Which means it's caching too much??
Dont we have a calculator that tells you how much you cache_dir size to

By the way the benefit of couple small disks is that you have instead of
3Gbps bandwidth to share all the I\O to the disk is that you have 3Gbps
per DISK for both I\O traffic.
which means that it can happen that squid will try to access 1000
objects at the same time from the same disk But I assume it's not
happpning every second.
