    AgentNul, some sort of report by site (like a report for facebook.com?) sounds like an excellent idea.

    ronsolve, good point - added to the list. thanks!

    In U4W 6.2.1 I'd like a mod to Reports, specifically allowing "Include Incident Reports in emailed reports" functionality to be based per email address specified, ie, I would like to receive two daily reports, ie, one with Incident Reports included, one without, so I'd like to be able to enter my email address twice and only on one of them have the "Include Incident Reports in emailed reports" checkbox ticked.

    Default Detailed Daily Reports needed.

    One of our largest selling points for Untangle is the ability to provide managers at different locations the ability to monitor internet activity on their networks by user/host (IP Address) using the emailed detailed daily reports.

    The 2 most important features for us were the User Summary Report and the Web Filter - Logged Violations (time). Generally, we will setup an Untangle box at a business and just "Log" activity for the first couple of weeks. Using the above reports, the onsite manager could then determine which sites or "categories" need to be blocked and take action accordingly. It also enabled manager to determine which users are abusing internet usage and take action accordingly. I understand that some of these features are still available in the web console for the reports rack/module, but this would be very inconvinient for the managers of our sites who have become used to having these reports simply emailed to them every day or night and would find logging into the web console and navigating to the reports module to run specific reports a daunting task. For many, a key marketing point is "Ease of Use"

    Without the above reporting features we will no longer be able to market Untangle as a useful product for monitoring internet activity.

    I realize you think this is a large step backwards, but realize our focus is on online reporting. If you don't want to use the online reporting tool then I can understand your frustration.

    I understand if y'all don't want the UT Server to have to generate a lot of pages of reports every night/week/month, though I'd greatly prefer it. What would be great then is if the web-based reports could do it on the fly, and that could be printed in some manner. If I click on a user/site/port, I could then generate a report on that tells me what makes up that statistic, like the old "Web Filter-Client Summary" (that's the one I miss most), or whichever, and then print or pdf from that screen.

    I like this idea. To via web report have the pdf icon next to the csv. Pdf will eliminate the 365 row limit with older versions of excel and getting errors of it not opening all the information. Be able to download on the fly a detailed surfing history by user and a place for all your total users. Reason is my daily duties is going through all users surfing history and seeing what websites have passed that should not have and blocking them. And yes I have found some porn sites that I had to manually block.
    If it were this way, it would be harder to get a 1000 hit limit for a single user in a day. As far as the emailed new pdf. It is nice to see bandwidth usage and most sites hit, but I doubt that I will find most users have went to the same bad site that day to make it in the top 5. I think the new emailed pdf should contain at the least your users surfing history for that day.
    While as any IT admin will understand, people are resistant to change, I guess we are not exempt. I do see some change as benefiting. Like mime types to passlist. This is the last that I will voice my opinion on this and hope that the ability thru the reports to monitor my LAN properly will come back. Still I think it's a great product and it is better to be proactive than reactive which is what this product has allowed us to do. Thanks and keep up the good work Untangle team.

    Not something that was in the PDF Version, however thought I would throw in my 2c while it was all up for discussion.

    Is there a way that page requests can be added? I mean, looking through website hits is all well and good, but explaining to a technophobe manager the difference between number of hits (including one for all images etc etc.) and as such it is next to impossible to see how "much" someone is actually actively browsing some websites that display a lot of content, especially news websites that have a plethora of advertising and images.

    It would be especially handy to just capture the HTML requests from the user to certain domains and the times so you can actually map a users activity, rather than an incremental hit for every item on a HTML page which is all well and good, but for true activity reporting is a little like guess work. Whereas if you could see, that user x made YY HTML requests to this website (as opposed to ZZZZZ "hits"), it gives a much clearer image for the bosses that actually want to see and review these reports.

    The web server has hits vs requests, the client has hits vs requests... the router? Nope... sorry.

    There is no way from a network standpoint to determine the original http request from the pile of requests that follow it. After all, an HTTP get is an HTTP get.

    Sorry but that doesn't sound right, there are several ways, proxy etc. that I am aware of.

    Bigger vendors such as websense have this feature, so it definitely is possible, how its accomplished may be variable but the point remains, it is a very useful statistic.

    Websense has the feature, and I can tell you from personal experience... it lies.

    It's just making a guess based on the initial hit in the logs and ascribing a certain number of seconds to a "visit" based on packet frequency. It isn't accurate.

    but even based on that, it is more accurate than a complete guess based on the number of hits? I mean every website has different hits for every page, even a figure that is perhaps not entirely accurate is better than a complete an utter stab in the dark?
