NAME

       varnishadm - Control a running Varnish instance

SYNOPSIS

          varnishadm [-t timeout] [-S secret_file] [-T address:port] [-n name]
          [command [...]]

DESCRIPTION

       The varnishadm utility establishes a CLI connection to varnishd  either
       using -n name or using the -T and -S arguments. If -n name is given the
       location of the secret file and the address:port is looked up in shared
       memory.  If  neither  is  given  varnishadm  will  look for an instance
       without a given name.

       If a command is given, the command and arguments are sent over the  CLI
       connection and the result returned on stdout.

       If  no  command  argument  is  given  varnishadm will pass commands and
       replies between the CLI socket and stdin/stdout.

OPTIONS

       -t timeout
              Wait no longer than  this  many  seconds  for  an  operation  to
              finish.

       -S secret_file
              Specify  the authentication secret file. This should be the same
              -S argument as was given to varnishd. Only processes  which  can
              read the contents of this file, will be able to authenticate the
              CLI connection.

       -n name
              Connect to the instance of varnishd with this name.

       -T address:port
              Connect to the management interface at the specified address and
              port.

       The  syntax  and  operation of the actual CLI interface is described in
       the  varnish-cli(7)  manual  page.   Parameteres   are   described   in
       varnishd(1) manual page.

       Additionally, a summary of commands can be obtained by issuing the help
       command, and a summary of parameters can be  obtained  by  issuing  the
       param.show command.

EXIT STATUS

       If  a  command  is  given, the exit status of the varnishadm utility is
       zero if the command succeeded, and non-zero otherwise.

EXAMPLES

       Some ways you can use varnishadm:

          varnishadm -T localhost:999 -S /var/db/secret vcl.use foo
          echo vcl.use foo | varnishadm -T localhost:999 -S /var/db/secret
          echo vcl.use foo | ssh vhost varnishadm -T localhost:999 -S /var/db/secret
