I don't have any critbit info, since we're running on 2.0.4,
ii libvarnish1 2.0.4-5~bpo50+1 shared libraries for Varnish
ii varnish 2.0.4-5~bpo50+1 a state-of-the-art, high-performance
Here's the counters from one installation, hash default settings
serving ~100 req/s of very small objects, 2 twin machines,
n_object 100585 . N struct object
n_objecthead 103700 . N struct objecthead
n_object 102270 . N struct object
n_objecthead 102294 . N struct objecthead
Maybe I should use -h with a higher number? :)
This other here is a different installation, ~500-1000 req/s
of medium/big files/pics and longer ttl (10 days default),
again 2 twin machines,
n_object 303979 . N struct object
n_objecthead 299199 . N struct objecthead
n_object 506522 . N struct object
n_objecthead 504143 . N struct objecthead
Here I'm using '-h classic,500009'
