You'd tell squid that the (total) size of cache is say 12gig and let squid
itself work out how big each drive is. Have to admit never looked closely
at this aspect (normally using identical drives or to within a few hundred
meg), and suspect squid will go 'oh, I'm out of disk space, lets dump a
lot of stuff' rather than 'oh, that drive is full, I'll concentrate on the
other unfull drive'. Anyone got documented behaviour on this?

Why not instead partition the 8gig and have a total of 3 4gig partitions
and avoid the whole issue? ;)
