Yes, the information about this has been posted to this list many times
since the release of 1.1.19.

In one of the source files, but you don't actually need to change it.

Read the documentation, release notes, and the FAQ. The answers are there.

Yes, you can do something about it. Look in your squid.conf. Find the
parameter that says 'store_avg_object_size 20' and change it so that it
reads 'store_avg_object_size 13'.

Restart squid. Problem goes away.

You're welcome.


Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
