Apachetop is very simple command line utility that you can use to monitor traffic real-time. It accomplishes this by parsing the apache logfiles and displaying meaningful output to the screen.
How to install Apachetop
yum -y install apachetop
How this used to display the http request
# apachetop -r 5 -T 30
This means apachetop will refresh every 5 second and will display the last request made from now to 30 second later.
The asterisk represents a Selected Line.
apachetop contains built-in shortcuts:
- Up/Down arrow keys: switch to another request.
- Right arrow key: see the details of the request you have chosen, including the visitor’s IP address and the referrer, etc.
- Left arrow key: return to the list.
- p: pause the display.
- q: quit the program.
- h: display help info.
