When using varnish 2.0.3, which makes use of pthreads, WCPU und CPU usage is 
extremely high. I guess this is a bug in lib/libpthread on NetBSD, as this 
doesn?t happen on Linux or FreeBSD.
Start varnish using the following command (warning: www/varnish in pkgsrc is 
extremely old, download/compile 2.0.3 for yourself):
./varnishd -a :8033 -b localhost -s file,/usr/pkg/var/varnish.cache,10M -d -d

Enter "start".

Use top(1) to see something like this:
 9920 nobody    25    0  2400K 4296K RUN/1      3:28 97.85% 97.85% varnishd

Enter "param.set diag_bitmap 0x8" and start varnishtop to see this:
4862930.38 Debug          
4862930.71 Debug
