 Reporter:  chrisrixon  |       Owner:  phk                
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new                
 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:  Varnish 1.0.4      
Component:  varnishd    |     Version:  1.0.4              
 Severity:  major       |    Keywords:  leak virtual memory
 varnish is performing well except it is leaking virtual memory (VIRT in

 I have simple settings:
 DAEMON_OPTS="-a :80 \
              -b localhost:81 \
              -s file,/var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin,64M"

 Virtual mem starts at 256M and then slowly climbs to about 2.5G at which
 point varnishd is restarted.

 I am running varnish-1.0.4-2el4.i386.rpm on CentOS 4.4

 Thanks Chris.
