Also if you're running the vanilla config you will have rather short
TTL times and with 1.0 expired objects are removed when touched again
or during a cleanup (with the default config that would happen when
squid is started). I had to tune the old Harvest/Squid 1.0 a lot to
at least fill 60-70% of the cache space available... ^_^
