Using squid for web monitoring


Hi,

We require a web proxy in order to monitor better how bandwidth is utilized by our users. The details below are required:

- sites accessed by users connected to our network
- hostname of the machine
- time and date

Is this possible through squid (perhaps even combined with a specific interface)?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Regards,

Joe

Yes. Since you're using Squid, you need to look at one of the several reporting tools for squid, which can be found on Squid's website:
http://www.squid-cache.org/Misc/log-analysis.html

Several do what you need and more.

Well, SARG is the 'standard' one that most folks use, but honestly that's a decision YOU need to make. They're all free, so download them and try them. See which one you think is best, easiest to install/maintain, etc.
