Re: Squid grabbing all the processor

Hi Steve,

I had exactly the same phenomenon. I upgraded to 1.2.bet23, ran all the
patches, upgraded my linux to 2.0.34 (RedHat 5.1), removed the patch for
3000 file-descriptors, and everything is running fine now, faster than ever.

It seems somehow that the 3000 fd patch also has something to do with it.

With 256 file-descriptors I don't reach the limit as squid handles
file-descriptors quite efficient. Somehow, eventhough this is a transparent
proxy as well, with about 130 lines connected, I never run out of
file-descriptors. You might want to try this.

My 20 cents.
