The Internet Reports section includes reports that
show details of traffic transferred through the firewall by the external
hosts (hosts outside your LAN). In order to identify your external hosts,
you need to first configure
your intranets by clicking the Intranet Settings
link from the Settings tab. When configured, all hosts
outside your configured
intranets will be considered as external hosts.
On the top right side of the Report screen, there will be three combo boxes. They are:
- Top 5
- Filter by
- Export as
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.
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:

The Top External Hosts (Sent+Received) graph shows the
top external hosts that are sending and receiving traffic through the
firewall. Here you can expect only IP's outside your LAN.
The table below the graph shows the IP address, along with the number
of hits, bytes received, bytes sent, and the total bytes (sent + received)
of traffic generated.
The Top External Protocol Groups (Sent+Received) graph
shows the top protocol groups used by external host for sending and receiving
traffic through the firewall. The table below the graph shows the protocol
group, along with the number of hits, % hits, total bytes of traffic generated
and what % of traffic each protocol group constitute to the total traffic.
The Top External Sites graph shows the top external
sites that were visited. This is destination based report which list the
external servers or sites which served more for the internal hosts. Transaction

external sites which are browsed more by your internal hosts. The table
below the graph shows the host name or IP address, along with the number
of hits, the total bytes of traffic to the site, and % of total traffic
to the particular external site.
The Top Conversations table lists details like host
which initiated the conversation, its destination, the protocol used for
the conversation along with the number of hits, the total bytes of traffic
generated and % of total traffic for the particular conversation.
