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).

Apache logs nothing for a single page request in warn level. But, here’s the same request in debug level: Fri Feb 01 22:15 2019 authzcore:debug pid 9:tid 75872 modauthzcore.c(820): client AH01626: authorization result of Require all granted: granted. This dataset is from apache access log server. It contains: ip address, datetime, gmt, request, status, size, user agent, country, label. The dataset show malicious activity in IP address, request, and so on. You can analyze more as intrusion detection parameter. The format argument to the LogFormat and CustomLog directives is a string. This string is used to log each request to the log file. It can contain literal characters copied into the log files and the C-style control characters ' ' and ' t' to represent new-lines and tabs. Literal quotes and backslashes should be escaped with backslashes.

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