normally, you would only send HUP signal to squid whenever you make
changes to the squid.conf file.

        kill -HUP `cat /var/run/` or
        killall -HUP squid

this will cause the squid to re-read the squid.conf file.

if you look at the system processes, ("ps -ax" on my system), you can see
a) squid -sY b) 5 dnsserver c) ftpget -S 1630 ... if you want to re-read
squid.conf, kill it with a HUP sig. killing "squid" with kill -9 will halt
the dnsserver and ftpget.

what do you mean modifications? the squid.conf contains a lot of
documentation, please read it.
