GoAccess is an open-source, console-based, interactive web server log viewer. It allows you to view and analyze web server logs via ncurses-based terminal interface in real-time. GoAccess parses growing web server log files (e.g., /var/log/apache2/access.log) incrementally on the fly, and produces real-time statistics on web server’s HTTP traffic. Output statistics and colors are fully customizable to suit your needs and preferences, and can include a wide range of metrics like top visitor IP addresses and requests, client operating systems, browsers and geolocation, referrals, HTTP status codes, etc. GoAccess log parser supports many popular log formats, for example, those used by Apache, Nginx, Squid, AWS CloudFront, AWS elastic load balancing, and Google cloud storage, as well as any custom log formats. It stores collected statistics in in-memory storage for fast access, and optionally can store them persistently on disk for later loading or export them to HTML, JSON or CSV reports for offline analysis.
