If you restart varnish during one of these spikes, does it instantly 
disappear?  I've seen this happen (though only spiking to about 12), and 
this is when Varnish has munched through far more memory than we've 
allocated it.  This problem is one I've been looking into with Ken 
Brownfield, and touches on 
and http://projects.linpro.no/pipermail/varnish-misc/2009-June/002840.html

Do any of these tie up with your experience?
