Re: [squid-users] Log files on NFS Mount

The log entry is not written to disk until after the request and, even
then, it's buffered by the OS first. NFS will require more CPU time and
bandwidth then a local drive, however.

The big issue with logging over NFS is, when NFS goes down, squid goes
with it. Squid is vulnerable to a vast array of single points of failure,
each of them more likely to fail than a hard drive.
