I have a FreeBSD box running a squid cache,
FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p9 i386, squid built
from latest ports. (2.5-STABLE1). I'm not absolutely
sure, but it appears that whenever I am running squid,
the mbuf clusters on the bsd box rise at a steady rate,
before reaching the limit, and the box's network failing
to work. The box is under very small load and this
is certainly not expected behaviour (I also have mbuf
clusters set at 33280). I know this is not neccessarily
a FreeBSD related question, but I am wondering how
I can find out what it is that is using up the mbuf clusters
without freeing them, as they steadily raise until they
reach the max... How can I obtain more information
about the mbuf cluster usage? (right now I'm just
using netstat -m) Is there a way to force clearing them?
Or to flush inactive usage, or anything?
Quite lost here.
