The logfiles are rotated when squid receives the USR1 signal. I have an
entry in my crontab like this:

/bin/kill -USR1 `cat /usr/local/squid/logs/`

This rotates the logfile. In addition I have configured squid only to keep
the latest logfiles by setting the configuration-parameter logfile_rotate
to 1.
