Upgrading to Varnish 7.3¶
New VSL format¶
The binary format of Varnish logs changed to increase the space for VXIDs from 32 bits to 64. This is not a change that older versions of the Varnish logging utilities can understand, and the new utilities can also not process old logs.
There is no conversion tool from the old format to the new one, so this should become a problem only when raw logs are stored for future processing. If old binary logs need to remain usable, the only solution is to use a compatible Varnish version and at the time of this release, the 6.0 branch is the only one without an EOL date.
