Utility able to call wget and varnishlog to extract Headers and return all failures
according expected caching policy.

This utility is configurable through a configuration file like:

url =
working_directory = /home/me/tmp/crawled_content
varnishlog_binary_path = varnishlog
email_address =
smtp_host = localhost
debug_level = debug

Last-Modified = True
Cache-Control = max-age=300
Vary = Accept-Language, Cookie, Accept-Encoding
Accept-Language, Cookie
Expires = True

[header url=.*/sitemap]
Last-Modified = True

[header content-type=.*/javascript]
Last-Modified = True
Cache-Control = max-age=3600
Expires = True

[no_header content-type=(image/.*|text/css)]
Vary = None

prohibited_file_name_list = WebSection_viewAsWeb
prohibited_folder_name_list = web_page_module

url : website to check
working_directory : fetched data will be downloaded
varnishlog_binary_path : path to varnishlog
email_address : email address to send result
smtp_host : smtp host to use
debug_level : log level of this utility (debug =>very verbose,

header_list : Key == Header id.
value: if equals to True, it means that header needs to be present in RESPONSE
if it is a tuple, the Header value must sastify at least one of the proposed values

erp5_extension_list: Optional section.
prohibited_file_name_list: which check that any links redirect to prohibited forms
like WebSection_viewAsWeb, Base_viewHistory, list, ...
prohibited_folder_name_list: usefull to detect that links does not redirect to
specified modules like, web_page_module, document_module, ...

This utility requires wget => 1.12
And a callable varnishlog.
The utility must be run on same server where varnish is running.

web_checker reads varnishlogs to detect if a Query goes to the backend.


This is an improved version of ZODB's ZODB/scripts/

* faster
* does not require Products.
* display current/old information for each class
* supports csv output by '-c' or '--csv'
* supports using DBM temporary storage to limit memory usage by '-d' or '--dbm', otherwise memory usage is O(n) of number of OIDs.
