Akita

Demo

Akita is a local HTTP log monitoring tool that runs in your terminal. With Akita, you can view a summary of you webserver's activity in real-time. All server access logs that use the Common Log Format are supported, including Apache and Nginx.

Akita is also a breed of dog originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. The Akita is courageous, a natural guardian of his family. Stubborn and willful, he won't back down from a challenge. [0]

Akita

Installation

Akita is available on PyPI and can be installed using pip:

# Requires python 3!
$ pip install akita

Alternatively, you can clone the repository and run the code directly:

$ git clone https://github.com/michael-lazar/Akita.git
$ cd Akita
$ python -m akita

Usage

Launch Akita by pointing it at the server access log file that you want to monitor:

$ akita /var/log/apache/access.log

You can also provide a stream via a unix pipe:

$ tail -n 1 -f /var/log/apache/access.log | akita -

If you want to try running Akita but you don't have a webserver to point it to, you can use the apache-loggen command line tool to generate fake log data.

$ gem install apache-loggen
$ apache-loggen --rate=10 | akita -
