[squid-users] Authenticators exiting

Hi all.

I am running squid on a Dual XEON SMP box running Linux 2.2.15 SMP.

I am having a problem with my authenticators exiting like this:

 WARNING: authenticator #1 (FD 25) exited.

I am using the PAM authentication module and I noticed that someone else posted to this list with a similar problem using NCSA auth.

If I don't do anything about this eventually (about 24 hours, as I have 20 authenticators) squid will shutdown with a:

FATAL: Too few authenticator processes are running

error message.

My only workaround has been to have cron KILLALL -HUP squid every hour. This restores the authenticator processes but this is a very dirty way of doing things.

Am I doing something wrong?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Al Kirkus
