Squid…Log Filled with nothing but TCP_200MISS
I am at a loss to know where to go.
My logs are full of nothing but TCP_200MISS:

Looking at lightsquid: we have gotten 20gb of data, but 0% hits..again we visit some graphic heavy sites.
does squid created the cache directories?
cat /var/squid/logs/access.log | grep HIT
[2.1-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root(1): cat /var/log/squid/access.log | grep hit
2.1-RELEASE][email@example.com]/root(1):cat /var/squid/logs/access.log | grep HIT
Did you enabled cache?
As near as I can tell. Yes.
I have transparent proxy enabled.
I have my interface selected
I have /var/squid/logs
log rotated every 5 days.
Heap LRU is selcted for policy
/var/squid/cache is cache area
What you have on Hard disk cache size and Hard disk cache system?
2048 and ufs
No problem, u can force the creation of the cache dir structure, if doesn't exist.
U must have access to your shell.
1; Stop the service from the GUI.
2; run this command:
u will see a lot of info, once it finish, check the dir for the whole directories:
U must seen if u setup squid with default settings, u must have 16 directories and each one with more directories.
Once u check this start the service from the GUI, I will suggest to restart your machine, this way squid will check the cache directory.
If everything is goes well, test with your browser and hope this fix the issue.
Other thing, change UFS to AUFS.
Good luck !!!
U are right men, I have a full installation on a P4 machine, squid is not caching nothing, I got just 1 HIT, I'm working to see this issue and see if we could fix this :o
Looks like is working.
My installation created the cache dir, no issue, but I check the
and I didn't founf any HIT, not even MEM_HIT.
Before increase debug settings, I did what I told u:
stop squid from GUI
delete cache dir
create cache structure again
restart squid from GUI
restart the machine
I start seen MEM_HIT/TCP_HIT again, hope this help u, see u latter.
Do you think it's a cache create issue?
I will reinstall pfsense+squid and let u know, can be, because my cache dir was created but it was not caching nothing until I recreate them, but need to make more test and see if is a install issue.
marcelloc, this is not a cache issue, well in my case I setup on other machine and no problem, it create the cache dir once u setup size and everything in the tab "local cache".
For me is more related to the specific machine.
But will be good to have a info list about this little issues that could happen to the new users and let them know how to check them and fix them.
See u latter!!!
I completely removed all of squid (I was on squid 3 sorry, should have put that at the top), from the package manager.
Then I searched the drive for squid references…removed all of them no backups, no xml's etc...
Removed all 'cache' verified there was a dive in disk usage after the removal..all cache seemed to be gone.
re-installed, and waited 3 hours, went to reddit a few times...tumblr/facebook/news text sights that I can cache (not video etc). still no "HIT" in access.log.
Removed squid 3 via package manager.
"downgraded" to squid.
10% hit in 3 hours.
I'm willing to test out ideas..this is now on my home box duplicating results...
Just to add, once u remove and reinstall.
clean your browsers cache, they have a internal cache to, this force them to request the web page.
How u are getting those numbers?
I clean all the browser cache (chrome/firefox)..
average Hit %
3.0 G 9.66%
Remember that dynamic pages(fb, twitter, yt) won't punch the cache, if u can setup calamaris, squid-cache manager and compare with lightsquid reports.
3GB won't say nothing, squid won't warranty that will use those 3GB at the moment.
If u want to see the cache at full speed, give little memory to squid 128MB, restart, full day running and watch your reports, I cannot nothing about how lightsquid works, I don't used.
