Try to look at the file content with an editor or so:

if you are using the file manager in Openwindows (Sun) or similar,
maybe its lying (needs a refresh);
also check the permissions on the log files (same userid as squid is
running under)

and finally the location of log files in the squid.conf

if you can : use a packet sniffer to view the packets on
udp and ascii ports configured

Subject: How can I tell if it's working?

Hi all,

I've installed and now running squid. I confess that the impression I get
is that is really has improved my http transfer performance.

However, I'm baffled by the fact that if I look at logs/access.log,
logs/store.log, and cache/log, for example, those files are all zero in
size! :( Does that mean squid isn't actually caching/proxying anything?

How do I verify that it's actually doing what it's supposed to?
