Hi Saudi,

I would add:

-Logins to the firewall (successful or not)
-Changes to the firewall rules, access lists, configurations, etc
-Any error message (generally on pix they are severity 1,2,3)

For the reports you mentioned, I think top 10 attacked ports or IPs are pretty
much useless. Looking at top 10 traffic generators (from accept) will
not give you
any security benefit too... Maybe only on a virus/worm outbreak.

I would look for bottom 10 attacked ports or bottom 10 attacked IPs. If they
support NBS (or FTS), I would always look for the first time a
specific port or IP is accessed (or being used). I would also generate
reports for accesses outside
business hours...

Hope it helps.
