We currently run a Untangle 7 server (64bit) in our district's high school. While we still have plenty of issues that we are working with support with there is one thing we would like to see added to Untangle.
We are a large site and our web accessible logs fill in roughly 30 seconds on a average day. We would very much like to see a stand alone reports server. Basically a replication server that would hold its data for an extended period of time (months) and allow for reports to be run on it without affecting the main server. Also this would allow the long term storage of data for true historical reporting.
Having a separate backup/reports server would solve some of the issues we are experiencing with the new "lite" version of the reports module. Our older firewall used a similar setup which allowed us to dig into the logs while not impacting the performance of the device.
One more benefit would be a database or custom reports built-in or available on the forum/wiki. For instance you need to know every site a specific user/host has hit in the last 2 weeks or how many users have hit a specific site. Writing a quick query and posting it on the forums or wiki would allow someone to quickly access the data without having to learn the entire database structure. It would allow the administrator to choose what data he wants vs. wait for the end of day report or wait till it gets included in the reports module by default.
Having a standalone reports server/backup of event logs would defiantly add a significant amount of flexibility to Untangle's currently limited reports system. Does anyone know if this is feasible with Untangle's new database structure?
