Squid Cache (Version 2.2.STABLE5): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 672.562 seconds
Maximum Resident Size: 268240 KB
Page faults with physical i/o: 0

FATAL: xcalloc: Unable to allocate 4 blocks of 4 bytes!

This looks like I hit some kind of system limit on allocating more
than 256M RAM to Squid.

I have 1G RAM. I set the memory to 256M in squid.conf, I read that it
can take 3 times that.

How do I increase this limit. Its running on FreeBSD3.3 BTW.
