that drive is very very busy after several minutes . the following line
shows iostat after 18 minutes

cache.log includes a lot of following lines
WARNING: cache_dir[0]: Ignoring malformed cache entry meta data at

if again i restart squid it takes same time . in that time squid performance
decreases and sometimes could not serve http . is this a normal behavior of
rock ?
