 This could be a matter of hitting ulimit (e.g: number of file descriptors
 exceeded, memory usage etc). That's a reasonable explanation for getting

 It's unlikely that this is an actual Varnish bug, however, since there are
 no known scenarios where Varnish itself would generate a SIGTERM.

 If you are using the distro-specific bootup scripts, they should deal with
 ulimit correctly. If you've rolled your own, it's worth looking at what
 the distro-provided script do in that regard.

 Regardless, since we do not suspect that this is a bug, I recommend that
 you use the "varnish-misc" mail list - it has far more subscribers than
 our bug tracking system too.


 For now, I'm closing this ticket. If, after soliciting help from varnish-
 misc, you still suspect a bug, feel free to re-open or re-post this issue
 and we'll look closer at it.
