Re: [squid-users] What is a reasonable size for squid.conf?

My squid.conf is 3380 bytes, and 99 total lines, with around 35 lines
blank or commented out. If you had been upgrading from any 3.1 or older
squid, they had a LOT of unnecessary lines in there for TAG related
entries and excess documentation of every little line.
