       varnishstat - Varnish Cache statistics


       varnishstat [-1] [-f <glob>] [-h] [-j] [-l] [-n <dir>] [-t <seconds|off>] [-V] [-x]


       The varnishstat utility displays statistics from a running varnishd(1) instance.

       The following options are available:

       -1     Instead  of  presenting  a  continuously  updated  display, print the statistics to

       -f <glob>
              Field inclusion glob. Use backslash to escape characters. If  the  argument  starts
              with  '^'  it  is  used  as  an exclusive glob. Multiple -f arguments may be given.
              Inclusive globs are accumulative and are run before exclusive ones.

       -h     Print program usage and exit

       -j     Print statistics to stdout as JSON.

       -l     Lists the available fields to use with the -f option.

       -n <dir>
              Specify the varnishd working directory (also known as instance name)  to  get  logs
              from. If -n is not specified, the host name is used.

       -t <seconds|off>
              Timeout before returning error on initial VSM connection. If set the VSM connection
              is retried every 0.5 seconds for this many  seconds.  If  zero  the  connection  is
              attempted only once and will fail immediately if unsuccessful. If set to "off", the
              connection will not fail, allowing the utility to start and wait  indefinetely  for
              the Varnish instance to appear.  Defaults to 5 seconds.

       -V     Print version information and exit.

       -x     Print statistics to stdout as XML.

              Print the optstring parameter to getopt(3) to help writing wrapper scripts.


       When  neither  -1,  -j  or -x options are given, the application starts up in curses mode.
       This  shows  a  continuously  updated  view  of  the  counter  values,  along  with  their

       The top area shows process uptime information.

       The center area shows a list of counter values.

       The bottom area shows the description of the currently selected counter.

       The following columns are displayed, from left to right:

       Name   The name of the counter

              The current value of the counter.

       Change The average per second change over the last update interval.

              The  average  value  of  this  counter over the runtime of the Varnish daemon, or a
              period if the counter can't be averaged.

       Avg_10 The moving average over the last 10 update intervals.

              The moving average over the last 100 update intervals.

              The moving average over the last 1000 update intervals.

   Key bindings
       The following keys control the interactive display:

       <UP>   Navigate the counter list one line up.

       <DOWN> Navigate the counter list one line down.

       <PAGEUP> or <b>
              Navigate the counter list one page up.

       <PAGEDOWN> or <SPACE>
              Navigate the counter list one page down.

       <d>    Toggle between showing and hiding unseen counters. Unseen counters are  those  that
              has  been  zero  for  the  entire  runtime  of varnishstat. Defaults to hide unseen

       <e>    Toggle scaling of values.

       <g>    Go to the top of the counter list.

       <G>    Go to the bottom of the counter list.

       <v>    Cycle  through  the  verbosity  levels.  Defaults  to  only  showing  informational

       <q>    Quit.

       The XML output format is:

          <varnishstat timestamp="YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:SS">
              <name>FIELD NAME</name>
              <value>FIELD VALUE</value>
              <flag>FIELD SEMANTICS</flag>
              <format>FIELD DISPLAY FORMAT</format>
              <description>FIELD DESCRIPTION</description>

       The JSON output format is:

            "timestamp": "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:SS",
            "FIELD NAME": {
              "description": "FIELD DESCRIPTION",
              "flag": "FIELD SEMANTICS", "format": "FIELD DISPLAY FORMAT",
              "value": FIELD VALUE
            "FIELD NAME": {
              "description": "FIELD DESCRIPTION",
              "flag": "FIELD SEMANTICS", "format": "FIELD DISPLAY FORMAT",
              "value": FIELD VALUE

       Timestamp is the time when the report was generated by varnishstat.
