Log Only the Page a User Visits

To log only the main page a user accesses when they browse a site, select the Log Container page only option in the URL Filtering profile.
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 you have 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.
