varnish 3.0.4version may be have memory leak

Varnish uses a memory-mapped file to store its data. Therefore, it is
expected to use a lot of memory. However, when the kernel gets low on
memory, it will push memory-mapped back to disk. This is similar in
mechanism to the kernel's disk cache.

Does anything indicate that the memory pressure is actually the problem?

Perhaps try lowering the maximum number of threads. Also, perhaps try
making the varnish cache file smaller.

Hope this helps.
