About search terms

Note: To view the search term logs, you need a Smoothwall Filter license for the Guardian module.

The Search terms log records the search terms and phrases used by users, and the search engine used. Underneath the graph is the log file. The graph shows a real-time representation of the number of hits to domains and the number of those that were blocked. You can export log data in comma-separated (CSV) format.


You can monitor web filter log activity in real time. The Smoothwall Filter and Firewall displays the currently configured log options in real time in a table of log entries and in the web filter graph. The results are updated automatically.

Tip: To get a closer look at what is happening at a specific time, find that time in the graph and click it. The Smoothwall Filter and Firewall stops the real-time display and shows what has been logged at the time you clicked on.
