Will do, thanks. I have a script that tries to "predict" when these problems are about to happen. It runs something like
timeout 30 squidclient mgr:info
and if it actually times out then it restarts both squid and c-icap.
So I'm afraid I might not get anything out of "squidclient mgr:mem", but I will run top -b -n 1 and ps waux.
