If you've configured 14 GB of cache space, and your average object
size is 13 KB, then you should have 2153846 swap file numbers,
not 716800 as your cache.log output says.

How about if you tell us:

        * your squid version
        * your 'cache_dir' and 'cache_swap' configuration values
        * your 'store_avg_object_size' configuration value
