Yes, Squid should evict old certificates in order to cache the new ones while maintaining the total cache size at or below the configured 4MB level.

The above numbers do not matter to Squid. They should correlate with Squid estimate of the database size, but to know how many bytes Squid actually thinks the certificate database is using, do this instead:

  $ cat size
