The image is showing the machine is nearing 64GB of RAM being used. With
~49% allocated to Squid and 50% allocated to other things.
Whatever that external memory user is you are lucky that Squid is not
using more. If it did the system would start swapping memory to disk,
and for Squid that is a very nasty situation leading directly to
terrible service times.
