The size of the cache stored on disk? I suppose "du -sh" could do it but that would be a bit expensive. If the cache is on a separate mount point a simple df command will do the trick.

2) how can we update/modify cache size(basic logic behind the cache size of squid while considering PC hardware)
The maximum size of the disk cache is set in squid.conf by the cache_dir directive. You can change it with an editor and issue "squid -k reconfigure" while squid is running.
