Webalyzer for firewalls


Is the application Webalyzer good for getting reports on firewall activity, or is there a better application for that purpose?

I didn't realize Webalyzer could be used for that purpose. (In fact, I don't think it can. But it would be nice to proven wrong.)

For Linux / netfilter logging I am simply using logwatch to keep an eye on things. For FreeBSD / pf I rolled my own. The limitation here is that you're seeing a daily or weekly rollup of logged packet activity.

Does that work for you, or are you looking for something that will keep longer term summaries and pretty pictures (e.g. a Webalyzer-like display)?

Hi there --

Thanks for your reply. I am looking for something that has the term summaries and a webalyzer-like display. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, no -- I'm not using anything like that.

I saw this thread on the topic, which may or may not be helpful. A quick consult with the google resulted in a variety of unmaintained (?) analyzer app hits.

Post back if you find something that fits the bill...
