What is it?

GoAccess is an open source real-time web log analyzer and interactive viewer that runs in a terminal in *nix systems or through your browser.

It provides fast and valuable HTTP statistics for system administrators that require a visual server report on the fly.

See the JSON or CSV outputs.

Why GoAccess?

GoAccess was designed to be a fast, terminal-based log analyzer. Its core idea is to quickly analyze and view web server statistics in real time without needing to use your browser (great if you want to do a quick analysis of your access log via SSH, or if you simply love working in the terminal).

While the terminal output is the default output, it has the capability to generate a complete real-time HTML report (great for analytics, monitoring and data visualization), as well as a JSON, and CSV report.

it was hopeless because goaccess needed hundreds of gigabytes to map it all in an on-disk binary tree.
