Varnish can't start occasionally
Varnish can't start occasionally in our server. The /var/log/messages shows:

This problem occurs rarely.

My varnishd start command is like this:
/opt/taobao/install/varnish/sbin/varnishd -P
/home/admin/varnish/pid/varnish.pid -a :8888 -f
/home/admin/varnish/conf/varnish.vcl -n /home/admin/varnish/cache -T
0.0.0.0:2000 -t 120 -w 5,1000,120 -u admin -g admin -s
file,/home/admin/varnish/cache/varnish_storage.bin,1G

Is there anyone can give me some tips?

Thanks.

Re: Varnish can't start occasionally [ In reply to ]
I find the reason caused this problem. In our automatic start shell
script, There is such a line:
main >/dev/null 2>&1 <&- &

The shell script of "<&-" closes the STDIN. It seems the varnish CLI
interface need this. And The child process can't start at the
beginning.

You may reproduce this problem like this:
/path/to/varnish/init.d/varnish start <&-

This problem may be specific to our servers. It's not a bug. Hope this
can help someone else encounter the same problem.
