Thanks, Garry. Get_squid_uptime works fine.

Yes i did it all exactly. Here is my get_cache_dns script:

UPTIME=` awk -F: '/Uptime:/ {print $2}' $FILE`
NAME=` awk -F: '/Name:/ {print $2}' $FILE`
DNS=` awk '/Dns:/ {print $2}' $FILE`
echo $DNS
echo 0
echo $UPTIME
echo $NAME

I also thought it might be because of get_squid_uptime missing. But with
it i have the same result - Requests and DNS pages show zero values and
empty graphs. There is some data on Bytes page, but it seem to be too
small and not true.
