And how is it related to the issue exactly?
The issue is that squid is getting lots of requests and reaches it
maximum open FD.
in a system with users it happens that each connection that requires
from 5 to more open FD will eventually reach the limit either from usage
or leak..
To make sure about the issue try to see "lsof -n|wc -l" output and also
"ss -n|wc -l"
it will give you a basic view on the concurrent open sockets on the
server and will give us a direction about the issue.
By the way, what OS are you using?
