I have a request from a customer asking to see what social networks and websites that team entered with time through their phones via wifi and their workstations for September 2015.


What do I need to do to access that information through a filter on the NG Firewall History Page? How would I get the information over the last 30+ days?


Thank you.

Hey Jonathan,


I think the Firewall History Page is not the best tool to gather information for creating a report. You should use the Barracuda NG Report Generator. Have a look at the download section of the Barracuda Portal.

Hi Jonathan,

the history is kept in memory and has got a default size of 2048 entries (Depending on your model).


You can increase that size but usually you can only see pass information back to a few hours.


But if you have application detection 2.0 enabled in all Rules, then you have a summary view up to one month back directly under Firewall/Monitor. There you can e.g. select the Top 50 Applications for the last month and can see how much traffic each application caused:


There is also a TOP 50 URL and a User/IP Statistic but you cannot specify a specific IP Range.

This is the information which the above mentioned reporter accesses and displays via .pdf.
