Hi Michelle

I use Dansguardian with squid to control and monitor web access, it logs every http request by user ip and site address. Various white and black lists are used to control user access to the web.

Hope this helps

Stefan

Are squid's access logs not sufficient?

Good suggestion -- I checked the project page / example reports. Pretty nice.

If that's the sort of info OP is looking for, I also recommend taking a look at calamaris. Using the -R option you can see reports on which sites each client is visiting.

Thanks Stefan!

Give a thought to Cyberoam iView, I found it very good as per my requirement was concerned. It gives full fledged user based comprehensive reports in multiple formats.
It will give you in-depth visibility of Who is doing what in your network.

Have a look:

I am using SARG for a few days and I like it. But I have a question about this: there is a way to generate a report in a specific time? Let's say I want in this moment to have a report generated, for the traffic made only for this day. Is this possible with SARG or should I look for something else?
