Try:
Code:
rm /var/log/squid/access.log
If access.log is located somewhere else check squid.conf to find its actual location.
After deleting the logfile don't forget to reload squid

Regards

You can use "sbin/squid -k rotate" ... it will rotate access.log to access.log.0 and access.log will be fresh.

You can use this script
#1- pass the argument like "Jan 1 172.16.1.45"
#2- it will create temp.log -- u just delete access.log and rename temp.log to access.log


#! /usr/bin/perl
open INPUTFILE, "<", "access.log" or die $!;
open OUTPUTFILE, ">", "temp.log" or die $!;
$m_=$ARGV[0];
$d_=$ARGV[1];
$ip_=$ARGV[2];
while (<INPUTFILE>) {

@textline=split(" ",$_);


#print "@textline[0] @textline[2] \n";
@time=split(" ",localtime(@testline[0]));
if((@time[1] eq $m_ ) && (@time[2] eq $d_) && (@textline[2] eq $ARGV[2]))
{
$flag=1;
}
if($flag==0)
{
print OUTPUTFILE $_;
}
$flag=0;

}



Thank
