Will Varnish dynamically use RAM optimally given how much you have

A problem with Squid today is that it's not possible to set an upper
limit for how much RAM it will use, and with time it can easily grow
beyond the limits of the VM causing it to get killed (that is it
restarts itself, losing all cache in RAM).

I take it this will not be a problem with Varnish? :-)

Do you use kernel/userspace memory as needed?
