Am wondering if there could be a better way to relieve memory without necessarily restarting squid considering the many disconnections I have to go through.
Please go ahead and post your cache configuration so we can see if improvements could be made to the memory usage setup. You don't need to restart Squid when you make those sort of changes - you just pass the reconfigure
option on the command line.
PS: Please also post the output of:
That way we can make sure the versions you have doesn't suffer from a memory leak or something like that. It will also tell us what options your Squid has been compiled with. Did you compile it yourself or is it a distro-provided package?
