If you are new to Varnish, here is what Wikipedia says about ti:

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator designed for content-heavy dynamic web sites. In contrast to other HTTP accelerators, such as Squid, which began life as a client-side cache, or Apache, which is primarily an origin server, Varnish was designed from the ground up as an HTTP accelerator.

You can also read Varnish Cache homepage.

Well today I want to show you how to purge all the cache without the need to restart the daemon.

varnishadm -T url.purge .

That will flush the cache.
