Welcome to the extraxi blog...

If you found this page accidentally and don't know what extraxi is about... we specialise in reporting solutions for the Cisco Secure ACS and Funk SBR access control servers (aka AAA servers).

The servers are predominantly used to secure network services such as dial, wireless lan, vpn, firewall and network device management.

Typically these servers just chuck out MBs of raw CSV log data about network activity. What we do is to help collect this data then import and turn it into useable information.

aaa-reports! enterprise edition - beta now available

aaa-reports! enterprise edition beta 2 is now available for download. Please use our contact page to request a copy.

New feature highlights:
  • Scalable SQL Server Express databases for upto 48GB capacity.
  • Advanced parameter filter on canned reports (equal, like, null, ...) incl wildcards.
  • Enhanced Query Builder. Re-order & re-name columns + complex expressions.
  • All ACS log types now supported (incl. appliance, replication etc).
  • New look UI and usability enhancements.

Note the system requirements for this version are higher than for aaa-reports! v2.x and this is because it uses SQL Server as the main repository. Ideally you would be installing on a dual/quad core 2 system with at least 2GB RAM.

There are two installers which must be used in the correct order:
  1. Environment setup. Installs .NET framework and SQL Server Express
  2. Application setup
