#1362: varnishstat fails when hostname changes
 Reporter:  raymondjiii  |       Type:  defect
   Status:  new          |   Priority:  normal
Milestone:               |  Component:  build
  Version:  trunk        |   Severity:  normal
 Keywords:               |
 In a cloud env a VM instance is brought up.  It has one hostname assigned
 and then Varnish starts.  At a later point during the VM being brought up
 the hostname changes (after all of the base packages are installed) when
 varnishstat runs it is now looking for /var/lib/(new hostname) instead of
 /var/lib/(original hostname)   The only fix is to manually log into the
 machine and restart Varnish.

 Can varnishstat keep track of where the stats were first written when it
 first starts?  And subsequently overwrite when Varnish is restarted rather
 then depending upon whatever 'hostname' returns at any point in time -
 which is not constant?
