might be a long shot but we used Finjan security appliance (proxy) years ago. reporting function was awesome. you could create reports based on username, user's local ip, web address, time started, time finished, bandwidth used, display custom messages to users surfing during work hours etc. My HR dept used those reports in disciplinary hearings and managers were able to request certain data for certain users. Great tool but expensive

2. If you think about it, downloading static web content now and then does not mean you are spending time on it all that time in between. Because of that one can not have expectations for this report (of employees spending time on smth) to be accurate (and thus would mean diddly squat to any manager with more than air in betwixt their ears).

Otherwise this could be true: let us say the report shows you opening a NSFW (or facebook) URL at January 2nd from a DHCP lease that does not get used again in a year. And some other NSFW URL from the same domain at December 30th with the same lease again. having this data it could very well report that you've been spending all your time whacking your NSFW at the first URL. if the software assumes that employees have to leave at the end of the day adjust data so that it would be true for a day not a year. Still a ridiculous outcome of improperly interpreted data.
