Functionality at a Glance...
Completely Real Time
All panels and metrics are timed to be updated every 200 ms on the terminal
output and every second on the HTML output.
Nearly All Web Log Formats
GoAccess allows any custom log format string. Predefined options include,
Apache, Nginx, Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing, CloudFront, etc
Track Application Response Time
Track the time taken to serve the request. Extremely useful if you
want to track pages that are slowing down your site.
Incremental Log Processing
Need data persistence? GoAccess has the ability to process logs incrementally
through the on-disk B+Tree database.
Only one dependency
GoAccess is written in C. To run it, you only need ncurses as a dependency.
That's it. It even features its own RFC6455 compliant Web Socket
Minimal configuration needed
You can just run it against your access log file, pick the log
format and let GoAccess parse the access log and show you the stats.
Determine the amount of hits, visitors, bandwidth, and metrics for slowest
running requests by the hour, or date.
Metrics per Virtual Host
Have multiple Virtual Hosts (Server Blocks)? A panel that displays which
virtual host is consuming most of the web server resources.
Color Scheme Customizable
Tailor GoAccess to suit your own color taste/schemes. Either through the
terminal, or by simply updating the stylesheet on the HTML output.
Real-time log analysis through a Dashboard in multiple output formats
A beautiful terminal dashboard
By default, GoAccess outputs to a terminal in real time. GoAccess' dashboard
gives you an overview of server metrics by displaying summaries of different
reports as panels on a single scrollable view.
Prefer a real-time HTML report than the terminal?
Apart from the terminal output, GoAccess allows you to generate
CSV reports. You can
even email the HTML file since it is composed of a single file with no external
file dependencies, how neat is that! Check out the Live Demo.
Spot aggressive hosts/bots
Spotting aggressive crawlers/bots and identifying who's eating your bandwidth
is easy with the host panel. It also features the ability to display a list of
user agents per each host.
Easy to navigate panels
The dashboard is composed of different reports — report panels can be expanded
for more information so you can quickly check the correlations between
