Apologies for not being able to respond to my own problems ;)
I would personally like to give the latest SVN version a try.
I had encountered a situation where the /tmp was mounted noexec and
varnish failed to load.
This made me aware that Varnish uses /tmp to keep the compiled VCL.
I have removed the noexec option and its fine now.. would love to have a
configuration option to set the directory though :) .
As for the crashes, its still a mystery.
The system does not swap and everything seems to be quite fine.
Must be something else which is affecting Varnish.
There is one possibility though.
There is a lot of old unorganized php code on the servers that i have
never had time to inspect.
Its working so i did not need to tinker with it.
I assume that some one has used the /tmp to cache query responses and
might be cleaning up the entire /tmp to flush the caches.
Sounds a bit stupid, but a very possible scenario in my case.
Will need some time to find if that is really the case.
Thanks to DES for pointing this /tmp scenario (in his reply to Tron
