Is there a web app that:

  1. Gets a query from a third party that could be anything, for example ?foo=bar&some=thing.
  2. Displays to the owner a dashboard of all the queries it got in the last X minutes (optional: hopefully after dividing the query entries into a nice table, assuming the names like foo and some are always the same).


  • Open a terminal to your Unix webserver, and issue this command: tail -100f /var/log/apache/access_log . The filename can be different, and you can augment the command to your needs (e.g. filter only requests with http status 200, OK. – knb Oct 26 '20 at 8:00
  • I see your point, but I've asked for a web app. Also keep in mind access_log is a giant file that's not easy to work with on a frequent level. – LWC Oct 27 '20 at 0:37
  • You can wrap this shell command as a cgi script. Maybe there are log-viewer apache modules, or nginx modules that do the same thing, just a bit differently. – knb Oct 27 '20 at 11:15
