BELOW IS VARNISH < V3

Look at an incoming client request of a specific URL:

varnishlog -c -o RxURL readysetlearn/readysetlearn.htm

Look at a a backend request of a specific URL:

varnishlog -b -o TxURL readysetlearn/readysetlearn.htm

See requests for one specific Hostname:

varnishlog -c -o RxHeader "Host: etherpad.org"

See the age of the cache objects for a specific hostname:

varnishlog -c -o RxHeader "Host: etherpad.org" | grep Age

If an item has a high age it means that varnish is hitting the cache for it.
