CACHE_FULL YOUTUBE Cache directory

by twizzler on 2 Apr 2010

I am running 1.9.3 and now getting these errors.

2010-04-02 07:04:48,284 24981 X.X.X.X qP4Rb5B9yQA CACHE_FULL YOUTUBE Cache directory '/opt/squid5/videocache1/' has reached the disk availability threshold.


/dev/sdf1            140489876 133357600         0 100% /opt/squid5
enable_video_cache = 1
cache_host = X.X.X.X:38080
proxy = http://X.X.X.X:3128/
proxy_username =
proxy_password =
hit_threshold = 1
base_dir = /opt/videocache/:100000
disk_avail_threshold = 100
temp_dir = tmp
max_parallel_downloads = 30

video_lifetime = 30
logdir = /opt/videocache/log
max_logfile_size = 1024
max_logfile_backups = 8
rpc_host = X.X.X.X
rpc_port = 9100

I have it set to 100G of storage and I have a 140G disk drive. It seems to just fill the drive up and stops caching.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi Steve,

We don't limit cache size anymore because cache size calculation is a CPU intensive process and it can really choke your CPU if we start calculating cache size every one in a while (because in the long run there will be few hundred thousand videos in cache directories). Instead we use disk_avail_threshold which is the space in that particular partition on hard drive that should be empty all the time.

Please let me know if you more queries.

Thank You!

I wiped all three production servers and set them to this:

disk_avail_threshold = 10000

That should keep the drives from filling up completely.

You can use vccleaner for efficient cleanup. Or even set a cron job for vccleaner. That'll work better :)

Thank You!
