One little question:
Shouldn't varnish automatically compile my vcl when I start it up?

              -T \
              -f /etc/varnish/default.vcl \
              -u varnish -g varnish \
              -s malloc,2G"

service varnish start
Starting varnish HTTP accelerator: storage_malloc: max size 2048 MB.
Using old SHMFILE
[  OK  ]

telnet 6082
200 23
active          1 boot

and I have to manually load it:
vcl.load default.vcl /etc/varnish/default.vcl
200 13
VCL compiled.
vcl.use default.vcl
200 0
200 53
available       0 boot
active          1 default.vcl

It used to compile it automatically.
