From the last post i show how to install Squid Cache as intercept (transparent) proxy. So i expect your squid already running smoothly right now. Ok now i want to share how to see the squid log. Usually by default squid log is in /var/log/squid/access.log, and you can see the log by open the file.
But the next question is, how to see your squid log continuosly, if you want to monitor your squid? I believe there are tons of program to this, but i prefer see it on shell because it really simple and less resource consumptions. How to do that?
