Squid Failure

I've been running squid in Degbug mode

(squid -NCd1)

And it loads up just fine, runs for about 1-2 days and then crashes. When I first installed it, it had run for atleast a month before ever crashing and now it's almost a daily occasion.

It says this right before it fails :

squid: rfc1035.c:417: rfc1035RRUnpack: Assertion `(*off) <= sz' failed.
Aborted
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
 
I dont know if that helps. I've been looking throught the /var/log/squid directory and i cant find anything relevant to the crashes. Any ideas?

(i'm running CentOS Linux server edition)

Hi,

It's a bug triggered by every numeric IP http://lists.debian.org/debian-security/2005/07/msg00191.html

I suggest updating to a newer squid version

The first thing to check is /var/log/messages. You have got an error from squid: First, check that it is not simply an out-of-swap-space or filesystem-full condition.
In the first case, make sure you have enough swap space, and use top, ps and systat to find out who is eating up all that space.
In the second case, free up some room.
If there is nothing there, then post back, and we'll come up with another suggestion.

There is no such a file rfc1035.c in the squid-2.5.STABLE13.tar.bz2 .
What version of squid do you have?

There is a squid specific log directory on FreeBSD.
root.ace#ll /usr/local/squid/logs/
total 926290

How does your squid/logs directory look like?
Can you find any information about the crash in squid.log?
Does your squid/cache have enough disk space?
Try to delete squid/cache and rebuild it with "squid -z"
