Varnish Newbie Logging Question

Hi, folks! I'm new to Varnish, but already loving it. :) Having
decided to deploy it for real, I need to get logging set up properly.
My aim is to get the data from my Varnish servers back to my stats
server in Apache common log format so I can crunch the data there.
1. Does anyone have example scripts to share?
2. I am assuming that taking periodic dumps of new entries from the
memory log just isn't feasible, and thus running either varnishlog or
varnishncsa as a daemon is the way to go, right?
3. If I'm going to write logs to disk on the varnish server before
transferring them off to my stats server, will it make a significant
difference whether I use varnishncsa directly vs. using varnishlog
and then translating the logs with varnishncsa once they get to my
4. I assume that I need to start the varnishlog or varnishncsa daemon
after I start varnishd. Is that why the -d switch is there? To catch
any entries that sneak in between startup of the two processes?
Thanks for your help,
