New with varnis

Hi, I'm willing to try varnish on our production environment. Right
now I've 5 squids running and serving static files. (1.3 million files
~40k each and counting)

I've some questions about varnish and the difference with squid.

- Is it possible to set the amount of RAM varnish should use?
- Varnish creates a directory tree like the one squid does?
- Varnish starts dumping content to disk once memory is full?
- '-s' option limits the disk size varnish will use to store files?

Nothing else to say (yet) except that varnish seems to be a very good
candidate for squid replacement.
