scalar ( is a pretty good fit for this.

How many days does your access.log cover? How many requests per second
do you get? Given the fact that the latest stable release (2.59) does
all the calculations required to display all the reports irrespective of
which reports you have chosen to display, it might take a while. To
output HTML you need the -F html switch and you'll need to redirect it
to a readable location. Something like...

cat /var/squid/logs/access.log calamaris -P 60 -F html -b 10000 >

...will give you the 60 minute performance data as html in your ht docs
directory and print out a hash mark (#) for every 10,000 lines of the
log processed.
