FTP Usage Reports


 

The FTP Usage Reports section includes reports on the top protocols under the FTP protocol group, that have been used to generate traffic through that device.

 

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 Protocols - Sent and Top Protocols - Received graphs show the top FTP protocols sending and receiving data across the device respectively. The Top Protocols - Sent + Received graph shows the top protocols grouped by summing the number of bytes sent and received by each protocol. The table below each graph shows the protocol 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 Hosts The top hosts generating traffic using this protocol
Top Destinations The top destinations accessed by using this protocol
Top Conversations The top conversations using protocols in this protocol group

 

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 Protocols The top FTP protocols used by this user
Top Destinations The top destination hosts or IP addresses accessed by this user using FTP protocols
Top Hosts The top hosts used by this user to generate traffic using FTP protocols

 

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 Protocols The top FTP protocols used by this host
Top Destinations The top destination hosts or IP addresses accessed by this host using FTP protocols
Top Conversations The top conversations initiated by host using protocols in this protocol group

 

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

 

The Top URLs table shows the top URL's or web sites that were accessed using protocols in the FTP protocol group.
