file size limit exceeded


I am in a new problem., hope you guys will help me. Squid running in my server has
gone down.The messages it gives are:
Squid -sy >> /usr/local/squid/squid.out 2>&1
RunCache:line 35:1852 File size limit exceeded
squid -NsY $conf >> $logdir/squid.out 2>&1
(this repeats for some times....)
Tried to nmap myself and found that there is no 3128 port open after that
and ps -A didnt show squid running copy after that.
df showed that disk is only 15% used. So there is no question of
disk being full..
hope for your help.I am in a big doldrums.bye.

maybe the file is to big?

anyways, each file system has a set amount of directory, files, and maximum file size that it can support

if you are using a modern file system (reiserfs, xfs, jfs) then for most uses, you'll never get that "file to big" crap

if you are using older file systems (minix, fat/fat32, (ext2 is on the borderline, as modern computers are wanting more ***music, videos ...**** ), then you'll find the problem fat can only handle a file size of a few megabytes i think it was, minix/fat32 should be able to have around 64 mb files (or was that the max disk space?) ..

reiserfs and xfs can have huge file sizes, jfs (from stats a saw some time ago) has lower size limit, but its still high enough for most uses (certainly more then i have hard drive space)

so what fs are ya using? (and might want to switch a few years ago if you dare say fat/fat32/minix
