 Priority:  high      |   Milestone:  Varnish 2.0 code complete
Component:  varnishd  |     Version:  trunk                    
 Severity:  critical  |    Keywords:                           
 I'm using varnish-2.0.beta2. Everything is ok but I found after I restart
 varnish, all requests will be sent to the backends as if all cached items
 are purged.

 I started varnish as:

 DAEMON_OPTS="   -a :80 \
                 -T localhost:6000 \
                 -f /etc/varnish/vcl.conf \
                 -u nobody -g nobody \
                 -n /data/varnish \
                 -s file,/data/vcache1/varnish_storage.bin,100G \
                 -s file,/data/vcache2/varnish_storage.bin,100G \
                 -p client_http11=on \
                 -p backend_http11=on \
                 -p thread_pool_max=4000 \
                 -p thread_pools=4 \
                 -p listen_depth=4096 \
                 -p lru_interval=3600 \
                 -p obj_workspace=4096 \
                 -h classic,500009"

 Is it by design?
