Varnish Admin Socket
A simple python library to administer Varnish over the administration socket. The library can use shared secret authentication. Almost all testing has been done against Varnish 3.0.0.
This was heavily inspired by Tim Whitlock's wonderful PHP library (http://github.com/timwhitlock/php-varnish).
from varnish_admin_socket import VarnishAdminSocket varnish = VarnishAdminSocket() # Optionally set host, port, and secret # host defaults to 127.0.0.1, port defaults to 6082, secret defaults to False varnish.host = '127.0.0.1' varnish.port = 6082 # You probably want to add a newline, this is usually read from a file. varnish.secret = "123\n" # To load the secret key from a file set secret_file varnish.secret_file = '/etc/varnish/secret.txt' # Connect to Varnish varnish.connect() # Purge Commands varnish.ban_url('^/cached') varnish.ban('req.http.host ~ example.com && req.url ~ ^/cached$') # Quit and close the connection varnish.quit()
from varnish_admin_socket import VarnishAdminSocket # You may also set server, port, host, and secret on instantiation. varnish = VarnishAdminSocket(host='varnish.domain.com',secret='123\n') # Setting auto_connect will automatically connect(), will run the first command (besides auth), # and will then .quit() VarnishAdminSocket(auto_connect=True,secret_file='/etc/varnish/secret.txt').ban_url('.')
