There's an updated package for squid in the development repository at
<http://dev.centos.org/>. This fixes the problem with squid only having
1024 file descriptors available. The patch was "forwardported" from the
squid package in CentOS 3.8.

You get a new configuration variable in squid.conf with which you can
control the number of file descriptors available for squid:

# TAG: max_filedesc
# The maximum number of open file descriptors.
#
#Default:
# max_filedesc 1024

This package works here under a comparatively low load. So please test
this package if you need more than 1024 file descriptors and report any
issues or success with this package either here or at
<http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1603>.

The package is at
<http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/squid-2.5.STABLE6-3.4E.13.el4.centos.i386.rpm>
for i386 and
<http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/x86_64/RPMS/squid-2.5.STABLE6-3.4E.13.el4.centos.x86_64.rpm>
for x86_64.

Regards, 

Ralph
