Varnish Live: Real-time, on-the-go performance monitoring


Varnish Live

The Varnish Live app is an essential real-time, on-the-go tool to proactively monitor and optimize your Varnish instances to ensure the highest possible web performance.

Varnish Live frees monitoring from a specific location: as a mobile app, it can be used to monitor Varnish performance from anywhere, helping teams identify, troubleshoot and manage issues proactively.

*Only available with a Varnish Enterprise subscription, Varnish Live is not a standalone app and draws on VCS data.


  • Simplicity in real-time: Varnish Live delivers an instant, real-time overview of performance stats and data that pulls data from your existing VCS configuration. Varnish Live is your first line of defense in identifying traffic and performance patterns or potential problems as – or before – they happen.
  • Visual: Varnish Live presents data in a simple, user-friendly visual/graph format making it easy to immediately see where issues are coming up or that performance is stable.
  • Easily share: Varnish Live also makes it easier to share stats/info with other parts of your organization that don’t get access to or need more visual representations of performance and the crucial nature of real-time monitoring and anticipating problems before they become critical.
  • Mobile/flexible: Varnish Live is a mobile app so can be used anywhere. You are not tied down, monitoring performance from a single place.
  • Peace of mind: Varnish Live shows that instance(s) are up and running and shows in real-time how they are running.
