Re: Memory leak in 1.0.1 / FreeBSD 2.1R & BSDI - Results

After linking with dlmalloc my memory usage is like this:

[root@kanis etc] # top -b | grep squid
12661 root 2 0 7428K 3532K sleep 2:29 0.00% 0.00% squid

which is a *lot* better than the 20M+ that squid was using normally. The
uptime of my cache is a bit longer than a day though, so i'll post more info

It's looking good so far...
