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.

Web Report Beta

As described in the previous post... the BETA of aaa-reports! enterprise web reporting is now on the download site.

This can be installed on the same server as aaa-report! enterprise itself and requires that IIS is installed with the "Default Web Site" on port 80.

If your IIS doesnt have the Default Web or isnt running on port 80 you'll have to manually add and configure a virtual web folder using the IIS Management Console.

Web Reporting!

The aaa-reports! enterprise product will soon feature web based reporting. The initial release will feature a simple to use query builder that enables a table based report on each of the primary ACS log types (eg Failed Attempts, TACACS+ Adminstration, RADIUS accounting etc)

Once you're happy with the query and the number of matching records founds, the results are displayed in a tabular report with PDF,CSV,XLS export, paging and sorting controls.

Security is handled by Windows authentication on the web server - users will require an account on the aaa-reports! server but can be put into a dedicated group that only allows web access.
