Unfortunately, the cache_dir max-size parameter does not understand size
units (a missing feature). Squid also does not tell you that you have
misconfigured it (a bug). I have not tested whether that problem is the
reason behind "no swapdirs for e..." decision, but there is a very good
chance that it is -- 500MB gets misinterpreted as 500 bytes.

The correct way to express a 500MB size limit is

    cache_dir rock /data 3000 max-size=524288000
