Streaming and Chat Sites Reports - Firewall Reports


    The Streaming and Chat Sites Reports section includes reports on streaming and chat sites visited.

When configured, all hosts outside your configured intranet will be considered as external hosts.

The table below the graph shows the destination host name or IP address, along with the number of hits, bytes sent, bytes received, and the total bytes (sent + received) of traffic generated. On drill down, you will see the destination, protocol, hits, bytes in (MB), bytes out (MB), and total bytes (MB).

The table below the graph shows the protocol used by the internal host to access the streaming and chat site, along with the absolute number of hits, bytes sent, bytes received, and the total bytes (sent + received) of traffic generated.
