Log Only the Page a User Visits

A container page is the main page that a user accesses when visiting a website, but additional pages might be loaded along with the main page. If the
Log Container page only
option is enabled in a URL filtering profile (
Objects
Security Profiles
URL Filtering
, only the main container page will be logged, not subsequent pages that may be loaded within the container page. Because URL filtering can potentially generate a lot of log entries, you may want to turn on this option, so log entries will only contain those URIs where the requested page file name matches the specific mime-types. The default set includes the following mime-types:
  • application/pdf
  • application/soap+xml
  • application/xhtml+xml
  • text/html
  • text/plain
  • text/xml
    If enabled the
    Log container page only
    option, there may not always be a correlated URL log entry for threats detected by antivirus or vulnerability protection.
