It enforces Squid not being able to answer client requests during that
step #4 operation. Its a possibility to avoid manually directing traffic
at the proxy when step #4 is completed. Especially if you have some
external heartbeat or similar monitor making the decision whether Squid
gets traffic.

In your case with TB of cache past experience indicate that a full
rebuild may take some hours. Its sort of equivalent in operations to a
disk defrag. Squid with -F will still be accepting client connections,
just not answering them for that time. Which is unlikely to be desirable
if the full rebuild takes a long time and holding up real clients so I
didnt suggest it.
