I've read all the documentation I can get my hands on and still don't understand how the file Storage Type works. What does "Storage for each object is allocated from an arena backed by a file." really mean? For example, if I specify a size of 40GB how much physical RAM will varnish attempt to use? Will it try to use all available RAM and, if there's no more available, then use the file?
