Comment(by ahongens):

 I had this problem for a while with a quite overloaded Varnish. My 4 nodes
 had 8GB RAM each, and I set varnish to use ~16GB, so it would swap to
 disk. My dataset is >1TB, since there are a lot of sites behind this
 cluster. Varnish stopped ocassionally.

 After I experienced this for a while I set varnish to use 6GB (so less
 than the physical ram), and since then I haven't seen a single problem
 with varnish.
