Thank you Tollef. I create the log using:
 # varnishlog -a -w /var/log/varnish/varnish.log &

And now I read it using:
 # varnishlog -r /var/log/varnish/varnish.log

I get some lines like:
   14 TxHeader     b Referer:

The point is that I need to make varnish accept such percentages or any
other syntax in VCL file. So that some pages are cached longer based on
their Arabic address (Like the one in the referer above).

Any ideas?
Thank you in advance :)
