Monitor per site in Varnish

Hi Magnus,

Will have a look at the logging buffer and see what I can do there. Is there any different way to gather this data if I instead would look at a vhost in varnish?

You can always hook yourself up directly to the logging buffer and read the data from there, or feed off varnishncsa in a pipe for example. IIRC the internal counters don't really give you things broken down per domain - because a domain is just on of a bazillion different things you might want to do things off...
