My manager has asked me to create a Websense report listing the top 50 bandwidth users within a specific browse time, i.e. 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Is this possible? If so, please provide me with the "howto". We are running Websense 7.5. Thank you much.
You can create a Websense report listing the top 50 bandwidth users within a specific date range, but within 10am to 1:30pm is not available currently.
You may suggest this to our product team by the link below, https://www.websense.com/Mywebsense/feedback/Default.aspx
You could generate the report Susie suggests, then export it to Excel, sort by time, then manually pull out the date range you want.
Thanks to everyone for their replies. I wasn't hopeful there was a way to due browse time/bandwidth reports .
Susie, I'm taking your advise and will make a suggestion to the product team about such a report.
Again, thank you.
Any updates currently or in the near future regarding the feature to create a report with a specific time (i.e. 10am to 1:30pm)?
I've been resting with this too and found many a time where having this feature would've been beneficial and therefore, I read this thread with great interest and as a result, I'm resurrecting it in the hope that Websense will take note!
Here are my suggestions and why:
Reporting with a specific browse time - as we have core and non-core hours here, reporting separately on a morning and afternoon session would be beneficial to managers.
Reporting with a specific exclusion time - as some staff have fixed lunchtimes, this would create a fairer report when there's an investigation into a member of staff's internet usage as their lunchtimes could be excluded from the report.
As we have a policy whereby staff are allowed to use the Internet during their own time, this would be greatly beneficial in the way that we report on users.
To give you an example, I've used BLOXX web filtering in the past and it allowed you to either configure up to 3 exclusion time frames or 2 inclusion time frames.
Considering the WSG reporting module, how powerful it is and the data it collects, it came as a big surprise when I discovered that this provision wasn't there!
I shall put in an RFE for this as suggested and this is a great example of when Websense needs to understand how customers use their products and respond accordingly.
Not always but on this occasion, the customer knows best and is right!
I can't believe this option is not in Websense, it has been in SurfControl for years.
