I know it is possible to run multiple Varnish daemons on one server with the
­n option but why is it that I only see one daemon In my process list?

When I start a second daemon with the command described below I am getting
no real error.

jvanarragon at VARNISH:/var/log/varnish$ sudo /usr/sbin/varnishd -P
/var/run/ -a <external IP>:80 -T localhost:6082 -f
/etc/varnish/testjaap.vcl -s
file,/export/varnish/cache/varnish_storage_testlukkien.bin,1G -w 75,2500,120

Using old SHMFILE

I already have a daemon started but it seems that I can¹t start a second


/usr/sbin/varnishd -P /var/run/ -a <external IP>:80 -T
localhost:6082 -f /etc/varnish/jaap.vcl -s
file,/export/varnish/cache/varnish_storage.bin,2G -w 75,2500,120 -n JAAP

Thank you in advance.
