Thanks to bjorn and simon in IRC,

It is caused by version mismatch:

varnishstat -> 6.2.1
varnishd -> 6.4.0

The problem is resolved.

I am trying to use "varnishstat -1", but it returns empty with exit code 0.

However, varnishadm (as follows) is working.

# varnishadm -T -S /etc/varnish/secret "help"

Below is some information.

Please let me know if more info is required. Thanks a lot.
