    Default User Bandwidth?

    During our testing, we have tried to find out what a certain user was doing that consumed 1.8GB of data in a day. We know they went went to lots of websites and one site in particular was visited 13300 times, according to the Web Content user summary.. But how can you see what he did that consumed so much bandwidth? Is there a log or something I need to turn on to be able to see this? If not, that is something that would be nice to know. Just seeing that someone went to a site is one thing, but need a report that shows what sites, or more importantly, if they downloaded a file.... What was the file name and size? Any help would be appreciated... Thanks..

    Joey

    Hi Brainz,

    No graph specifically on what you are looking for, but I agree it would be useful. You can see the downloads if they were logged as a violation but I don't believe it shows the size....
    (The file download itself will be in the incident log)

    Actually, if you could give us a better idea of what you're looking for - I'll compile a RFE and file it!

    I've found in the past that the devil is in the details with this issue.

    specifically:
    What graph(s) would you like to see that would give you the visibility you want?
    What additional reports(s) would you need that would give you the visibility you want?

    Reports:

    1.) USER BANDWIDTH REPORT (Which sites are consuming the most bandwidth that this user visits.)
    2.) USER DOWNLOAD HISTORY REPORT (List files they've downloaded)
    3.) USER TRENDS REPORT (What category of websites they browse most)
    4.) REAL-TIME BANDWIDTH MONITOR: (Allow you to enter the bandwidth your get from your ISP, for instance we have 10MB out to the internet, but how much of that is being used at that current moment and then also by what? This is huge in troubleshooting spikes in internet usage that causes application slowdowns for remote users. This also ties into being able to see those people who are live-streaming audio, video,etc. and being able to disable their live streaming either temporarily or permanently with a simple click.)
    5.) TOP 25 USER VIOLATION SITES: (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, etc)
    6.) ADDITIONAL REPORT TIMES: (Quarterly, Semi-Annual, Annual)
    7.) CHART OF SITES VISITS BY CATEGORY: (Show a chart with a category that has the most internet activity to help the Network admins focus on a certain area to increase their productivity while increasing the productivity of a larger group of users instead of focusing on one or 2 websites that a particular user is using a lot. Easier to monitor and block sits that fall under a certain category and allow ones they honestly need access to.)

    I'd say overall, the Real-Time Bandwidth usage is a huge asset to have as well as the ability to see who is using the bandwidth, what site, live streaming ,etc and be user based. If you could pull a report on the fly, rather then wait for it as well, like maybe a "EMERGENCY REPORT" function... Where you can maybe pull all the data off to a seperate pc and run a Report Tool from the PC with the current data as not to slow down the Untangle router but let you report on the latest data pulled and find solutions. That would work and would only tax the untangle briefly while copying the data/logs to the designated PC. Remote Reporting! haha.. then it can always be real-time whenever you wanted it. Need to have a way to see how full the hard drive is, where performance issues are at, CPU usage, Memory usage, network card utilization, etc... Little things that will make Untangle shine!!

    you're my hero.

    I'm going to crawl through this and break them into seperate RFE's and file them all...

    Default Rfe?

    So what does the abbreviations RFE stand for? We used to have FRF, Feature Request Form... Assuming its something similar.

    Also.. If you want to get some quick attention, quickly get a VMWare Appliance made up to post on VMWare's site.. Will gain some quick interest from those users like myself who love to virtualize. Doesn't take long to do either.

    sorry to dredge up an old thread, but can someone tell me if this was implemented?
    I have just started using untangle and it would be useful to see how much bandwidth are used by individual sites (not just how many hits).
    Or have i missed this somewhere?

    Thanks
