Re: what configuration for this specially in cache_dir?

Actually, the Squid cache is enabled by default, which helps accelerate the loading of some pages. The default allocated size is 100 MB(found in /var/spool/squid). To change its size,edit the /etc/squid/squid.conf file. Find the line:
# cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 100 16 256

Edit it. You can change the value 100 by what you want (eg 200 for 200 MB):
cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 200 16 256
