I’ve Squid Proxy server with over 100 Windows workstation. I see following error message in my cache.log file – “WARNING! Your cache is running out of filedescriptors”. Do I need to filter proxy server requests to avoid this problem? How do I fix this problem under CentOS / Fedora / RHEL / Debian Linux?
