Managing Internet Usage

We currently have 650 users that has access to the internet via ISA. I am looking for an cost effective internet usage tool that can help me with the following:

1. To limit user internet data to a pre-determined value per month;

2. To measure general internet usage statistics.

What tools are available for this use?

There are third party ISA reporting addons out there. They can analyze the ISA logfiles and create reports about different topics.

Forefront TMG is the new Version of Microsoft ISA and has many build in reports, take a look at this page: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc984431.aspx

Onlyy good one I know for ISA Server - and I have tried a few....
What problem are you attempting to solve?

There are zillions of log parsers for W3C log format (like for UNIX/apache etc) with analog being most visible

Are you exceeding some quota at provider? You can clamp total speed on the internet-facing router based on SNMP interface counters.

Tx. I will also be testing http://www.netfeesoftware.com/NetFee/Index.htm with bpslitter.com

This is doing exactly what I am looking for.
Looks funny - maybe it is easier to sell entrance tickets to the office instead?
