Squid NOVM stability

Hi all,

on my proxy at home I have been running squid-1.NOVM.18 without any troubles
for quite some time. Now this is a small box (16 MB ram et al) and doesn't
get many hits.

Our main proxy (squid 1.1.18, Linux 2.0.32, 128 MB ram, 7 GB disk, on
average ~4500 hits/hour) is slowly consuming all available mem (it is set to
32 MB ram but instead is already using 125 MB, go figure).

I have been thinking about installing the NOVM version. Is this likely to
solve the problem? Which other resources does squid NOVM consume?

Would I need to patch Linux to provide more filehandles?
