Comment (by hp197):

 For the record....

 It looks like i've solved my problem.
 I defined a grace period (in sub vcl_fetch: set beresp.grace = 30m;).

 After deleting that line i got memory usage as expected.

   3.9 GiB +   1.2 MiB =   3.9 GiB       /usr/local/varnish/sbin/varnishd
 -P /var/run/varnish_xxx.pid -a :xxx -f
 /usr/local/varnish/etc/varnish/xxx.xxx.xxx.vcl -T :xxx -s malloc,3G -i xxx
 -n /usr/local/varnish/var/varnish/xxx -p thread_pools 4 -p lru_interval
 1800 (2)

 Could there be an issue in the cleanup of the grace storage?
