Full Network internet logging

We have been using Websense for the past several years for internet logging, we dont currently block anything just log.
This year there is no money for Websense. Anyone know of a product to log and maybe have reports on internet traffic. We dont need to block anything.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Squid is a nice option. You may also have a look at Untangle;

Do you mean all internet traffic? Or just web traffic?

If you use a Sonicwall TotalSecure firewall, and enable the ViewPoint service (you also need a PC to run the Viewpoint database and report system - best not to use a main server) then you get comprehensive reports on ALL traffic in and out of the network. You also get various content filtering options some of which will be cheaper than Websense and may provide the level of cover you need.

Squid as suggested is fine for logging *web* access - provided you configure your network so that all web traffic HAS to go through the squid.
