Logging

The TZW's logging features are a pleasure to use, mainly because you get information and not just data. A look at Figure 8 shows you what I mean.

When you compare this with the gobbledygook you typically get with less expensive routers, it really looks like it's a case of you get what you pay for. The log entries are constructed so well that even I can understand what's going on without hitting Google to look up some port number or other cryptic log result. You can clear the log from the admin interface, and also email it or demand or have it sent via email daily, weekly, or when it fills up. You also get emailed alerts - choosing from attacks, system errors, blocked websites and VPN tunnel status - and can sent the log to multiple syslog servers.

Data traffic reports are also available, one of which is shown in Figure 9.

You can also get Bandwidth usage reports by user IP address and type of web service. These reports can't be saved, but you can clear out data and stop and start its collection.
