List the different operators and what they can display

The most common operators:

Equal = returns only what is listed in the value field. NOTE: This must match exactly, you cannot use partial numbers or names. 

       Example: client = 192.168.65.51 will return any session where the client IP is 192.168.65.51. 

       Example: host = www.cnn.com will return any session where the host (web filter) is www.cnn.com.

 

NOT equal != returns everything other than what is in the value field. NOTE: You cannot use partials

      Example: client != 192.168.65.51 will return any session where the client IP is NOT 192.168.65.51. 

      Example: host != www.cnn.com will return any session where the host (web filter) is NOT www.cnn.com.

 

 Other very useful operators:

LESS than < returns any value that is considered LESS than the what is entered in the value field. This can be used for both numbers (IP's) or names (username, host, etc.)

        Example: client < 192.168.65.51 will return any session where the client IP is LESS than  192.168.65.51. (i.e. 192.168.65.50, 10.10.10.10, etc)

       Example: host < www.cnn.com will return any session where the host (web filter) is LESS than w. The comparison will be made on the first letter in the field based off of it's place in the alphabet. (i.e. barnesandnoble.com)

 

GREATER than > returns any value that is considered GREATER than the what is entered in the value field. This can be used for both numbers (IP's) or names (username, host, etc.)

      Example: client > 192.168.65.51 will return any session where the client IP is LESS than  192.168.65.51. (i.e. 192.168.65.52, 208.67.222.222, etc)

       Example: host > www.cnn.com will return any session where the host (web filter) is GREATER than w. The comparison will be made on the first letter in the field based off of it's place in the alphabet, then the second letter, then the third, etc.  (i.e. www.urbandictionary.com)

 

LESS than or Equal <= returns any value that is considered LESS than the what is entered in the value field, or exactly what is in the value field. This can be used for both numbers (IP's) or names (username, host, etc.)

 

GREATER than or Equal >= returns any value that is considered GREATER than the what is entered in the value field, or exactly what is in the value field. This can be used for both numbers (IP's) or names (username, host, etc.)
