Hello Friends,

I am looking for a solution.
In my organization we are using Squid Proxy Server.
Now I want to implement restriction for user downloads.
So that except some users, others can not be able to download data more that 20MB.
And I want to monitor Bandwidth utilization for which I tried SARG but I want a tool which can provide more detailed information by means of GRAPHS and Reports.

Please suggest me.

Thanks and Regards,
Karan Rai

### To Block downloading ###
acl extndeny url_regex -i "/etc/squid/extndeny" #make a extndeny regular file and fill it with extensions
acl download method GET

http_access allow USER_NAME extndeny #allow USER_NAME to download
http_access deny extndeny download
http_access deny extndeny
Use MRTG if you want graphs and all that fancy stuff.

Please see your documentation on configuring Squid. You'll have to use groups though. And you might want to use SquidGuard along with it. It makes things easier.

There are quite a lot of tools for Squid logs. Some are Windows only commercial while most are Open Source. Try a Google search and a search in I know both the methods would work.
