Managing Firewall Reports

This describes how to generate reports using the SonicWall™ Cloud Global Management System (Cloud GMS) Reporting Module.
 

Flow Reports

The Flow Reports page provides administrators with configurable scheduled reports by applications, viruses, intrusions, spyware, and IP. Flow Reports statistics enable network administrators to view a top-level aggregate report of what is going on in your network.

Flow Reports Tabs

The Flow Reports Tabs contains details about incoming and outgoing network traffic. Each tab provides a faceted view of the network flow.

The Applications tab displays a list of Applications currently accessing the network.
The Users tab displays a list of Users currently connected to the network.
The IP tab displays a list of the IP addresses currently accessing the network.
The Viruses tab displays a list of detected viruses on the network.
The Intrusions tab displays a list of the attempted intrusions over the selected time period.
The Spyware tab displays a list of detected spyware on the network.
The Location tab displays a list of locations that users are accessing the network from.
The URL Rating tab displays a list of rated URLs on the network.
Flow Reports Toolbar

The Flow Reports Toolbar allows for customization of the Flow Reports interface. The ability to create rules and add items to filters allows for more application and user control. Different views, pause and play abilities, customizable data intervals and refresh rates are also available to aid in visualizing incoming, real-time data.

Unit Level > Intrusions > Detected and Blocked – Report Column “Intrusion”
Unit Level > Spyware > Detected and Blocked – Report Column “Spyware”
Unit Level > Gateway Viruses > Blocked – Report Column “Virus”

There are two types of policy screens that display when using this feature:
