ER EnterpriseReporterIntroduction

Thank you for choosing to evaluate the 8e6 Technologies ER Enterprise Reporter. The ER is designed to readily obtain information about end users’ Internet activity via log files (text files containing Web access data) from a source device such as the 8e6

R3000 Enterprise Filter.

ER “H” server models include RAID technology for fault tolerance and high performance.

The ER is comprised of the ER server and client application. Once the ER server is configured and log files have populated the database, an administrator can use the ER client reporting application to virtually generate an unlimited number of queries and reports from data in the database. This data shows which end user is accessing which site, the duration of each site visit, and the frequency of these visits, and can help administrators identify Internet usage abusers, develop policies, and target sites to be filtered, in order to maximize bandwidth utilization and productivity. The client gives the administrator the ability to interrogate massive datasets through flexible drill-downtechnology, until the desired view is obtained, and then memorize and save the view to auser-definedreport menu for repetitive, scheduled execution and distribution.
