Barracuda Web Security Gateway

Reporting with the Barracuda Reporting Server

  • Last updated on

If you are running the Barracuda Web Security Gateway version 11.0 and higher, you have the option to purchase and use a Barracuda Reporting Server appliance for a faster, more accurate reporting system that can offload processing from the Barracuda Web Security Gateway. The result is better overall system performance, and, if you are clustering multiple Barracuda Web Security Gateways, this solution provides an aggregate view of reporting data on one system. See the Barracuda Reporting Server for more information about the product.

Just like the Barracuda Web Security Gateway reporting feature, the Barracuda Reporting Server lets you choose from more than 80 system reports that can help you track activity performed by the Barracuda Web Security Gateway. You can either generate a system report on-demand or configure the Barracuda Reporting Server to automatically generate the system reports on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You can configure the system to email the reports to specific email addresses or send them to an FTP or SMB server (see Working with External Servers for more information).

Some reports may contain URLs that are on block lists. If your Barracuda Web Security Gateway is sending reports via email through an email security product such as the Barracuda Email Security Gateway or Barracuda Essentials for Email Security service, make sure to add the IP address of the Barracuda Web Security Gateway to the IP and Port Exemptions list on the BLOCK/ACCEPT > IP Block/Exempt page. This prevents bad URLs from causing the emailed report to be blocked. If you are sending reports through another spam filtering device or service, make sure to specifically allow the IP address of the Barracuda Web Security Gateway on that solution.
