Open Source Command line Web Server Monitor

I know I saw a video where Tom was showcasing a web monitoring tool that was like a graphical command line monitor. He could see active connections and I believe it was monitoring this forum. I can not find that video anywhere and I sure can’t remember the name of it. please help me figure this out

I am not sure what you are looking for, but I think it was GoAccess

Or was it LNAV?

Ahh yes, This thing is awesome, apache works great, going through the issue of nginx working now

This should work for NGINX

goaccess -f /var/log/nginx/access.log \
    --log-format='%^[%d:%t %^] "%^" %h "%r" "%u" "%^" %s %b "%R" %D "%^"' \
    --date-format=%d/%b/%Y \
    --time-format=%T \
    -o report.html

Thanks for the information, I ended up figuring that piece out, I added something similar to that to the goaccess.conf file and run the command just like I do for Apache in a cron job that runs every 5 minutes and dumps it out to an html. The Real-time-html didn’t seem to work, but it did in the console view. Thanks for the quick response. Love your content and share it all the time. Good business model as well
