squid cache_dir hard disk space reaching the maximum size


Dear All,

I have set up squid server. My cache directory has been set up as per following statements.

cache_dir ufs /Cache1/squid 10000 16 256
cache_dir ufs /Cache2/squid 10000 16 256

Now the problem is that size of /Cache1 and /Cache2 has reached to about 8GB and in near future it will reach the maximum limit of 10GB. I just want to know that whether I need to delete the contents of these directories or otherwise.

You can do it manually, let Squid do it, or work through Squid to purge certain objects. The Squid documentation/wiki has lots of information, if you had looked:
http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq..._Cache_Storage

If you want to increase the size of the cache, that's another option too.
