How to get bandwidth usage logs

I am redirecting authorized, blocked and warning logs to a GrayLog server and there doing some log analyses.
This works well as now I'm able to monitor accessed websites etc.

To move forward, I would need to have an idea of the bandwidth used per IP / website. Which log should be enabled for this.

For example, my final goal is to monitor how many MBs / GBs an user was exchanging (upload / download) with Facebook for example. Or, how much content someone downloaded from Torrent, etc.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi @Milos  

    Current USG is able list how many times that user accessing to WebSite.

    But your requirement needs analyzed by additional server. You may consider SecuReporter.

    It can list all of users accessing history and timestamp to the website.

    And it is able list how many bandwidth is used.

    Thanks! If I understand correctly, secu reporter is not yet live, only available to a limited group of testers in beta. On our end, we're building our own secu reporter if I may say so, and need to know what logs is ZyXEL USG able to send. We are interested in bandwidth usage logs per IP and traffic type.

    Hi @Milos,


    To use SecuReporter, you need to upgrade the device to firmware 4.32.  

    Go to to activate the SecuReporter trial service.


    On ZyWALL, go to CONFIGURATION > Cloud CNM > SecuReporter.

    Enable “Enable SecuReporter” and “Include Traffic Log”.

    Go to MONITOR > UTM Statistics. Make sure “Collect Statistics” of each UTM service is enabled.

    On SecuRepoter, go to Settings > Add Organization and add ZyWALL to the organization.

    Login to SecuReporter with your account.

    We use PRTG Network monitor with our Zyxel Routers.  The Free version will allow you to see bandwidth usage.  It's all done via SNMP.
    I wish Zyxel SecurReporter would have similar functionality, but it doesn't.  
    Here's an example.  Inbound and outbound traffic are shown as above and below the centerline.
