|-n ident||Connect to the instance of varnishd with this name.|
|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.|
|Wait no longer than this many seconds for an operation to finish.|
|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. Parameters 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.
If a command is given, the exit status of the varnishadm utility is zero if the command succeeded, and non-zero otherwise.
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
o varnishd(1) o varnish-cli(7)
The varnishadm utility and this manual page were written by Cecilie Fritzvold. This man page has later been modified by Per Buer, Federico G. Schwindt and Lasse Karstensen.
