[squid-users] Where did all my memory go?

I have just got one of my new squid machines up and running yet it has just
ran out of memory and began to swap within 2hrs.

I had a cache_mem of 640mb (it's 416Mb now) and 34Gb of cache_dir, which
will increase to 68Gb as soon as my terminators arrive.
The machine has 3Gb of RAM.

I'm running,
RedHat 7.2 Kernel2.4.7-10smp
Squid 2.4.Stable2.

MY configure options are --enable-snmp --enable-linux-netfilter
--enable-storeio="diskd,ufs,aufs" --with-pthreads --with-aio-threads=32

Does anyone have any idea where the memory is going? The squid process was
registering 720Mb in top.

Many thanks,

Jezz Palmer.
