Not directly with the ASA, but you can either set up a proxy, force all users to go through the proxy and lock all except the proxy from going out the ASA, then use the reporting features of your chosen proxy. Microsoft ISA is pretty good for this...

Setup NTOP on a PC connected to a hub that connects the inside of the ASA to the internal LAN switch (or on a SPAN port of the switch)
http://www.NTOP.org

Pop in an in-line filter appliance like iPrism http://www.stbernard.com/iPrism

Yes.
Enable logging to an external host, and use Sawmill automated syslog analyzer

Or FireGen

Here is a funny thing I ran the commands, but then when it failed I exited the screen and went around.  At some point it stopped accepting connections, I went back and changed a small setting and applied and it started working again, this has happened before where I have set something via CLI and had to check on syntax or something like that and gotten out and the system has stopped accepting connections?  I know its not part of the question but any thoughts?
