Varnish Shared memory Log can put a major strain on the disk (I/O write operations). The solution is to store it on the virtual memory filesystem.
tmpfs virtual memory filesystem on
$ echo "tmpfs /var/lib/varnish tmpfs rw,size=1G 0 0" | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab
$ sudo systemctl stop varnish
tmpfs virtual memory filesystem.
$ sudo mount /var/lib/varnish
$ sudo systemctl start varnish
tmpfs virtual memory filesystem will get populated as expected.
$ df -h /var/lib/varnish/
