Where can squid log processor be seen after installing it?

I managed to somehow install squid on my system but I was wondering if it is already running or not. How would I be able to know if it is running on the back of the system already? And one more thing, is there a squid log processor? Where would I be able to see it if there is? Thank you very much for your response.

Hi Lilliesheaa,

Through the squidclient program quickly confirm if the squid program is running by running this command: “% squidclient http://www.netscape.com/ > test”. If it is running the response “Ready to serve requests” will be displayed.

Squid only runs in the background if all the options are off, that is, follow the path “% /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid” to remove options and activate squid to run in the background. There is nothing really like a squid log processor but there are numerous squid log processing software. Here is a useful list of squid log processing software:

Calamaris handles different types of logs.

When you install this software it shows clearly in the control panel its location in your machine.

Hi,

There are many ways to check if squid is up and running. 
You can check from squid itself by trying: % squid -k check
Depending on your request, you might decide which log files to check, but it is highly recommended to focus on the data you may find to cache.log and access.log.
 
To analyze squad log files, you may try one of the following analyzers:
 
SARG – SARG stands for "Squid Analysis Report Generator"
This tool is used to control your Internet user's.
You can use SARG to check the activity of Squid users, including browsing time, browsing size and site.
Main files you should use here are "readme" "sample reports" "changelog" etc.
Choose the SARG packet version you want to download.
 
Free-SA; – Also Free-SA is a very useful analyzer, it is very comparable to SARG, but it has higher speed in log processing and from what i have used until now, it has never crashed while analyzing big size files.
