  • That is normal.  It only uses SWAP when it needs it.



  • where the squid cache r saving?
    isn't in swap?

    i also setup dual wan like this

              ->>----->> [squid]–------>>[lan]
    wan2–/

    No it isn't.  Memory and hard disk.

    It is possible but squid can't make use of loadbalancing/polcybased routing. Only connections going through the pfSense can make use of it. A squid that is installed at the pfsense itself will always use WAN only.



  • thnx for ur help.
