You're just assuming that Squid is telling you about the same time
period for each stat. It isn't...Squid cachemgr stats are sometimes 5
minute averages, 15 minute averages, 60 minutes averages, and sometimes
since Squid started running. Usually they'll tell you to what it
refers, but HTTP req/sec from mgr:info does not--I believe it is a
process lifetime stat so is skewed towards a lower rate for a while
after starting up.
