Hi all,

I recently noticed one of my squid servers reverse its "normal" usage stats for:

        Request Memory Hit Ratios: 5min: 0.6%, 60min: 0.5%
        Request Disk Hit Ratios: 5min: 41.7%, 60min: 48.3%

"Normal" usage looks more like:

        Request Memory Hit Ratios: 5min: 48.9%, 60min: 48.9%
        Request Disk Hit Ratios: 5min: 2.9%, 60min: 6.2%

Is squid is now satisfying requests mainly from disk? Am I interpreting this correctly?

There is adequate free memory on this machine. None of the other (near identical) servers in the pool are exhibiting this behaviour. All servers are configured as an "accelerator" for the same application so the usage should be similar.
