Using Smartfilter, and Squid access logs, I don't see a category.
When I run a policy trace, I am seeing category in each transaction (by smartfilter). However, the accesslog , which is configued for the squid format, doesn't contain a category. Can you explain why?
What fields does a squid access log contain?
Does a squid access log contain a field for category?
Can I use a squid access log, and expect Bluecoat Reporter to process it properly?
Bluecoat Reporter is not designed to process Squid access logs. The format of a Squid Access log does not contain a category field, and hence, while the SG policy finds a category for each websites, there is no field for category in this access log. For more information on the access log fields, please see this WIKI page - Squid log files.
Here's an exmple of a policy that is configured for the Squid log format - the log is called CIFS which is only the name, but the access log type is squid, which I've highlighted.
!- BEGIN access_logging
NOTE: For a Bluecoat Reporter solution we suggest you process access logs that confirm to the MAIN type format and not use squid -FAQ282 Often a access log may be called Main, but is configured to use another Access log type, such as squid, so be sure you are confirming the Access Log Type, as per this article, and not merely the name.
