What is it?

GoAccess is an open source real-time web log analyzer and interactive viewer that runs in a terminal in *nix systems. It provides fast and valuable HTTP statistics for system administrators that require a visual server report on the fly.

  • Apache virtual hosts

Why GoAccess?

The main idea behind GoAccess is being able to quickly analyze and view web server statistics in real time without having to generate an HTML report. Although it is possible to generate an HTML, JSON, CSV report, by default it outputs to a terminal.

You can see it more as a monitor command tool than anything else.

RT @Dirk_Gently: I think I’m going to use GoAccess (http://t.co/vN4ciGKX6I) for log analysis, this is pretty neat.
