Processing logs

I'm trying to convert some varnish logs using

varnishncsa -r log > log.ncsa

It runs out of memory on a 4Gb box while processing a 4.7Mb log. That doesn't bode well for when it gets to the larger logs...

Also I notice that varnishncsa won't run unless I have varnishd running on the same box - even when asked to read from a log file.

Is there another way of extracting human readable / greppable logs?
