On the current setup we're running into a problem with Varnish, we're running a CentOS 5.7 x86_64 xenpv, with Cpanel WHM, hosted at VPS.net.
Sometimes we will recieve a Guru Meditation from Varnish, and when we look in the varnishlog with the following command
varnishlog -d -c -m TxStatus:503 it returns output similar to the following:

As far as I have could gather, we could try increasing the nuke_limit, but currently we have a nuke_limit of 500, and when running
varnishstat -1 -f n_lru_nuked we "only" get a total of 1031, even though we have seen the error happen on several pages.
When we then run top to see how much memory Varnish is using, it only shows that it is using 763m, although we've set it to be allowed to use 1200m.
Any ideas of what the problem can be?
