GoAccess – analyzer and interactive viewer of apache or nginx logs

GoAccess is an open source real-time Apache 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.

Essentially, the way GoAccess works is that it will parse the well-known Apache access log file, from there, GoAccess will collect data from the parsed log and it will display it to the console or the X terminal. The collected information or generated reports will be displayed to the user/sysadmin in a visual/interactive window. Reports include:

General Statistics, bandwidth etc.
