    Problem with Pix is it is logging literally everything, hence we have
    multiple DMZs.. for frame, dial-up, internet, internal, etc. I have not
    fully explored filtering, we use Kiwi Syslog Daemon for logging but the file
    grows extremely huge. In the future, SQL solution (which it supports) will
    be implemented but for now I need something live to monitor.

    Can you use the Cisco Pix Device Manager to filter the log?

    if you tell your PIX to log to a syslog server and ramp up the PIX logging
    to informational youll see every URL connection made from withinyour
