Plum

Plum is a real-time web server access log analyser. It allows the user to access the statistics using a web dashboard.

Installation

Plum is written in Go which means that the Go tools can be used to install the program using the following command:

$  go get github.com/boreq/plum/cmd/plum

If you prefer to do this by hand clone the repository and execute the make program:

$ git clone https://github.com/boreq/plum
$ make
$ ls build
plum

Usage

Plum can track a single log file in order to produce live data as well as load any number of past log files in order to present historical data points.

A common scenario on a logrotate enabled server is following a single log file in order to produce live data as well as loading any number of past log files in order to present historical data points.

$ ls
my.access.log
my.access.log.1.gz
my.access.log.2.gz
my.access.log.3.gz
my.access.log.4.gz

You can use the following command to generate a default config file:

$ plum default_config > config.json

Based on that prepare a config which will load the current access log as well as the older logs:

$ cat config.json
{
    "serveAddress": "127.0.0.1:8118",
    "websites": [
        {
            "name": "example.com",
            "follow": "/path/to/example.access.log",
            "load": [
                "/path/to/example.access.log.*"
            ],
            "logFormat": "combined"
        }
    ]
}

Execute the program:

$ plum run config.json
INFO starting listening                       source=server address=127.0.0.1:8118

Navigate to http://127.0.0.0:8118 to see the results.
