NAME

       varnishhist - Varnish request histogram

SYNOPSIS

       varnishhist  [-b] [-C] [-c] [-d] [-I regex] [-i tag] [-m tag:regex ...]  [-n varnish_name]
       [-r file] [-V] [-w delay] [-X regex] [-x tag]

DESCRIPTION

       The varnishhist utility reads varnishd(1) shared memory logs and presents  a  continuously
       updated  histogram  show‐ ing the distribution of the last N requests by their processing.
       The value of N and the vertical scale are  dis‐  played  in  the  top  left  corner.   The
       horizontal  scale is logarithmic.  Hits are marked with a pipe character ("|"), and misses
       are marked with a hash character ("#").

       The following options are available:

       -b     Include log entries which result from communication  with  a  backend  server.   If
              neither -b nor -c is specified, varnishhist acts as if they both were.

       -C     Ignore case when matching regular expressions.

       -c     Include  log  entries which result from communication with a client.  If neither -b
              nor -c is specified, varnishhist acts as if they both were.

       -d     Process old log entries  on  startup.   Normally,  varnishhist  will  only  process
              entries which are written to the log after it starts.

       -I regex
              Include  log  entries  which match the specified regular expression.  If neither -I
              nor -i is specified, all log entries are included.

       -i tag Include log entries with the specified tag.  If neither -I nor -i is specified, all
              log entries are included.

       -m tag:regex only count transactions where tag matches regex. Multiple

              -m options are AND-ed together.

       -n     Specifies  the  name  of  the  varnishd  instance  to  get logs from.  If -n is not
              specified, the host name is used.

       -r file
              Read log entries from file instead of shared memory.

       -V     Display the version number and exit.

       -w delay
              Wait at least delay seconds between each update.  The default is 1.   file  instead
              of  displaying  them.   The  file  will  be  overwritten  unless  the -a option was
              specified.

       -X regex
              Exclude log entries which match the specified regular expression.

       -x tag Exclude log entries with the specified tag.
