It seems you are using Transient storage. Transient is usually uncapped.
You can cap Transient but you should probably figure out why Varnish is
using Transient storage. Usually it will allocate Transient if
1) The objects TTL < 10s
2) Failed to allocate storage
As a hotfix I would cap Transient at, say, 2G. "varnishd -s
Transient=malloc,2G". You can probably up your main storage quite a bit
with this in place.
