varnishncsa does not use the modified URL from within varnish VCL

Component: varnishncsa Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: varnishncsa


I modify the URL within my VCL using inline C code with something like:


if (strlen(VRT_r_req_url(sp)) < 1000) {

syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s", VRT_r_req_url(sp)); char url[1024] = ""; strcpy(url, VRT_r_req_url(sp)); (*URLRemoveTime_fn)(url); syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s", "Modified URL:"); syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s", url); VRT_l_req_url(sp, url, vrt_magic_string_end);

} else {

syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s", "VARNISH URL TOO LONG"); syslog(LOG_ERR, "%s", VRT_r_req_url(sp));



The above is within the "sub vcl receive" subroutine.

I have done a number of tests showing that the modified URL does get cached within Varnish and is hashed against the modified URL. I add X-Cache (Hit/Miss?) and X-Cache-Hits HTTP headers to show that my modified URL is in fact being returned from Varnish and not the backend Apache server.

Varnishncsa always shows the original URL and not my modified version of the URL. My backend apache server log DOES show the modified URL.

I would like varnishncsa to show the data with the modified URL and not the original URL request.

I can provide any additional information needed.

This is intentional. If you want to log something else, use std.log("foo:" + req.url) and the %{VCL_Log:foo}x format.
