My apologies if this is off-topic for this forum. Our f/w is a 515e and it logs to a syslog server. My question for the group is do you know or use any kind of web reporting software?

We had an issue just recently where a laptop was severely infected with malware. The director wanted to know where the user had been as the history had been erased. I can use the logs produced by the Pix but as you know they can be a pain to compile into a report for a non-techie.

Do you want a syslog analysis tool for the PIX or for your AAA Server? If PIX (please see below) and if AAA/ACS have a look at 'extraxi'. They are a Cisco partner and they do a great job with ACS reporting.

This is from an older post:

Have you looked at Cisco MARS? (Its actaully a SEM)

(Found it to be pretty nice)

If you want a real-time (bandwith monitoring tool, fireplotter is pretty cool:


(never tried it tough)

(had serious performance issues)

Please rate if helpful
