#550: varnish fails to start

Comment (by whocares):

 I found that on 32bit systems varnish cannot use the whole 2GB. Thus you
 might want to play with your command line a bit, like for example

   /usr/local/sbin/varnishd -d -P /var/run/varnishd.pid -a myip:80 -f
 /usr/local/etc/varnish/default.vcl -T -s
 file,/var/tmp,'''1.4G''' -u www -g www

 If that works, increase the '''1.4G''' up to the point where varnish stops
 working again.
