Kerio Control provides detailed statistics on the user's activity, the volume of transferred data, visited websites, and web categories. This information helps you understand the browsing activities and habits of individual users. This article provides the general steps required to enable the statistics on your Kerio Control.
In Kerio Control's administration interface, navigate to Accounting and Monitoring > Data Gathering. The following window displays.
Under the Data Gathering tab, check the 'Gather internet usage statistics' box. Statistics settings also affect the monitoring of the volume of transferred data against the user's quotas. If you uncheck the 'Gather internet usage statistics' option, Kerio Control cannot count the transferred data against user's quotas.
If confirmed to be legal in your jurisdiction, enable the 'Gather user's activity records' under Statistics; this option allows for the monitoring and logging of the browsing activity of individual users.
Warning: Please, keep in mind that whether if it is legal or not to gather users' activities varies by country. Before setting this option, make sure that the laws in your jurisdiction permit it, and if in doubt, contact your legal department. Disable this option to reduce demands on the firewall and save disk space on the server.
Use the 'Delete statistics older than' field to specify how long the data will be kept. To save disk space, keep statistics only as long as necessary.
Select the appropriate groups, if any, in the 'Gather group statistics for these groups' field, to gather statistical data for one or more group of user.
Under the 'Accounting periods for statistics and quota' section, set the First day of the week and First day of the month fields. For example, a month can start on day 15 of the calendar month and end on day 14 of the following month. The first day of the month also sets when the monthly transferred data counter of individual users is set to zero.
