Hello experts,

I'm running squid proxy on debian 3.0 for aproximate for 50 win98 clients. Squid was working for 4 months without problems but recently I got some problems with it. The squid just stoped working and I in order to make it working again I always need to uninstall it and install it again. In squid log file is mesage like:

cache.log :

/var/spool/squid/00: (2) No such file or directory
FATAL:  Failed to verify one of the swap directories, Check cache.log
        for details.  Run 'squid -z' to create swap directories
        if needed, or if running Squid for the first time.
Squid Cache (Version 2.4.STABLE6): Terminated abnormally.

I also tryied  # sqiud -z but it does not  help and squid stops working aftrer few days again.

My squid.conf looks like this:

cat /etc/squid.conf
http_port 3128
hierarchy_stoplist cgi-bin ?
acl QUERY urlpath_regex cgi-bin \?
no_cache deny QUERY
cache_mem 20 Mb
redirect_rewrites_host_header off
memory_replacement_policy heap GDSF
cache_replacement_policy heap GDSF
cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 200 16 256

# basic acl's
# loopback network
acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/255.255.255.255
# internal lan
acl localnet src 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0

# services you want to enable
acl Safe_ports port 80 443 210 70 21 1025-65535
acl CONNECT method CONNECT
# everyone
acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0

# only the specified services
http_access deny !Safe_ports

# allow localnet and loopback net
http_access allow localnet
http_access allow localhost
http_access deny CONNECT

# and no one else
http_access deny all

maximum_object_size 3000 KB
store_avg_object_size 50 KB
httpd_accel_host virtual
httpd_accel_port 80
httpd_accel_with_proxy on
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
httpd_accel_single_host off
cache_mgr root
cache_effective_user proxy
cache_effective_group proxy
logfile_rotate 0
log_icp_queries off
buffered_logs on

Can somebody tell me what schould I try to do to prevent squid failure?

Thanks for all suggestions

At the time Squid hoses up how much free space in there on the file system that holds /var/spool/squid (check with 'df -k')? Have you checked to see if /var/spool/squid/00 exists when that error occurs?

jlevie I think you are right :))

/dev/hda1             1.8G  1.7G   85M  96% /


when I will be able to switch off server I will relocate whol /var to another hardrive I hope it will help.

Next time I will check HDD memory first:)))
For now I just make more free space :

/dev/hda1              1921156    688628   1134936  38% /

If will have no problems with my proxy in few days I will accept your answer

thanks

Not wanting to put a fly in the ointment but if re-installing solves the problem it may be more than just a space issue - the /var/spool/squid/00 would have been created by the installation rpm or when you first ran squid -z. I hope Jims solution works but if it doesnt I would suspect your harddrive is on the way out.

owensleftfoot ,

Yes, mayby I should check filesystem and HDD as well just in case. But I still think that it could be space issue because, always when I uninstalled squid I also # rm -fr /var/spool/squid directory which always made me up to 50 MB free space more. And now it make sense why it works for couple days after that and then hang again. :)) But you never know !!!

thanks
