Squid not logging traffic, configuration issue?
Let me first start off by saying the squid IS currently running and traffic IS getting to the outside, it's just not being logged by squid.
For reference, I use a bridged firewall configuration with just 2 interfaces, LAN and WAN. You can see a little more detailed info about my setup in this thread from a few months back:
Current squid configuration
Proxy interface: WAN
Allow users on interface: checked
Transparent proxy: checked
Log store directory: /var/squid/logs
Proxy port: 3128
There are no other settings adjusted on any other tabs. When viewing services status, it shows squid service as running.
I originally installed squid, then sarg, then squidguard. I believe for a time it seemed to be working because when I went to view real-time status report in sarg I could see traffic. This essentially let me know that entries were being made to the access.log file. Well I ended inadvertantly blocking some stuff in squidguard that I didn't want so I decided to turn squidguard off until I could get it resolved. So the squidguard service has been stopped ever since, but now squid doesn't seem to be logging anything at all.
I have squid set to transparent proxy on port 3128. I have to bind squid to the WAN port since it is a static IP. The only other options are loopback and LAN. If I set it to LAN, since it is type "none", squid essentially configures this the same as it would a loopback. I tried this once and took a look at the squid configuration file it set it to 127.0.0.1 if it was set to the LAN interface. No traffic would be able to get out at all.

Lastly, plenty of disk space is available, so that's not an issue.
What version of pfSense are you using?
Sorry, I am on pfsense 2.0.1 using squid 2.7.9 pkg v.4.3.1.
I don't know about 2.0.1. I have an issue with 2.1 but after an update, it worked like it should.
