Thanks for the immediate response. My problem is i need to precached all the blocks of my application into the squid proxy. So that when the user access our application it will be served by the proxy and not by our server to reduce the traffic..
What happens when i precache the blocks the \var\cache folder size exceeds the default limit sooner. So i need to increase this size to 500Mb where i can store more applications.
cache_dir ufs /cache 500 8 64 will this solve that purpose

I am not exactly sure if you mean the size of your cache directories. If that is so, you can set it using
cache_dir ufs /cache 500 8 64
8=1st Level directories
64=2nd Level directories
As far as I know, ipcache_size is used for the storing the number of IP entries.
Your subject "Squid Cache log" also seems a little unclear to the question you are asking.

ipcache_size is in hostname->IP entries. A value of 1024 means Squid
saves up to 1024 DNS lookups in memory.
