# TAG: cache_access_log
# Logs the client request activity. Contains an entry for
# every HTTP and ICP request received.
#cache_access_log /usr/local/squid/logs/access.log
-> just enter /dev/null as the file name:
cache_access_log /dev/null

# TAG: cache_log
# Cache logging file. Set logging levels with "debug_options"
#cache_log /usr/local/squid/logs/cache.log
-> just enter /dev/null as the file name:
cache_log /dev/null
But it's not recommended to not have the cache_log file, 'cause it's
hard to find errors and stuff this way :) (/dev/null isnt easy to read
using tail and related)

# TAG: cache_store_log
# Logs the activities of the storage manager. Shows which
# objects are ejected from the cache, and which objects are
# saved and for how long. To disable, enter "none".
#cache_store_log /usr/local/squid/logs/store.log
-> as the doku says:
cache_store_log none

# TAG: cache_swap_log
# Location for the cache "swap log." This log file holds the
# metadata of objects saved on disk. It is used to rebuild the
# cache during startup. Normally this file resides in the first
# 'cache_dir' directory, but you may specify an alternate
# pathname here. Note you must give a full filename, not just
# a directory.
You should not delete it 'cause the cache depends on the data written to
this file. size is related to cache contents.
