 I'm going to close this ticket with an "error 42" conclusion.

 Varnish allows you to have multiple VCLs loaded so you can switch between
 them, but having 20000 concurrent VCL's loaded does not make any kind of

 You should change your setup so you vcl.discard old VCLs, either by
 pruning the list of loaded VCLs so it's never longer than some N (20 ?)
 entries, or by having your back-office system keep track and discard old
 VCL's when the new one is activated.

 PS: I don't see any vcl.use commands ?  Are you sure the VCL's you load
 gets put into use ?
