getting near real time request counts

What is the best way to get real time or near real time request counts per
url? I want to maintain this data in a database, redis or something else
that my app can use.

I have considered:

- writing something to parse the log generated by varnishncsa

- writing a replacement for varnishncsa that reads the shared memory logs
and does something else instead of writing a file

- using a varnish module to talk to redis or memcache

- some VCL hack to pass data through to the backend
