What is the format of the log files which you get, is it text logs or they are in some proprietory format .

There are two products from Kiwi which I use for my smaller SOHO units:
Kiwi syslog daemon (to log events as syslog) and kiwi log viewer; they not would give the capability to monitor and report web usage, however can help in searching logs and creating syslog if not already configured [http://www.kiwisyslog.com/].

Please advice.

Thank you.

If sonicwall/zywal support syslog forwarding then you can install kiwi syslog daemon on a windows machine and configure the devices to send syslog information to the machine where syslog is running.

Then using the log viewer you would be able to view the logs.

Thank you.
