Re: [squid-users] Running out of hard disk space

Have you tuned your filesystems to optimize for space, not speed?

If optimized for speed, then Squid will fragment the filesystem to
such extent that no files can be stored there even if DF reports you
have 50% free..

See the Squid FAQ section on Solaris.

I don't think you are running out of inodes.
