How to do unified reports?

  • I was using Untangle up until a few weeks ago and one of the main things I liked about it was the summary reporting that it does. I've seen several different packages for reporting such as bandwidthd, SARG, etc, but I'm wondering if there is a package that compiles the various logs into a summary of activity. For example, some packages such as Unbound have the option to log usage, but I don't see an easy way to access that information except by ssh'ing into pfsense and viewing the log manually. Since I'm setting this up for other people that aren't savvy with linux, that's not really an option.

    If there's not something like this, how do you guys do reporting normally?

    Also, I've been wanting to learn how to program pfsense packages anyways so if there isn't a package like that, there's nothing like a practical project to help you learn faster ;)
