"Resource temporarily unavailable" is EAGAIN, and it might be caused by between_bytes_timeout or similar.

"HTC status 3" is probably due to https://github.com/varnishcache/varnish-cache/issues/1772. Once we patch Varnish and upgrade all hosts to the new version, this error should become "Timed out reusing backend connection".
"http format error" is interesting, it looks like some garbage (sic, that's what varnish calls it) is occasionally returned by the appservers. See https://logstash.wikimedia.org/goto/7338143bb141cf85845385c77b52a944 and https://logstash.wikimedia.org/goto/4bfb870a2c82886a21ababfb898459b5
