Is there a way in ocPortal to view the activity for a given IP address, not using "Investigate user, by IP address" which gives activity for a user and not for the IP itself.

At the moment I'm looking at my sites raw access logs but there is a lot of noise there (even after filtering IP address) and its difficult to read.

I have an IP address that I need to investigate related to a compromised account.

I always thought that "Investigate user, by IP address" would pull up information on all users using that IP. That what the title infers.

It would be nice to be able to filter the Page View statistics by IP address. I have had a few scrapers hitting my site lately and it would be good to easily view that activity.

Currently, I spend a lot of time reviewing log files.

It does. When there are multiple users for one IP address, it shows the log of the first user and a list of all users using that IP address appears at the top of the screen.

The way I read it initially was that it would see the user as the IP address and show the activity of the IP address.

Agree!

I've only been reviewing the activity relating to one user and one IP address and it still takes a while to work through all the noise in the raw log. Especially initially with knowing what is relevant and what's not.

Hmmmm…that's exactly what i expected it to do. Makes the need for the ability ro filter page views that much greater.
