fwlogwatch seems has the limitation of generating reports if the firewall log is huge. It will hangs the server.

Any other report can generate report from iptables log?

webfwlog looks good, I am evaluating it too. It can generate report base on iptables logs.

I am facing the problem on saving the report with the error
"Cannot open database, report not saved"

Does anyone use webfwlog before? Any idea with this?
