Squid keeps several logs detailing access, cache performance, and error messages.
• access.log holds requests sent to your proxy.
• cache.log holds Squid server messages such as errors and startup messages.
• store.log holds information about the Squid cache, such as objects added or removed.
You can use the cache manager (cachemgr.cgi) to manage the cache and view statistics on the cache manager as it runs. To run the cache manager, use your browser to execute the cachemgr.cgi script (this script should be placed in your Web server's cgi-bin directory).
