Kerio Control Statistics is a web interface where you can view your own browsing statistics. Statistics are primarily used to create reports for a specified period. Gathering and evaluating statistics requires processing large volumes of data. To reduce the load on the firewall, the data is updated hourly, so, you cannot use Kerio Control Statistics for real-time monitoring of user activity.
Note: If you have sufficient access rights, you can also see other users' statistics. The statistics show traffic between the local network and the Internet. They do not include volumes of data transferred between local hosts and web pages on local servers.

Displaying Kerio Control Statistics
Selecting the Period to View
- By default, Kerio Control Statistics displays the current day. To change the time period, use the toolbar at the upper right of the page.
- The toolbar includes buttons for switching between the daily, weekly, monthly views. The previous and next arrows to the left of those buttons allow you to jump quickly from one view to the next.
Note: The starting day of the week and month can be changed. Contact your administrator for details.
To print any page of the statistics, click the Print button.
Clicking Print displays the current page on a new tab in a printable format.
The No data available alert informs that no data is available in Kerio Control's database for the selected statistics and accounting period. This status can be caused by various different reasons — for example, the selected user account does not exist in the particular time period, the user has not logged in to the firewall within the period, and so on.
The Overall tab includes information about:
- Hourly/Weekly/Monthly Traffic — You can change the time period in the toolbar.
- Top Application Traffic — The five applications that got the most traffic during the selected period. To increase productivity, you can block certain applications or limit their bandwidth.
- Top Visited Web Sites — The five sites that got the most traffic during the selected period.
Top Requested Web Categories — The five categories that were most often viewed during the selected period.
User Details — Your user information stored in Kerio Control.
Used Protocols — The Used Protocols pie chart is shown if you use web, multimedia, VoIP, email, and so on.
Reading the User's Activity Tab
The User's Activity tab is visible only if Kerio Control gathers users' activity records.
The User's activity tab shows detailed information about your browsing activities. You can see:
- What you were doing on the Internet during the selected period
- How much time you spent browsing web pages
