[SQU] logfiles size, logrotate and stuff

        I'm just curious: how big you guys are setting the logfile size?
        I usually try to rotate them daily or even more often, depending on traffic,
in order to not let them go over 1 MB. What do you think is the maximum
logfile size which will not degrade Squid's performance? I saw heavy system
load (and slowness) when the logfiles were too large, so i think this is an
important tuning parameter.

        "squid -k rotate" doesn't work on Linux with async-io. This is very annoying,
because i wanna let Squid rotate the logs, not use an external log mangler. It
appears that sending -USR2 is equivalent to "-k rotate", but this seems like a
quick hack, not a proper solution. Do you have any other ideas?
