* the cachemgr interface provides some overviews of the storage content.
   squidclient mgr:store_io
   squidclient mgr:utilization (the syscall.disk.* and swap.* entries)

* Or enable the cache_store_log for a while and check the SWAPOUT /
RELEASE. If all requests are doing RELEASE immediately then no new
objects are accumulating in the cache.

Worst case scenario is the easiest to fix. Erase the content of the
folder and run squid -z again to rebuild the cache structure empty.
Bandwidth will be impacted afterwards for a while with increasing
normality as the cache re-fills.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.9
