  1. Report of traffic for each WAN interface.

    Create a report containing sites and applications accessed by a specific interface (Port) and not just for WAN zone. Summary e Detail.

    will greatly facilitate troubleshooting.

  2. Monthly Reports - Scheduling Missing

    Scheduling Monthly Reports is not possible. On UTM this was a basic feature. They can be used to review the trend month by month.
    Strange to request such a basic feature.

  3. Specify time of day in report begin/end time

    I would like to see time based (not by dates alone but by time - like 7:00pm to 7:00am)

    A major use case for this is web usage reporting sorted by nodes, network or firewall rules.

    I'd like to see this as a drill down of the web usage activity reports.

  4. Report - Time spent for single Website/URL

    At the moment, there is no reports to know how much time a user spent on a website.
    This kind of report was available on Executive report and Web reports.
    Very useful to undestand how employees spend their time during working hours or custom date/time.

    Please add.

  5. Accurate and Instantaneous reporting of connection throughput

    We've had some users and services saturate our internet connection. Presently it is very difficult to determine in real time who is using how much internet. Bandwidth on the dashboard is inaccurate when reported per user or IP. usually very understated. Diagnostics > connection list is unsortable, and doesnt show traffic in Kbit/sec instead it's total bytes or total packets. Network > wan link manager > graphs are only updated once every 2 hours. Current activities > live connections is delayed and understated.

    No where can we get a list of traffic that adds up to teh bandwidth graph of…

  8. Web Browsing Reports and Audits for HR Purposes

    We have had numerous customers that have now requested these types of reports.

    These are essentially for HR Purposes so that in the unfortunate event that a users activity needs to be reviewed or audited these are readily available.

    Full Audit of Users browsing activity including date / time and category (This one is already possible but could be improved)


    • Display a list of page durations for when users were on certain websites.

    • A breakdown of categories visited. (in audit and overview reports)

    • Supply a chart of time spent per url, domain or category

    • Line/Bar graph of time spent per…

  10. Report traffic by firewall rule ID

    We need the traffic SYSTEM GRAPH based on RULE ID, because based on rule id (policy) we can easy to identify where the bandwidth consumes easily,
    because we purchased this firewall before two months. in old firewall we had that option, so please add this feature

  11. Add customizable log notifications so we can be emailed with an intrusion is detected

    Every other firewall i have used has had the ability to email alerts and log files based on customized thresholds. This feature is lacking from the XG. The only thing it allows you to do is setup notification settings for when IPSEC tunnel drops and comes up.

  12. Monitor firewall rule realtime bandwidth monitoring

    HI,
    It would be great if we can have live bandwidth monitoring for firewall rules for troubleshooting and performance.

  13. Reports in one page after 200 entries

    It becomes extremely tiring to generate page reports one by one when the entries exceed 200.

    We suggest that when generating the report, all entries found are present in a single PDF and so there is no need to enter each one and generate those reports.

  15. Export Logs to a .txt, .csv or .xls file

    We need the ability to EXPORT LOGS in EVENT VIEWER (all options) to a txt, csv or xls format.
    And not just the first page, but all the pages or option for x # logs pages. When trouble shooting its so much easier to export all the data to excel and then filter out the garbage and just look into the relevant data.
    I do this in WatchGuard right now and it makes finding needles in hay stacks a lot easier.

    The reports are their, just add the functionality to EXPORT.

  16. User Threat Quotient for safeguarding vulnerable users

    The User Threat Quotient (UTQ) is an excellent tool for identifying high risk users, based on security risks. I think this could be improved further to include categories such as Extremism/Radicalisation, and Self Harm/Pro Suicide. This will be of great use for education customers to help instantly identify high risk/vulnerable users in relation to the Prevent duty and Safeguarding guidelines.

  18. Report on User Bandwidth for Both Download and Upload

    Can we get XG on box reporting for user bandwidth usage for both download and upload. This will allow us to report on both how much a user has downloaded and uploaded. The uploaded data is important to see if users are uploading large amounts of data for dropbox or google drive.
