Hello Thierry,

It is very clear, and indeed, that is how Varnish works. On the very
first request, an object will be created in the cache, and will be
marked as 'busy' until it is fully retrieved from the backend.
All the incoming requests for the same object will be queued, and as
soon as it will be fetched for the first request, it will be served to
all the waiting clients, which means the backend will see the request
only one time.
