Comment (by whocares):

 As an afterthought, I'd say that it's not exactly wise to have Varnish
 start up with all backend systems marked as "sick". Imho, it would be
 better to initially start out with a status of "healthy" unless proven
 otherwise by the probe requests. This would eliminate the somewhat lengthy
 delay until Varnish starts serving requests after being (re-)started in a
 loadbalancing setup. Or, well, make it a startup option and let the admin
 decide ;)
