Description Reuben Farrelly 2005-08-15 02:00:51 EDT
As per this bug report on the squid-cache.org website:


we should not be building squid with --enable-truncate

It seems that the chance of a problem with this is slight, but we should be
guided by the developers opinions on what is a sensible configure option.
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2005-08-15 09:03:57 EDT
This issue was opened for the new, featured version (3.0), but in Fedora we have
the old one, stable version (2.5). Please reopen it if doesn't work for the
stable one.
Comment 2 Reuben Farrelly 2005-08-20 06:39:33 EDT
I asked about this - refer the bug report above again - the comment about using
truncate is relevant for squid-2.5 and squid-3.0.

(Apparently the disk I/O, even if refactored, is pratically identical between
Squid 2.5 and Squid 3.0.)
