goaccess is 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, self-contained real-time HTML report (great for analytics, monitoring and data visualization), as well as a JSON, and CSV report.


apt-get install goaccess


Custom log format

Sometimes the log format isn't supported, then you'll have to specify the log format. For example:

goaccess \
    --log-format='%^,%^,%^: %h:%^ %^ [%d:%t.%^] %^ %^/%^ %^/%^/%^/%^/%^ %s %b - - ---- %^/%^/%^/%^/%^ %^/%^ {%v|} %^ %m ""%U"" "%q"' \
    --date-format '%d/%b/%Y' \
    --time-format '%H:%M:%S' \
