  • “Really Simple Varnish Panel”
  • This WebApp allows you to monitor your Varnish server.
  • This app uses cool new stuff such as jQuery and TwitterBootstrap but also very ugly old ones such as CGI. Why? Because it was the easiest way!
  • Do not use on production server. Use for testing purpose only

Really Simple Varnish Panel


  • Display real-time varnishstat with HIT/(HIT+MISS) ratio
  • Display real-time varnishlog
  • Ban every URL from cache
  • Restart Varnish cache

Installing rsvp

  • Obviously, you need a Vanish cache server (version 3) up and running.
  • You need Apache running on the same server, different ip port, let's say 81, but anyone will do.
  • You need Apache to be able to connect to varnishadm, so copy /etc/varnish/secret to /etc/varnish/secret.www-data and chown it to www-data:www-data.
  • I strongly suggest that you protect your server with some authentification (.htpasswd with Basic AuthType should be enough).
  • Copy rsvp directory to /var/, www-data should have write access to /var/rsvp/www/logs/ directory.
  • You need also to know how to create an Apache VHOST. That's about it.
