       varnishstat - Varnish Cache statistics


       varnishstat  [-1]  [-x] [-j] [-f field_list] [-l] [-n varnish_name] [-N
       filename] [-V] [-w delay]


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


       The following options are available:

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

       -f     Field inclusion glob. A field  glob  consists  of  three  parts,
              type,  ident  and  name,  where ident is optional. Each part can
              contain a '*' character at  the  end  to  match  a  prefix.  Use
              backslash  to escape characters. If the argument starts with '^'
              it is used as an exclusion glob. Multiple -f  arguments  may  be
              given, and they will be applied in order.

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

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

       -N     Specify a the filename of a stale VSM instance. When using  this
              option the abandonment checking is disabled.

       -V     Display the version number and exit.

       -w delay
              Wait  delay seconds between updates.  The default is 1. Can also
              be used with -1, -x or -j for repeated output.

       -x     Displays the result as XML.

       -j     Displays the result as JSON.


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

       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

       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.

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

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

       <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 counters.

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

       <q>    Quit.

              Sample now.


       When using the -x option, the output is:

            <name>FIELD NAME</name>
            <value>FIELD VALUE</value>
            <description>FIELD DESCRIPTION</description>


       With -j the output format is:

            "timestamp": "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:SS",
            "client_conn": {
                "value": 0, "flag": "a",
                "description": "Client connections accepted"
            "client_drop": {
                "value": 0, "flag": "a",
                "description": "Connection dropped, no sess/wrk"
            "LCK.backend.creat": {
                "type": "LCK", "ident": "backend", "value": 1,
                "flag": "a", "description": "Created locks"

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

       Repeated  output  with  -1, -x or -j will have a single empty line (
       between each block of output.
