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,

There are quite a few to choose from at 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.
