Question about "File Descriptors"...

Looking at


it shows:

File descriptor usage for squid:
        Maximum number of file descriptors: 1064
        Largest file desc currently in use: 186
        Number of file desc currently in use: 143

The 'Largest file desc currently in use:' that "in use since server
started"? or does that mean something altogether different?
