Hey Naresh,

The RAM you need would differ by the nature, hardware and couple other
things about the nature of the machine.
What you need is start from the bottom and move up.
List for yourself the machine specs and your goals.
It really helps to start from low ie the default 256MB ram cache and without
any cache_dire and then see how it all moves on from there.
For now you are getting to the 19 hours of up time and you need to overcome
this so just start with a dry run of no disk cache at all and stick to squid
defaults for the next 24-48 hours.
Also what OS are you running?

Subject: [squid-users] Crash: every 19 hours: kernel: Out of memory: Kill
process (squid)


I am new to squid. I am getting a problem every 19 hours squid takes all RAM
memory, then started taking swap in  20 minutes my swap is full. Then server
side (OOM) is activating and killing all squid child’s then finally killing
squid parent. Can someone help me how to address this problem? 

Why every 19 hours my memory is going to full?

How much Ram do I need for following squid version?
