Somewhere between 0 bytes and read_ahead_gap. Normally there are none
at all. Why do you need to know?

The active_requests cache manager report lists a line
"out.offset 16443, out.size 12705"

out.size have been delivered, out.offset is where the receive side is
up to presently.

So (out.offset - out.size) is the bytes currently buffered in transit
through Squid.
