Synopsis

Squid keeps a number of statistics for each cache client (IP address). You can view them by visiting the cache manager client_list page. The ClientInfo data structure is about 240 bytes on 32-bit systems and 300 bytes on 64-bit systems. If you have thousands of clients, this database can consume a significant amount of memory. You can disable this directive and free up that memory for other uses.

Syntax
