What limits the varnish_storage.bin size?

I've been using to different CentOS servers to run varnish and to load
balance to the same backends. I'm using the file cache, not malloc. I've
found something odd:

root at s2-ul [~]# du /var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin
2099200    /var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin

admin at s4-ul [~]# du /var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin
2099200    /var/lib/varnish/varnish_storage.bin

Both storage files in these two servers have the precise same size in bytes.
But I'm running varnish to use 100GB of storage:

/usr/sbin/varnishd -P /var/run/varnish.pid -a :80 -f
/etc/varnish/default.vcl -T -t 900 -w 1,1000,120 -u varnish
-g varnish -S /etc/varnish/secret -s

What am I missing? What else would limit varnish_storage.bin to this
specific size?
