Agreed. I am also a systems admin and we use Websense to track the Internet activity of our employees (about 450 at the corporate campus I work at) as well, and it's a massive amount of info to go through as far as an employee's complete browsing history is concerned. Further, only an authorized HR person can request to see an employee's "history," (not even an employee's supervisor can request it directly) and we have to limit report queries to site types visited as opposed to sites actually visited just to make the information usable, otherwise the report for one employee can be literally hundreds to thousands of pages for just a 2-3 month timeframe.
