Display internet bandwidth using SonicWALL TZ600 firewall

A company I am supporting has a SonicWALL TZ600 firewall.

We need to audit and determine how much internet bandwidth each user is using and what type of bandwidth is being used (for streaming video, streaming audio, file downloads, etc.)

How can this be setup within the SonicWALL TZ600 firewall?

You have to deal with their sales department if you want to obtain directly from Sonicwall, but here is a link for a virtual trial: https://www.sonicwall.com/en-us/lp/analyzer-virtual-trial

Otherwise, here is a link from Firewalls.com showing you Analyzer licenses: https://www.firewalls.com/products/firewalls/sonicwall/sonicwall-upgrades-software/sonicwall-analyzer

If I recall correctly, you have to download the software from your MySonicwall account (without access to that, there's no way to download).

Assuming it's licensed for cgss, you can see real-time but no aggregate weekly or monthly type reporting, that requires a viewpoint (I think they call it analyzer now) pr gms server.

if you are looking per user reporting, and assuming you have an active directory, you can setup Single Sign-On to translate IP addresses into Active Directory users.

When using Analyzer software, you can then create aggregate reports per user.

You need the Analyzer software if you want to be able to keep records for any length of time. Everything that J Spoor mentioned applies. If you only care about by IP, then you only need to get Analyzer set up. If you want by user (as you stated, and which would make far more sense), then you need to get SSO setup.

Please provide me with the URL addresses of where I can download or purchase this analyzer software from.
J SpoorTMECommented:
You indeed download Analyzer from your mysonicwall.com.

Then within mysonicwall.com you can activate the analyser free trial on the firewall licenses.

Analyzer by itself does nto require licenses, but the firewalls reporting to the analyzer need the analyzer license.
