  1. 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…

  2. Mac Addresses of the Wi-Fi connected devices can not be seen.

    We did logging configuration with syslog for the model Sophos SG85W but mac addresses of Wi-Fi connected devices can not be seen in the logs.

    This feature is important for filtering specific devices. Could you please add mac addresses of the devices in the logs.

  3. Improved VPN Access Reporting

    Needs a report that shows the time a vpn user logged in or connects and disconnects from the VPN. Historical data for VPN usage, current VPN reporting is not enough as it doesn't show connect/disconnect times.

  9. Allow changes to syslog format for easier reporting in 3rd party logging tools

    The "syslog" format is not very sysloggy.for example some fields are quoted, some are not, blank values are included but not quoted making it unnecessarily difficult to parse. permitted. Be nice to be able to specify custom formats to avoid messing about with, for example, logstash filters.

  11. Time-Based Web Bandwidth Usage Reporting

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

  14. report on user

    Currently the system cannot report on specific domains - urls that users have entered to a search engine.

    Need a report that can do this without reporting on ALL the urls required to make a page work - dont want to see multiples of the same urls or the extra urls required to make a page display - only want a list of what users are trying to access
