    Hi folks,
  i have just installed varnish and this is my first message to the list.
  I did i very simple configuration. I edited /etc/varnish/default.vcl.
  I included the following lines:
  backend default {
          .host = "";
          .port = "80";
  I stress loaded the my site, now being served by varnish, but i
  noticed no performance improvement.
  I would like to do a minimal configuration just to see how fast
  varnish could do.
  Is there something more i need to configure in order to get the taste
  of varnish ?
Yes, you need to check and fix the http headers your backend sends, by default, Varnish honors them.
