GUI - Dashboard, Logging, Report
NxFilter can keep its log data up to 400 days and generates daily, weekly and a user level reports.

On the dashboard of NxFilter, There are several charts for showing the activity in your network for the last 2 hours. You also can see the recent block logs for the last 12 hours.

There are Total Count and Unique Count for NxFilter reports. The difference between Total and Unique is from NxFilter's logging system. To reduce the amount of disk access, NxFilter keeps all the log data in its memory space before it flushes out the data once a minute. If there is a request for the same domain from the same user in a minute, it only increases the count for the data. So, Total means the sum of all the requests and Unique means the count for all the unique data.

Logging > DNS Request
You can search through DNS request log data with various conditions on 'Logging > DNS Request'. The log data is being updated once a minute to reduce the load of your system.

Use square brackets for the exact matching keyword on log search.
