The Problem Need the ability to track web traffic for a specific hours worth of logs. The Solution Using GoAccess to parse Apache logs that are rotated into hour chunks. The Goal Install GoAccess to parse webserver logs. Use Ansible Playbooks for the installation, configuration and for re-usabilty of GoAccess on other servers. Keep it simple by rotating logs on the hour.
