Name

digest_swapout_chunk_size

Synopsis

This directive controls the amount of data written to disk for each call to the digest swapout function. Squid services normal cache traffic (client requests, server responses, etc.) in between digest swapout calls. If the value is too large, Squid blocks on the disk I/O and delays normal cache traffic.
