Yes. Squid has it's own built-in ramdisk equivalent for memory caching
the most popular or recent objects.

It's size is defined by the cache_mem setting which may be used with or
without the disk caching.

To run diskless:

  * 3.0 and numerically lower there is a "null" disk type to set on
cache_dir line and override the default 100MB on-disk cache.

  * 3.1+ have no such default on-disk so removing all cache_dir lines is
the same end result.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.3
