The number of file descriptors used is approximately equal to the number
of established connection plus the number of close_wait if your server
is not really busy and your server is not NOVM. Would you please tell
me the approximate number of both of them?

netstat -n | grep CLOSE_WAIT | wc -l
netstat -n | grep ESTABLISHED | wc -l

We have CLOSE_WAIT more than ESTABLISHED especially for the proxy server
with slower link. Thanks a lot for your help.

By the way, anoyone know what will happen exactly if squid cannot get
enough file descriptors before hitting the system limit?
