Squid Analyzer - Squid Report Analyzer

 





Squid Proxy native log analyzer and reports generator with full statistics about times, hits, bytes, users, networks, top urls and top domains. Statistic reports are oriented toward user and bandwidth control; this is not a pure cache statistics generator.
