good day everyone,

we have a cisco ASA 5520 which has syslog capabilites but i do not see where i can monitor websites our users are hitting, is there any way to get this done via the ASDM or with a third-party application that works with the ASA device or is inexpensive or open source? thank you all.

If you turn on http inspection, the normal syslog will capture the URL requests.    

Example:
Sample URL Log
The following is an example of a URL logging syslog message:
192.168.69.71 accessed URL 10.0.0.1/secrets.gif

You can change the class inspection to include http if needed.   Just follow this doc to do so:

Its in CONFIGURATION -> FIREWALL -> SERVICE POLICY RULES  

Here's a doc that explains how to do it.  ( I wasn't sure about your version, buts its pretty much the same)
