This is more of a statement, less of a question.
The machine I put clearos on was an older machine and it only had a 40Gb disk, but disk space was running low and so I investigated.
My squid cache directory was taking about 28GB of disk space alone. I looked at the squid.conf file, and squid was set to cache up to 51.6GB
That seems dangerous to a admin who may be unaware. Squid has no qualms about using up to its allowed space, even if that fills the disk. I set it to something more sane, ie 5.6Gb and am unlinking as I write.
