Inbound Outbound Reports


 

The Inbound Outbound Traffic Reports section includes reports that show traffic details when inbound traffic (traffic coming into LAN) and outbound traffic (traffic going out of LAN) for the firewall, are separated. In order to separate inbound and outbound traffic, you need to first configure your intranets by clicking the Intranet Settings link from the Settings tab. When configured, the Inbound Outbound Traffic Reports shows you which hosts and what protocol groups have been contributing the most traffic on either side of the firewall.

 

On the top right side of the Report screen, there will be three combo boxes. They are:

  • Top 5
  • Filter by
  • Export as

Top 5

 

The Top 5 combo box lets you choose the level of detail in the reports. By default, the top five values are shown. To show more than 15 values, the report uses only tables. There is an option to display the Graph only.

  • Top 5 (graph & table)
  • Top 10 (graph & table)
  • Top 15 (table only)
  • Top 20 (table only)
  • Top 25 (table only)
  • Graph only

Below each graph click the Hide Table link to hide the table. Click the Show Table link to see the table again.

 

Filter by

 

The Filter by combo box lets you choose the field of filter in the reports. There will be three field values for filtering. They are:

  • Source
  • Destination
  • Protocol
  • Summary

Export as

 

The Export as combo box lets you choose the format of the reports for export. There will be two formats for exporting. They are:

  • PDF
  • CSV

Click on the PDF to export this report to PDF. Click on the CSV to export this report to CSV format (comma separated values).

 

The Top Hosts - Inbound Firewall Traffic graph shows the top hosts contributing to traffic inbound (traffic coming into LAN) to the firewall. The table below the graph shows the host name or IP address, along with the number of hits and the total bytes of traffic generated.

 

If the host (IP / DNS Name of the machine which initiated the conversation) is INSIDE the LAN (Internal Host), then their RECEIVED will be counted as inbound and If the host (IP / DNS Name of the machine which initiated the conversation) is OUTSIDE the LAN (External Host) then their SENT will be counted as inbound.

 

The Top Hosts - Outbound Firewall Traffic graph shows the top hosts contributing to traffic outbound (traffic going out of LAN) to the firewall. The table below the graph shows the host name or IP address, along with the number of hits and the total bytes of traffic generated.

 

If the host (IP / DNS Name of the machine which initiated the conversation) is INSIDE the LAN (Internal Host), then their SENT will be counted as outbound and If the host (IP / DNS Name of the machine which initiated the conversation) is OUTSIDE the LAN (External Host) then their RECEIVED will be counted as outbound.

 

The Top Protocol Groups - Inbound Firewall Traffic graph shows the top protocol groups contributing to traffic inbound to the firewall. The table below the graph shows the protocol group, along with the number of hits and the total bytes of traffic generated.

 

The Top Protocol Groups - Outbound Firewall Traffic graph shows the top protocol groups contributing to traffic outbound to the firewall. The table below the graph shows the protocol group, along with the number of hits and the total bytes of traffic generated.
