How to see active downloading file log in squid?

I want to impose quota (limit how many GB can one use per month). I tried to use squish, but failed. I decided to write the program by analyzing /var/log/squid/access.log , but when I tested downloading a file (not visiting a page which adds GET or POST), there was no log in squid. So, I have problem and want to see how is it? Does Squid log the downloaded files? (like a zip)..
I am using squid in a embedded variant of fedora. squid -v shows "Squid Cache: Version 2.6.STABLE22".
Please help,

What if try some log analyzer? For example Sarg. It reads squid log file and generates nice reports, including downloaded files with IP addresses of clients.


download, squid
