Make sure it is not running into a 2GB file size limit on any of the log
files..

That was one of my fears at first, but it hasn't happend.

*ouch* okay, that was our problem. I saw that the dd was also able only to
write a file with 300MB or so, then it was out of disk space.

I simply recreated the filesystem.

Unfortunately, I can not just switch over to Linux for the squid (I'd love
to but our company wants only
Solaris-Boxes), therefore I can not do much to change the behaviour. Since
even Solaris ufs is quite
slow with small files, my question is: has anyone experience with Veritas
Filesystem used for Caching
purposes? Is it faster than Solaris ufs or has anyone on the list better
ideas (other storage types maybe)
and has already tested it on Solaris?

Ciao, Hanno
