Protocol Usage Reports


 

The Protocol Usage Reports section includes reports that show bandwidth usage based on all the protocol groups generating traffic through the device.

 

Separate reports are available for Web, Mail, FTP, and Telnet protocol groups. Click on the respective reports to view bandwidth usage details.

 

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).

 

Click on the Protocol Groups link under the Settings tab to see what protocols fall under each protocol group, and how to edit them.

 

The Top Protocol Groups - Sent and Top Protocol Groups - Received graphs show the top protocol groups sending and receiving data across the device respectively. The Top Protocol Groups - Sent + Received graph shows the top protocol groups grouped by summing the number of bytes sent and received by each protocol group. The table below each graph shows the protocol group name, number of hits, and the number of bytes sent or received as applicable.

 

Drill down from each of the above graphs to see the following graphs:

 

Graph Description
Top Protocols The top protocols in this protocol group
Top Hosts The top hosts generating traffic using protocols in this protocol group
Top Users The top users generating traffic using protocols in this protocol group
Top Destinations The top destinations accessed by protocols in this protocol group
Top Conversations The top conversations using protocols in this protocol group
Traffic Distribution - Working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by each protocol group during working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.
Traffic Distribution - Non-working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by each protocol group during non-working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.

 

The Top Hosts - Sent and Top Hosts - Received graphs show the top hosts sending and receiving data across the device respectively. The Top Hosts - Sent + Received graph shows the top hosts grouped by summing the number of bytes sent and received by each host. The table below each graph shows the host name or IP address, the protocol used, number of hits, and the number of bytes sent or received as applicable.

 

Drill down from each of the above graphs to see the following graphs:

 

Graph Description
Top Destinations The top destination hosts or IP addresses accessed by these hosts
Top Users The top users using this host in generating traffic
Traffic Distribution - Working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by the host during working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.
Traffic Distribution - Non-working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by the host after working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.

 

The Top Users - Sent and Top Users - Received graphs show the top users sending and receiving data across the device respectively. The Top Users - Sent + Received graph shows the top users grouped by summing the number of bytes sent and received by each protocol group. The table below each graph shows the user name, the protocol used, number of hits, and the number of bytes sent or received as applicable.

 

Drill down from each of the above graphs to see the following graphs:

 

Graph Description
Top Destinations The top destinations accessed by the user
Top Hosts The top hosts used by user in generating traffic
Traffic Distribution - Working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by the user during working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.
Traffic Distribution - Non-working Hours The amount of traffic that was generated by the user after working hours, which is the daily average value since the time the server was started.

 

The Top Rules table shows the top protocol groups triggering firewall rules, the (Rule Number IDs) rules that were triggered, the destination and the number of hits.
