We have been having some persistent issues with kojipkgs01 lately.
kojipkgs01 is our squid proxy in front of koji builds. It allows users
and builders to get fast access to packages. (When it's working).
Lately, it's been working fine at first, then in a few days or so it
starts getting really slow. Downloads go from 25M/s to 200k/sec and
sometimes things even just timeout.
Restarting squid seems to fix this... for a few more days.
There is never any errors on the box, i/o, load and everything is fine.
I looked this morning a bunch at options and adjusted the memory cache
down in case we were hitting some kind of issue with memory cache.
I'd like +1's for that change, and also to solicit ideas for what we
can do to fix this once and for all (if these changes don't do so).
