Go back and tell the PHB who told you "i want to know how long people
spend on the web" and tell them it is a technical impossibility.
HTTP works like:
client -> server: could you give me page "/pr0n/julie_andrews/index.html"?
server -> client: here ya go ......................................
<client displays it to user>
so user could spend a minute looking at it, or an hour. The server (or
proxy) will never know.
What you can look at is the /frequency/ of peoples web access. Eg,
setup squid, force everyone to go through it and run calamaris on the
logs. It will produce a web page with several categories, including:
"Incoming TCP-requests by host" and a list of clients sorted by the
number of web accesses. This list will roughly correspond to the
computers of your most web-abusing users.
