Varnish provides a simple telnet management interface for doing things like:
purging URLs from cache
start and stop the server
This Python API takes full advantage of the available commands and can run across multiple Varnish instances. Here are the features of this python module (compared to python-varnishadm)
Uses telnetlib instead of raw sockets
Implements threading module
Can run commands across multiple Varnish instances
More comprehensive methods, closely matching the management API (purge_*, vcl_*, etc.)
manager = VarnishManager( ('server1:6082', 'server2:6082') ) manager.run('ping') manager.run('ban.url ^/secret/$') manager.run('ban.list') manager.run('purge.url', 'http://mydomain.com/articles/.*') manager.close()
