feature of minor configuration changes. It accepted requests on port 3128 and created and the created some numerical or binary (I guess) files in /usr/local/squid/var/logs, My problem is how can I fully verify if the cache is really storing Internet Files?

I've read some forums in the Internet replied to me to try the command: cat /usr/local/squid/var/logs/cache.log

So I did tried it and it gives me this output:

2010/11/11 18:04:49| store_swap_size = 0

wow so many.....



How can I verify if it really caching and how can I look the files that the cache has downloaded?

When I also try the command to check the access.log using
tail -f /usr/local/squid/var/logs/access.log
several inputs are:
TCP_IMS_MIS/200
TCP_MISS/200

Is this really caching Internet cookies?

please help me.

Hi,

Look for TCP_HIT to find cached objects:
Code:
grep TCP_HIT /usr/local/squid/var/logs/access.log
You can find more on squid logs here
