File Descriptors

I am using linux 2.1.74 for a squid proxy, and I just used the echo
statements in my rc.local file at startup. Looks like this:

echo 32768 > /proc/sys/kernel/inode-max
echo 8192 > /proc/sys/kernel/file-max

As I understood it, that is all I need to do for the FD problem.

Is there a way to monitor FD usage in real time on the box?

Also, is my kernel ok for use with a fairly heavily loaded Squid proxy?
