You might want to look at the Squid proxy and the
log analyzer Sarg.

http://www.squid-cache.org/
http://sarg.sourceforge.net/sarg.php
If you look at the sample report on the Sarg site,
you might notice
the graph and clock icons between the num and userid
fields.  This
will show you a few stats about the user including
what times the user
was on the Internet and how much bandwidth was
consumed.

There seems to be a ton of log analyzers for Squid
so if Sarg doesn't
seem to fit the bill, look at the Logfile Analysis
link on the Squid
site.

This will require a Linux box and you'll also want
to force everyone
to go through your proxy and deny ports 80 and 443
on your firewall
except to your proxy server.  If you run Active
Directory, changing
everyone's Internet Explorer connection settings is
very simple.

A member of management has asked me to research
available programs to log internet usage (web
surfing) on our corporate network.

We are running a Windows server with a mix of XP
and 2K clients.

What have some of you used to provide this in a
report that management can use to show that a user
is spending too much time on the internet?

I don't have a Linux box up and running, but if
the right Linux based app is suggested, I would
consider going that route.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Please try and keep this on topic, I've seen
questions lke this before degrade into a privacy
violation, "big brother" type of debate.
