What does .share_key do in the backend definition

    The share_key allows us to partition backends based on VCL. The only reason to change it is if you want to share a backend healthcheck between two different services/VCLs.

    We have an ability to have parent/child services, and the sharekey default to the serviceid. If you were to have multiple services, and wanted to share the backends between them, then you would set the share key to the same thing and make sure that the definitions are identical.
