Any reliable report generating tool for squid proxy?


Dear friends,

I have been using Sarg to generate reports from logs files of my squid proxy. It was very good at the beginning but now I am having lots of problems from it. The report generated no longer show sensible output. Maybe because the log files are getting too huge.
Wondering if any of you know a better log analysis tool to generate reports from my proxy squid.

The requirement basiclly need to generate a report that hows information about the sites that users connected. the bytes, the top users etc. For monitoring purposes.

thanks for taking time reading my question,

regards
niceman

There are quite a few to choose from at http://www.squid-cache.org/Scripts/. I used to use squidlog (no longer listed) which was OK and I've heard some good things about Calamaris which is still listed.

I'd also recommend using a tool like logrotate to keep the log file size down.
